Well, had my car broken into yesterday

good thing is they were scared off before they got in, broke the window though and the car is at vw staying out of the rain and is costing me 300 bones.

Dude! that sucks. At least they didn't get off with anything, except you having to get a new window. When my nissan got broken into, the retards couldnt figure out how to get the deck out of the dash, so they left it half ipped out and just took the faceplate. Do yo know how hard it is to convince the stereo manufacturer that you have a deck, and that someone stole the faceplate???

damn.. sorry to hear about the break in... i have it happen to me 3 times allready. but that was with my 92 golf. hopefully never in my 96. yea the first time my golf was broken into they picked the lock and stole all the stereo stuff, then the second time i was at work and they threw a brick thru my side window to get all my stuff... i no how it feels, its pretty shitty but theres nothin u can really do about it b/c theres always gonna be people jeoulous of your car and there's always gonna be thieves that are broke asses and cant afford the stuff in the first place...

I had already 2 brake ins into my car. But not into my Jetta. (Thank God).

Ever since then. I am not putting money into Car Audio.

Happened to me last summer. Buggers took my stereo but really pissed me off is that they took my golf clubs. It was a long three weeks before I got my new golf clubs!

I had a black car with 5% tint on it and alpine alarm system (back then it was good) -- the car got hit by the thieves twice... So you were sayin' ?

The moral of the story? If they want it they will get it.

I dont think it really matters what you have on your car, if they want something, they will pretty much do anything to get it. there will always be stupid people out there. I have never experienced a break in, and I am very thankful.-I just hope nothing happens. sorry to hear about the broken window whiteboy

Yeah I never understand how they take the shit...my friend's jetta got broken into and they took his alpine head...now we spent about 3 hours installing this thing, I could've sworn it would be IMPOSSIBLE to get out of there, even if you wanted to. Guess I was wrong...

My strategy is to drive a rusty 1987 Fox four door. Even so, I had a ratchet set, discman and jacket stolen from it. There is no defense against theivery. I think in many cases, alarms are a waste of money.

Haha, reminds me of an old SNL sketch with Phil Hartman. It was a comercial that was for a new car. It looked like a HUGE P.O.S. on the outside, but had the interior of a Benz. It was great, don't remember what it was called though.

It was called the camilian(sp). When you armed the alarm, the front dropped like the axle broke!! Very funny!!
