1) Leave nothing out in the car. Don't want to tempt someone to break a window just to grab your old, empty wallet.
2) If you're parking it in an attended, private lot, the alarm might do some good. Otherwise, if the person wants the car, they'll take it, alarm or not.
3) Lojack is worth it, IMHO. I got mine installed for $500 in Boston. If you're going to be leaving your car for days on end, it probably won't do much good, but if you think you'd notice within a few hours of it disappearing, then Lojack will be your most comforting anti-theft device.
The biggest threat around here is vandalism and breaking in to steal something laying around. Lock your wheels, keep the inside of the car clean, and you'll *almost* be able to rest with comfort. Oh, and don't leave a spare key in a box hidden on the car somewhere.
Good luck with the move! Boston rocks - enough here to make you forget you're in school.
Yeah, wheel locks are good.. inexpensive but effective.DMD said:]
Thanks for the tips I will keep them in mind. I plan to leave it in a parking garage downtown, the lot does have cameras I found out as it is where patients park to come to the BU medical center. Do you think Wheel Locks are a good investment? I do plan to get the LoJack system. If I get that system do you still recommend the dealer (BMW) alarm? Thanks again. I am excited about the move and cannot wait to get up to Boston. Hopefully I will see yours and other bimmers around town.
You've been reading too many Lojack adds. The Insurance company can't decide to give the car back to you if they can't find it. If the car doesn't have lojack, chances are that it will either be in pieces, or in the back of a shipping container bound for South America, before the owner is off the phone with his insurance agent to put in the claim.
I knew some guy who hung out near the Harvard Ave. T stop that had a connection with some guy near San Francisco - grew the grass himself. Man, that s**t is *dank*! :yikes:Trea said:Re: Where did you find gras in Allston???
