  • Anybody had their screen stolen (UK)?

    Im planning to put a laptop/touchscreen into my car, Im debating weather to try get hold of the fold away screen or just make a dash mould. Problem is my radio slot right at the top of the dash and there isnt really any other place to mount it, meaning its always gonna be right on display. If it was fold away i would use the crappy radio facia trick to put theifs off

    Has anybody from the UK had people breaking in to try get their screens or do most theives just leave it as it looks too fixed in.


    Thanks

    If its visible and they get the opportunity, Im sure theyd try. Security is a must... Tinted windows are a start, an alarm helps tenfold. At the very least tint the windows well and get a sticker pretending you have an alarm.

        I've built a removable surround, so the screen will come out with me, leaving a screen sized socket in the dask with **** THE **** OFF written in it in blood.

        Also, i'm alarming it (again)

          Ive installed a pretty decent alarm, put your hand in the car and it sets it off, also got a pager so i can go help them put my things back in

          I think im gonna make my screen removable just to be on the safe side.

          Im suprised catlins stuff was stolen when nothing was on display

              is that a Falcon Predator EVO4? I'm thinking of getting one, and having it professionally installed*

              If so, is it any good?

              1 - if i do it myself, it'll probably go off every couple of minutes!
              2 - anyone know\reccomend someone who'll travel to either Peterborough or Scarborough (UK) to fit it properly?

                One problem with tinting in the UK is that only the rear windows are allowed to be tinted greater than 30%. I should imagine though that if the screen is well moulded in, the hoodies won't bother and twok your polo's and spare change from the glovebox instead.

                  Its not that bad

                  Having it covered up and hidden is best i think
