    See, this is exactly what i have being trying to tell ppl NOT to do. DO NOT build ur setup into ur car. U will want something that is portable and easy to take in/out at anytime.
    And i seem to recall tell u jose not to build ur setup into the car......

    Im always in/out, the reason they cant steal my pc is cause its bolted to the sub box which is too big for 2 men to lift let alone take around.

    my 4" is hidden
    so is my keyboard/mouse/sensors..

    what more can you ask?

    The only reason they broke in is because my 40x4 looks like a flash head unit =[

    I would have to disagree with Jose.
    Car alarms arn't worth the money u pay for them. I have a $600 alarm / imobiliser etc installed in my car.

    I have had it broken in to, and my $700+ pioneer headunit ripped out (with no face on it) in the middle of my Uni car park (100+ cars) in broard daylight. and the alarm didn't scare them off at all.

    Just my experience with caralarms and theives

    jose what u need to realize is that THEY will not steal ur setup cuz it is not manufactured by a company that is well know like the aiwa or what ever (not that i care about those company) and second of all, if they steal it, they can not sell it to anyone cuz they don't understand what it is or even how to use it. And if word gets out they u can find out who stole or what not.

    That is my take on this mp3 things....ppl just that understand what it is or how it works. We are safe for now.

    jose,

    Like everyone else is saying the only reason the guy didnt get **** is cause you didnt have a head unit. once he proubly realized that the lcd wasnt a unit he left cause he proubly thought you didnt have a system. Basically if you had a stereo in the car it would have been gone. Why bother withan alarm when you can just spend the money on insurence... you need it any way cause look how much damage is in your car. So if they do break the window big deal if they steal anything cause you can get a new one.

    Angry

    alarm and imobiliser is mainly to stop the car going walkabouts, security makes me feel good, insurance in UK is stupid like $3000 for good cover.

    More than the car is worth, and I have a 12" sub + 5 1/4's, i guess its cause its all well hidden..

    Stealth is the main feature.

    I wouldnt mind if some1 brakes into it, id be ****ed if I never saw it again.

    and yes, windows are easy to replace. Fortunatly the thiefs didnt think to look in the boot..

    Next time this happens abcd will have coded the security features and hopefully I should get osme pics of the thiefs and be sms when my alarm goes off..

    if all goes to plan anyway :P

    Cool

    just to tell everyone whats going on with Oacar, I picked up a 10" screen w/ controller for 60$ so thats in place of 4" atm, its only 1MB @ 256 but its fine for music n ****.

    Also first showing went good at Donny, I was still beta testing then but people were impressed.

    One thing I noticed was my bad battery life, stood me at about 40 minutes with:
    gps, cd drive, 2x hd, pc, 2amps, invertor, nic, controller card, sound card, mouse/keyboard + char lcd all being powered!

    Thats the news on the ICE, now for the bodywork + engine

    Basically I had exhaust system pretty much redone, new downpipe cause it was cracked and new back box, got a janspeed one for 30, total was like less than 100$ :P

    Been asked to show again on June 6th @ PGAC which is a peugeot only car show! Thats just for my bodywork! Wait until I whip mi ice out then.

    *****es WILL COME RUNNING!
