Grrr! Dam Thieves!

Went to see lord of the rings on sunday. Took the face off my CD player and the remote and put it in the cenre console compartment. Come back fom watchn the movie. The rear right 1/4 window is smashed and the face for the cd player is gone......but the actual cd player still there..... Crossovers for my 4 day old splits are gone aswell.....but the tweeters are still there. Remote is still there. Case for the CD face is still there. Zoo York hat and like $6 in change gone.

Luckily, all my cd's were at my house that day and not in the car. As I was making backups incase something like this happened.

I conclude it was kids with nothing better to do. Probably saw the hat, smashed in to get that. Cause there was nothing else visible worth stealing (is a hat worth stealing?). And a CD player face and crossovers are useless with out the rest of the gear, so they obviously didnt know what they were doing.

They tried to get into the boot aswell. Cause my seat covers were half ripped off.... but I have Gas. ahaha so they didnt get in there by the look of it. They could have just pressed the button....

So yeh pissed off, but RAC have been real good. Replaced my window by 11:30 on the Monday, and gave me $750 for new stereo gear.

So I'm gonna upgrade from my clarion dxz435 to the dxz745mp. and i don't know what to do about the crossovers... can you buy them separately or do u have to buy a whole new set of splits??


But anyway to hell with punks like this who rip off stuff all because they are too lazy to go work for anything.

Mikey.

Re: Grrr! Dam Thieves!

Whoa, just got an email back from pioneer $164.80 + $7.80 P and H for the crossovers for my splits.

Might just get a new set of clarion ones to go with my clarion head unit and clarion rears.

Is it possible/worthwhile hooking up the old tweeters to the new clarion splits and run 2 sets of tweeters?


Cheers.
Mikey.

Hrrrm, that sucks balls :(

It's really not fair that, because you actually want to spend some money on your car, and give a **** about it, some prick feels it quite suiting to break in and **** it all up for you...

Re: Grrr! Dam Thieves!

ive had my dvds, cds, head unit/remote (in door map pockets), basket ball and gurnsey/shorts, male perfume, gel, school bag, cousins shirt, and $25 in change (all change collected from maccas everyday) stolen in one hit, ended up with a broken rear window too. taught me to never think it wont happen to me!!! it happend in broad day light at a shopping centre... any one who lives in adelaide dont go to sefton park shopping centre and leave anything in your car, there aint a single camera in the car park and i know the security guard and he dont give a shit!!!!! they left my back speakers which werent even bolted in... there was an upside!!!

my friend wasnt so lucky either, her mx-6 turbo got broken into, it had an alarm, because they couldnt steal the car the cut ever single wire they could find, hack sawed the momo steering wheel, cut her interior with a knife, pissed all over the car including inside of it, stole her blow off valve, boost guage, turbo timer, stereo with out the face, speakers, kicked and baseball batted every panel in and broke every light out side, all in half an hour, and this had an alarm she was pissed when she woke up, it ended up being a write off so her b/f (drag races an rx3 and r100 both coupes) is still building her a mazda rx3 coupe (3.5yrs so far and not finished) and fixed up a lancer as a daily driver for her!

sorry to hear, hate theiving bastards, they should all die in hell, unfortunatly there aint anything any one can do. i dont see why you cant run two sets of tweeters, ill ask my friend if his got two sets of cross overs in his beamer, his got two sets of alpine tweeters in there.

Re: Grrr! Dam Thieves!

a quick resolution,and lets hope karma gets this young *BEEPS* back soon.
i always fear break in's especially with my car,but you never know when your time comes(for a break in)just gotta hope it aint your turn by some petty low life scum..

glad you got a quick resolution(car fixed and $$ for stolen parts).

Re: Grrr! Dam Thieves!

good to see RAC have been so good; nothing worse than getting ripped off & then being dicked around by your insurance company
