here's a direct quote from EPHatch which is where i found the thread originally.... i cannot believe it!! :xyxnervou

My friend discovered this the other day at work :meek:












The next day he found this

















There is easily over $10,000 in damage! they cut the front seat belts to get the Factory SI seats out and cut the harness that connects the seats to the car.

I am so sick and tired of thieves doing **** like this! This car belongs to NO ONE and still it got hit! How stupid is this there is no way they can use the parts or sell them as they will be noticed and I know for a fact you can not buy the Mugen parts off the self at a Honda dealer because Honda and Mugen will not sell the parts unless you have the proof that you own a 2008 Honda Civic Mugen SI!
im pretty sure we all HAD to figure this would happen @ some point cuz apparently NO ONE on this f*cking planet can work hard for something & feel at ease when they have it.... but this is 10-fold worse IMO. the car wasn't even sold yet!!!!!! looks to me like this dealer prolly learned a HARD lesson when it comes to the safety & security of a limited production Honda model. :sadwavy:

just figured i'd share. searched & found nothing related. so if repost, i apologize in advance.

help keep our 999 OTHER Mugen Si's safe here in the U.S.!! :redface:

now then, the REAL question is... if the Mugen parts are as restricted as Honda is trying to make them out to be, wouldn't a shift knob, mugen si emblems, seats (ehh maybe not cuz they are exactly like Si seats :() front lip, & wheels sorta stick out when the jackasses tried to resale them?? you would think so but you never really know.

this is a DAMN good reason for dealers to get their Mugen's in & IMMEDIATELY PDI them, detail them, & slap those b!tches in their showroom ASAP!!!!!

*whew* i need to calm down. theft angers me so much!! :chill:

discuss. :popcorn:

I freaking HATE thieves! Of course, we all knew this was coming. I would rather that happen to the dealer, rather than a buyer. The car didn't even have wheel locks for christ's sake! Just look for the douchebag riding around town with Mugen GP's, a Mugen seat, shift knob, emblems, and placard. What a cheap loser, that obviously has no work ethic, values, or morals. Karma is a ***** though. He'll figure it out soon enough.

it's the dealer fault, i don't blame the thieves because they are thieves, but the dealer should've kept it in the showroom, not out on the lots. btw, is the front lips missing on the 1st pic? just wondering.

y is the RPM on 4k?
another sign it def had not been PDI'd yet. when the cars come in (specifically civics, accords, ridgelines to name a certain few) they dont read correctly on the RPM gauge. once the car gets PDI'd & the fuses & whatnot are installed that are sitting in the glovebox upon arrival, everything functions normally within the car.

good question. most ppl dont know that unless they work or have worked @ a Honda dealer. first new car delivery when i started about a year ago, i thought the damn car was broken LOL!! :redface:

it didnt have the mugen front lip from the beginning either did anyone else realize this
the front lip is installed during the PDI process b/c Honda fears upon unloading of the car the trucker would either scrape or destroy the lip when off-loading. surely it was stolen too cuz it is sitting longways in the backseat & into the trunk area all wrapped up with the installation bolts & everything you need. the 60/40 split fold seat is down upon new car arrival.


WOW.... just W--O--W!!!

please guys/gals if you have a MUGEN GET AN ALARM i would hate this to happen to actual owners who forked out lots of hard earned money for a limited edition... also this goes to ALL drivers! DONT LET PEOPLE KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE if you dont know the people dont let them know where you live... when you go to meets make sure no one follows you etc...its a messed up world and you have to be careful and i honestly see Si's becoming the next "integras" if you know what i mean... weve already had 2 thefts that ive seen on the site so it def can be done

yeah and the dealer messed up on this one UUMM WHEEL LOCKS!! come on the wheel locks would have helped them save the wheels which im sure was one of the biggest reasons why the car got hit seeing as they are very valuable and lets say they hit th car anyways well the wheels would still be there and the whole car would not have suffered the damage caused by sitting on its face


btw 20 people viewing this thread!!! EDIT SOLO8th already pointed that out!!

lol no worries.. but ill see your 20 & raise you 28 currently. :eek:mg:

btw, does any1 know what # of 1000 this Mugen is. dont want to hear that someone bought THIS Mugen Si as a theft recovery vehicle if it comes to that & still possibly might have paid FULL price. that would be tragic. :(
