Ever get broke into?

Man it sucks. Walk outside at 6am to go to school and notice something is wrong when my radio consol is torn freaking apart.... Yay... Passenger glass is shattered but suprisingly nothing is stolen. Its like they were trying to do it without opening the door (setting off car alarm) and either couldn't reach far enough in to get the deck out or they got spooked and ran. This was at my GF's apartment where her roomates car had been broken into as well. Of course the cops can't do much.. Ah well. At least nothing was stolen. My cd's were sitting right there as well and they are fine. It sucks nonetheless.

Some carnage shots. I know ya'll love those.









Took my cd's and deck face inside.. I normally take them as well when the car is here. Makes sense the one night I don't take them this happens...

Sux, glad it hasn't happened to me, but I do have the stock system. Good to hear nothing was taken though.

I am just happy they did it pretty clean. Looks like the consol will just pop right back in. Nothing was really ripped or torn out. Kinda scary.. Almost like he knew what he was doing...

Maybe you should get some laminate for the glass, I don't have any first hand experience with it but its worth a shot. The window would still be broken but nothing could get taken.

Here's an article I found, and a company that makes it, little pricey though: http://www.usace.com/laminate_thwarts.html

in your car do you have a loud system or just an after market head unit? the reason i ask is if you play your system loud around your g/f apartment it most likely some one that lives around her because the same thing happened to my friend (he is a dumb @$$ thow) but he was not as lucky as you.
