    As some of you may know.. I had my car stolen, and basically stripped of everything that was cool about it. I had just dropped about ~1,500 into the appearance of it, and thank god i kept the stock parts and spare rims/tires.
    Things that were stolen:
    Kicker L7 15 in ported box
    Infinity Reference 1211 mono block amp
    Stinger Cap (20 farad or something like that)
    All wiring
    Alpine head unit
    Nokyo E-Brake handle, shift knob, pedals
    CTR front headlights
    Carbon Fiber Hood (OEM style)
    Carbon Fiber tail lights
    2000 civic front bumper (had mesh in the grill)
    15" motegi traklites
    Brembo big brake kit (front) :(
    they even stole my last piece of dignity, the only honda emblem remaining on my car. AND my honda license plate frame.. then they ripped the front one off completely, so now im missing the front license plate. WTF. anyway, heres the pics.

    Ill post up pics of the interior later.. but here's all I have for now.
    (keep in mind, this is using what i had lying around to fix the car)

    Rear

    Damn thieves :ph34r: insurance payed for almost all of it, the check was ~200 less than the car is worth in KBB. lol. Im just glad I got it back, and it still runs. Ill fix it, but after I buy an alarm :huh:

    Oh, and a quick question. I'd like to change my locks to something less easy to steal, what locks will fit in there? (just doors, and hatch, not ignition)?? Thx.

    Pics were taken after I recovered the car and repaired it so that it was driveable again, those are the extra parts I had lying around.
    Those are motegi MR7's. They came before the traklites, and i decided to keep them just in case something happened to the traklites. The headlights were also before i went to the CTR headlights. Thats the stock bumper.. with the grill i put in it, but on the left side (out of pic) its beat up a bit, which is why i went to the 2000 bumper. Then i had to slap the stock taillights back in there :(

    lol no, those are both pics from after.

    Yeah the CF tailights were cheap as hell, but i needed something cuz i was planning on smoking the stock taillights, but that didnt happen.

    I hate the feeling of having my car stolen, I feel violated :(

    if you have an alarm, get the 4dr rear door handles and put that as yours, they have no lock holes

    Unless you yank it out of the dash and re-splice all of the color coded wires back together. 5 minutes, tops.

    A motivated thief will get your car. It doesnt matter what you do. Shaved handles, locks, blah blah. You can break a window with a fist (no tools necessary) and bypass all of that. But DO get a good quality alarm with a backup battery and ignition cut, and remove your dash when you install it. make it where there is no way in hell you can get to the thing unless you pull the dash. Mount it above your heater or something. and mount the siren in the hardest to get to spot you can find, jack the car up and mount it underneath if you have to. Even an amature thief can bypass an ignition cut, but you sure will gather witnesses as he drives around with a car that is screaming bloody murder the whole time. Assuming you hide the equipment well enough to keep him away from the siren wires.

    Does anyone make a gps tracking device, separate from the alarm that you could hide in the car somewhere? That way you could at least find its whereabouts.

    Thanks for the advice, and the help with the locks. I'll definetely look into that, eliminating the locks all together would be great. I'm looking into a compustar alarm, and installing it myself... i just dont want this to happen again, or if it must happen again, i want to know it is happening so i can do something about it.

    Personally, that location for me would be inside the car on something like a 3 second delay. Buy the absolute loudest thing you can get without breaking the law. Something like a 160db blast horn.

    Better yet, install the hornblasters train horn under your passenger seat, same delay time. Let's see how much you enjoy my stereo with permanent hearing damage, bitch!

    door locks have nothing to do with your car getting stolen. if you have a honda/integra your odds of them getting into your car are just as easy if you left the car unlocked. all you have to do is pull the window back and reach in to unlock it.

    the best thing you can do is get an alarm with hidden interior and exterior alarms, an auto-loc for your clutch, and 2 separate (and hidden) kill switches.

    but i've said it before and i'll say it again to parrot everyone. if they want it, they will get it.

    You cant yank it out of the dash. If you read the description of the product, it has a armored sleeve that extends to the firewall so that the wires cannot be reconnected...
