How Secure is your car?
Posted 25 March 2009 - 10:03 PM
Most of the alarms I've seen that BB, CC or even some of the local shops install are simply CRAP. It's not the brand of the alarm that matters, but how it's installed. I'm willing to bet most people with an aftermarket alarm I can reach my hand under the drivers dash, find the brain in within 10 seconds, and trace where the starter cut relay is in another 10. Also setting your alarm too sensitive will desensitize your neighbors. If it's falsing at every car that drives by your neighbors, and even you, will learn to ignore it. If you set it correctly it gets a lot more attention when it does go off. I set warn pretty liberally, but primary is always thoroughly tested and I make damn sure it won't false just because it's raining or some riceboy with a fart cannon exhaust drives by.
I use a false panel from an 02 accord radio to cover my F90, and NEVER leave anything in plain sight that is even the least bit interesting. I also have lojack, but that was more to help with insurance costs that it's functionality.
Sorry, I take security pretty seriously

One Last quick rant...If you are wondering how they are stealing your vehicle with a transponder key, get a hold of GM before they go bankrupt on Monday and thank them for making the vehicle still start without a transponder key if you force the key cylinder forward! (06 and prior!)

No security measures implemented at the moment.
I actually don't have the f700 secured at all so that my dash isn't ruined if someone DOES decide to take it.
I've seen people's dashes that had the head units secured with the bolt in the back, and it just causes the thieves to tear MORE of the car apart to get to it than is needed.
Having just discovered this section, I am wondering if I even want to keep the nice amount of car audio I have invested...
