BMW X5 and Land Rover top thieves' target list

They are the 'most-wanted' cars for many people. The BMW X5, Land Rover Range Rover, BMW M3 and the Audi RS4 remain firm favourites.

But new research also shows they are among the 'most wanted' by car thieves, too.

That's according to the latest figures from stolen vehicle recovery expert TRACKER. These four cars all retain their top positions in the company's top 10 most frequently stolen and recovered vehicles of 2010 in the UK.

Nearly two in three of the vehicles recovered last year were worth an average of €30,000.
