    Strangely enough that would only deter crappy thieves, and even them not o much. Both my roomates cars were stolen the same night and the officer we lived across from had is car parked out there not far from the vehicles that were stolen. Heck one didn't even run, just pushed down the street with the other to strip parts out.

    After that I thought about chaining my car to the ground. They started pulling away at my door but didnt get in my rex. No damage other than one broken B pillar tab.

    the cars in the garage whenever we're home, so them being stolen should be minimized that way.... i was referring more to home invasions :) i've had terrible luck with cars being broken into/stolen( 3 cars stolen, 1 set of wheels stolen, 1 sound system) so i am praying that it doesnt happen to my house.

    sure, i'll take a few tomorrow after i wash it. i bought it with the wheels on it. deffinately not my first choice (would actually rather have the stockers back). i was looking at the konig feathers in a bronze/gold but the wife shot me down, haha. the rims i really want are volk ce28n wheels, but they are a bit out of my price range :)

    yeah those rims need to be at least painted a lighter color... they are not doing that car justice as is
