    So I got home last night aroun 1:30 from a friends house, and i was tired so i locked up my car and went to bed....well this morning around 10 my mom yells at me to come downstairs, so i go down there and my car doors are hanging wide open.....they fucking stole my $300 sony cd player, my amp, my subs, my cds (over 100 of them that were store bought + countless burned ones), and they stole everything out of my glove box (my registration, insurance card, my wheel lock (which I have no idea where to get another one), and just EVERYTHING) omg im soo pissed...

    Fookin sucks. I had my shit broken into a few months ago, they got all my CD's (easily over 100) and my shift knob (???).

    As someone else said though, be glad they didn't take your car.

    alarms don't do shit. they are so easy to bypass its not even funny.

    it sucks that your shit got stolen, but just be glad they didn't take the whole car.

    here's some info i just read on the dfh list that someone wrote up about how to prevent the theft of your honda....

    99.9999% of all the stolen hondas I have seen, purchased, or had
    contact with (legitimately via salvage auctions and insurance
    companies) had they ignition switched broken off the column and the
    actual switch removed from the locking mechanism. They do not "pop
    the ignitions" by removing the lock cylinder, but instead just remove
    the 2 phillips screws that hold the switch to the lock and then turn
    the switch to start the car. They do this because its simple and
    fast. The interface between these two mechanism is a definate design
    flaw that does nothing to deter theft. So you can easliy take some
    steps to slow the thieves down if you reinforce the interface.
    Simply taking some lock-tite or superglue and putting it on the
    phillips screws would probably stop 75% of all urban theives who do
    not have the skills or tools to deal with this unexpected setback
    while in your driveway or infront of your house pressed for time.
    There is a fair amount of room in there and you could easliy build
    something else that would reinforce the interface. 2" of rubber
    coating would work too... ;) anything that would prevent them from
    easily and quickly seperating the two and starting your car. This
    combined with a series of kill switches and other security devices
    out to help a lot...of course thay are going to trash the car and
    take the stereo when they can't start it, but least you get to keep
    your motor....

    yea they dont do much, but the theives will think twice about fucking with your car. 1st thing i got for my car was an alarm. my insurance went down 9% and my car has never been broken into.

    That's how my car was stolen, and when I put it back together when I bought it, I used the punch screws where you only can tighten them but not take them out, and I jb welded my locking mechanism to the steering column.

    fortunately all the hicks here in mt would just throw a rock through the window and steal the sound equipment and most likely leave the car alone. i have an old clarion security system that is "basically" a movement sensor, and i feel confident enough with just that.

    but in bigger cities or areas with higher crime rates, you can do little things to make stealing your stuff harder. one car i saw had razor blades hidden around/underneath the sound equipment. it wasn't visible but if you tried to lift an amp or sub box you'd get sliced up pretty bad.
    starter kill relays are also a good idea with jsut a hidden switch you need to turn to turn off and on your starter.

    if you have kyokugens, PM and I will tell you how to get new ones (even though they are the shadyiest product ever and are so easy to steal without a key, it is nice to have the normal one)

    I say get them lugs cut off quick and replaced before they come back for the wheels, if they are that ballsy (sp). As far as the alarm goes, it couldn't hurt but if the theif knows what they are doing, they will still find a way to get your shit. My brother had an alarm on his car, and from the time it went off, he got up hauled ass outside just to see the guys driving off. Wiped out everything that wasnt bolted down. :angry:
