I drive a black honda civic tinted black windows. I have an alarm but its really basic, came with the car. I don't really keep it up anymore its kinda dirty and theres wires hanging out of the seat from all the times its been broken into and everythings been stolen. It was broken into about 3 times in the last year. 2 of which were when I was in Iraq. 4 times all together. I'm fed up. First time window was smashed headunit only. second time they stole subs + amps + headunit. replaced everything. third time they stole the amp subs the headunit was saved because my dad took the faceplate with him. forth time I didn't replace anything I was sick and tired and just had my alpine headunit left. I would take it off every night at my house. Sometimes leaving it in my car or taking it with me in the house. Well this last time I took off the face plate and left it in my glove compartment. I wonder why they chanced it but they got lucky I didn't take it with me. I don't know exactly how they opened the door? I think the window was slightly cracked open and that plastic trimming thats on the window is kind of loose. but they poped the hood pulled the power so the alarm stopped. They pulled the headunit found the faceplate and threw everything around that was in the glove compartment didn't take any registration papers or my sweater that was in the back. Now I'm left with nothing except my speakers 6 1/2 and 6x9's which never been tampered with. *****.
It can be about 3 different people/groups that I know. I used to brag about it to lots of people but i'm more mature now. 2 people that live around the corner that i never see anymore and 1 person that hangs around the apartments over here, I'm pretty sure hes doing it or knows whats going on. I confronted him one night he said it was "the mexicans". but he hangs out with all the scum around here so i'm pretty sure he has a clue. it really ***** though.
So I'm ready to strap down and get a real alarm and start being smart the way everything is installed and taking the face plate everywhere, special screws/bolts and I need to get a gun! So does anyone have any suggestions? I don't really want to hastle installing everything myself but we'll see what happens. I don't have many tools laying around I might as well start getting some. But wheres a good place to get an alarm? I'll start there. How much am I looking to spend? I'm probably not getting that much from insurance this time around since it was only my headunit I'm going to try and get an estimate on the trimming and some other damage. I look forward to any advice.
