Keeping the car unlocked rarely works. Most ******* thieves cut tops first and never even try the doors. My buddy had his top cut twice (stock radio) with the doors unlocked.

fmowry: interesting perspective. i'll add it to my database as a reference point.

apparently MD thieves are dumber than E. LA thieves? cuz the FIRST time around, the car was unlocked, and they just jacked the radio w/o cutting the top...

cjernigan: dude, these are real legit shops. signage, office hours and even a telephone number. plus, a day laborer stole my fiance's engagement ring this summer. i think i have the right for bits of cheap labor for the REST OF MY GDAMN LIFE...

I was serious about supporting them, if it saves you money who gives a ****. I'd rather pay a mexican $20 to do a job a white man would charge a $100 for.

Right before I sold my NA 4 years ago somebody broke into it in the park 'n drive parking lot where I was parked. They stole the cheapy head unit I had and a crappy amp in the trunk. The car was locked and they didn't cut the top. They punched the pax lock with a screwdriver. Of course it slipped and put a big *** gouge along the door so I had to get the hole dam thing painted as opposed to just fixing the lock.

I guess it was easier than cutting the top, but still cost me big bucks. Doesn't anyone smash (windows) and run anymore?
