Hope that my first post is a constructive one.

I once read an interview dialogue between a motoring journalist and a professional car thieve from Hong Kong. That guy mentioned, there is no car that they cannot steal. Even Mercedes Benz with keyless entries, can be easily stolen. They tapped the electronic sensors of the bonnet, opened it, changed the on board computers, and walla! unlocks the door with their own key, and start the engine. <-- Thats how good professional car thieves are. The gripe when stealing it? THE TIME NEEDED FOR EACH CAR.

When on their hunting for potential victims, they determine their target by the time needed to complete the tasks. Not specifically car models. And if a car is installed with very high tech, sophisticated anti-burglary systems, which made the thieve, able to get themselves into it, but no matter how hard they try, keep failing on starting the vehicles, they will get mad and starts to vandalize the car.

Hence, as mentioned, the smartest way to prevent your car for being stolen, is to let them see, they have to spend alot of time on that particular vehicle, then they will wander off. How to do that? buy three items, steering lock, gear level lock, and pedal lock. These steel locks, although intrusive, requires brutal force to cut off, hence after considering that they have to first open the doors, cut off three items, taking the total time to more than half an hour, they would rather choose a fast, easy prey.

Hopefully you guys can make this a sticky and let everyone read it. This is very effective in my point of view. Far better than satellite systems, Cobra or Vipers.... :)

the best tip eveR! :biggrin:

nowadays..regular or original alarm systems aren't really effective la..i mean..if an alarm goes of..most of us will think that.."oh,just another car that has gone haywire"

even worse..locking cars with just your keys!

paling teruk is..ppl who dont even lock their cars!just this morning i was parked beside a saga which was unlocked.. :secruity:

so...the best way to prevent your car frm getting stolen..slapping on all 3 of those locks!heheheheh :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

I think our concerned is preventing the getting into the car? once inethey can do what they want to your car.

How can we prevent them from even breaking the glass and stealing our precious 'gadgets' from our hard earned salaries...

.. i think it's impossible to stop them from getting into your car, even if you have those bulletproof cars that VVIPs use.. as for preventing them breaking the glass, the most you can do is by applying that LLUMAR and VPS Security Film.. it makes it harder for them to break your windows.. but if ur car is left unattended in a dodgy place for long, no use also lor.. eventually can still break in.. prevention is still the best, try to park your car in a 'safer' place and pray hard..hehe

nop..the easiest is to sell ur car..use other transport...then u 100% wont kena stolen....

prevent like the 3 lock are useful if the thief wan to steal ur car..buy most case nowadays are break in and stole the gadgets...prevent from getting in the car are more useful..

by install an expensive alarm that got wat satellite or watever is no point to me...as u all said, a pro thief still can steal the car..y not they can just rip the things off?

prevent is better than finding where ur car is after stolen..so those alarm that got satellite or watever are not so useful..prevention is the best....

brake pedal locks, steering locks and gear shifter locks are things of the past, as it is easily beaten by the tow trucks..

today.. we use wheel clamps.. install 2 diagonally... and your car would most likely be safe..until they start using helicopters to steal cars..
