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.
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.

glad you got a quick resolution(car fixed and $$ for stolen parts).
cars are a lethal weapon,your not invinsible when you get into one,and no matter how much skill you think you have,you are never in control you are always on the edge of death it may not happen today but if you keep driving like you do,you too will end up dead!
