Punks keep breaking into my f-ing car!

Last night, for the second time this summer, my car window was smashed and my door frame trashed all in an attempt to find my aftermarket stereo's faceplate. It was in the house both times.

I am SO SICK of m-f-ers breaking into my car and trying to steal my s-! Both times they walked away with practically NOTHING of value other than my $200 smashed window (and this time it looks like they tried to prybar the door too!). This is driving me crazy. My insurance deductible is $250, so this comes straight out of my pocket.

So let's see... since I got the stereo, my car's been smashed in twice... that means my stereo has cost me an extra $400 or more... total of $700 or so. That's ridiculous.

I think I'm just going to leave my f-ing car unlocked. That way they can look all they f-ing want for the faceplate and will leave my car intact. If someone wanted to steal the car completely, they probably wouldn't mind smashing the window anyway...

I would just leave your car unlocked, that is what my mom had to do with her car. They kept doing the same thing to hers and I bought her a deck for mothersday, but she doesn't even have anything else. It was jsut so she could have a cd player. Piss me off so bad!

I got a python alarm, usually scares people off. Are your windows tinted, or can they easily see in?

Turn your system down when you're 5 blocks away from your house. And get a trunk monkey.

This sucks.
Where exactly do you park your car? Cause this sounds like a dodgy place to be. Get a better alarm.

Try want i did. Get a stock radio an old crappy looking on from a junk the ugly the better. Get a dremel and cut the crappy stock one face plat off. One you got it cut off use some thing so it will stick on ur good one. That what when they look in it just looks like an old one, 2nd get a lil blinking red led and but it in on the dash so it looks like u have an alarm, 3rd get an alarm.

Thanks for the advice guys... I will get an alarm whenever i have the money... currently I still need to fix up a few other things.

Also, I don't have tint yet either-- probably part of the reason they broke in. My friend suggested leaving it unlocked but with a steering wheel lock-- do those work well?

I would get the blinking red led. It's 5 bucks and most will see it and leave. Like this one http://www.autozone.com/R,NONAPP2439...ductDetail.htm

You can cut the wheel to get the club and others off. Get one that lock the brake pedal or clutch like this one.http://www.autosportcatalog.com/imag...ub_brake_1.jpg
