No car is 'unstealable'. Pro thieves will always find ways around even the most advanced security systems.

Have heard of a few AU XR8's being stolen in Sydney, never to be seen again. Would like to know how these bastards do it as I'd to stop mine from being a statistic. As for now factory alarm, kill switch and Club lock's gonna have to do.

My friend's AU Forte was stolen and recovered once. I won't say how, but apparently it wasn't very hard.

Quarter AU VX VT
June 02 95 102 273
March 02 109 103 329
Dec 01 92 106 313
Sep 01 82 70 296

Recovery Rate
June 02 71% 81% 63%

I think its around 50% of immobilised cars the thief had access to keys and transponder. In Sep Quarter 01 in SA 7 of the 9 VX Commodres stolen was with access by key
