Xmas eve stereo bandit
 
2 Attachment(s)
So unfortunately on the night before xmas eve, i fell victim to the stereo bandit. As you can see in the picture, it's pretty nasty looking. The prick is so lucky I didn't catch him or id be happily sitting in a cell and he'd be 6' under...anyways what's troubling me is not the theft, but now my car wont unlock. I get no response when i put the key in and for some reason the loud alarm that didnt fu*kn go off when i got snaked decides to go off each time i attempt to unlock the door. And what i also noticed was that the headlights and tail lights aren't flashing like they're supposed to when the alarm is triggered..Its annoying because each time i try and unlock my car the alarm decides to go off and stop after a minute or two. The prick stole my stereo and smashed my driver side window at 1:00 am in my apartment complex garage lot. We have surveilance and a tape but the a-hole is all covered up and appears to have been anyone..(crappy footage) lol talk about rotten luck! The car not wanting to unlock just adds to my frustration >_<

After losing multiple car audio setups at great cost to me and my vehicles, I simply gave up on owning aftermarket gear visible through the windows.

Sorry to see this happen. Makes you feel violated.

Thanks for sharing sir, it's good to be reminded im not alone in this type of situation. 1st resolution i made this year is a new car alarm and the 2nd is window tint....this does make me just want to pop my oem face plate back in for a while..being flashy definitely has it's price. Luckily they didnt pop my trunk and yank my subs and amp while they were at it.. :P i even had 2 ipods in my glove compartment. So this was definitely a wake up call and made me paranoid.
