I don't know what part of Orange County you've been to, but the Orange County I live in isn't exactly a safehaven for leaving valuable things exposed in your car, which is partly why I have limo tint and a sun shade to keep prying eyes out of my car. :O

i was just curious because the crime in charlotte for car break ins/stolen cars was very high this year and one of my friends bought a jdm type r motor put it in his ek hatch and two weeks later somebody stole his car. im just wondering because our cars are 06 and up you would think the technology in these cars would make it almost impossible to steal.

Wait until Kpro comes out. All you will need then is a Kpro'd ECU, a laptop & a key for the ignition but not to defeat the Immobilizer. The Kpro ECU & laptop will defeat the Immobilizer because you can turn off that function in Kpro. Or a flatbed. The Immobilizer is not perfect because there are cases of EP's & RSX's being stolen & they both have the Immobilizer. If a thief wants your car there is nothing you can do to stop them only slow them down.

Put a boot on the wheel (if they try to drag it onto a flatbed it'll be too conspicuous), take out the main fuses under the hood (who walks around with one those), get a alarm with a perimeter sensor (stand too close and it flips out), leave several nightvision cameras pointed at it, park it in a lot with barbed wired on top and make sure you're parked next to something more expensive!

Edited the last sentence in my post.


Those all sound good but if a thief wants something they're going to get it. It's a car not a 10 carat diamond.

Why would you wanna ask that?
Kinda obvious.

If the cars are getting ripped off left and right then he may consider something else. The Civic has always been a popular car to steal, especially the Si models. Mainly because Honda's engines are pretty easy to swap between models.

That's my EXACT rationale behind having limo tint and sunshade up whenever I park my car. I mean, of course I have a crappy stock civic, but still.
