    Default Someone's trying to nick my car???

    Well i'm really worried now i've had neighbours telling me there's people hanging around my house wearing black every now and then and i'm assumming they're after my Veccy or get in the house!

    Just last night 2 folk were ringing on my door at 11pm asking for help i refused to open the door thinking what if...

    Think it's time for a tracker

    Make is visually hard to steal as well matey. A wheel clamp, steering wheel bar, Crook Lock, etc etc etc.

    I used to remove my rotor arm off my old Cortina. I'm not sure what you could do to your Vec though.

    theres no way they can steel you car without your keys,make sure your keys are kept where you sleep and dont leave keys in you door,watched real hustle and they use like a maggnet stick or coat hanger,and if you not sure who's at your door don't answer best to be safe mate,but a tracker is good if they get your keys,watched traffic cops and what they did was take the car park it up and see if any police come so no damage to carat all,

    Although, to avoid a confrontation with possible armed attackers, I'd leave them in plain view on the kitchen table or something. At the end of the day its just a car that can be replaced. (Oh and if they want it they will take it no matter what)

    You could remove the coil pack or something else like a few fuses for the fuel pump etc?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    good reply if theres no car then they can't nick it,its not fair though all this to save your thousands of pouns worth of car that you've worked hard for,what weve got is a camera that activates with motion sensors and a security light so they both come on not exspensive and it beeps evert time it activates so people outside can hear it,and obviously it would be used at night mostly good investment,think camera was about 100
