Apparently it takes a bit of expertise to steal a BMW. When we installed LowJack on our 740i, the service rep told me (paraphrasing) that it is quite few and far between that a BMW gets stolen...their words, not mine.

We had it installed anyway.

Maybe Im blind or dyslexic or both, but Im surprised to not see the Acura Integra on there, I know Integras get stolen a lot on the west coast because theyre one of the few imports with a stock engine strong enough to take nitrous oxide. Or at least I think thats right.

Yea, I live on the west cost. And my friends Integra was stolen from SCHOOL. But it was just striped for interior things like the new stearo he had, the hudge woffer in the back and all the other speakers. He found it a few days later ditched at the park. He restored everything that was missing and put a very nice Viper alarm system in.

When I take my Integra out to drive around to places I always leave it in a well lit place where I can look out and see my car, at a resturant for instance. As far as for school, we have cameras in the parking lot and I park my Integra right under it, I dare someone to steal it :-). If its at my house its always garaged. If I'm going to a party, I never drive, I don't like leaving my car outside. Not many people here steal cars, but stereos is a different issue. I would be insanely pissed to find my deck ripped out.

A car alarm system does sound like a very good idea though, before I get any more speakers. Can anyone suggest any good alarm systems, like viper?

Personally...I hope someone steals my car(s)...that's what I pay insurance for...

If any of you were smart, you'd take your car into your insurance every time you get a mod that is actually worth some money. You get it covered on your insurance and then...who cares if they steal it...it's covered.

Of course none of you "boys" can afford the insurance needed for your toys...you just cross your fingers hoping no one steals/damages your cars.
