Yes, in Dell's parking lot ( I am selling Dell computers again this summer) this afternoon during a rainstorm at 5pm I was running to my car. I noticed the drivers window was down, I said to myself:

"I dont remember leaving the window down....hmmm!"

I ran around the car to the passenger door and laid my books on the passenger seat when I saw the carnage.

the words "Oh shit" rumbled out of my mouth at about the same time my stomach tightened and felt queezy.

The center console is a mess, the drivers side window was laying perfectly beside the drivers door complete ripped out in ONE PIECE ( the window tint kept it together).

The miraculous thing was that NOTHING WAS STOLEN. But they evidentally tried to take the radio. Although I had another $1000 in parts inside the car....they didnt even take $.25 for their efforts out of the coin box LMAO

All I have to say is that I am lucky, I am buying comprehensive ( i have liability only right now) and getting a kick butt car alarm with wireless warning ( cell phone alert ).

Guys, just be careful, thieves are everywhere. I dont wish this even on ANYONE. Its just horrible knowing that your property has been compromised.

The good thing is that my friend has a brand spanking new drivers side window laying at his house and I should be able to find a center console for cheap.

This is truly heartbreaking knowing how idiots out there do stupid crap like this!
Just be thankful ur whole car wasn't stolen.
Yah best to get a pager alarm AND put a auto-lock on.
I noticed some thieves are so ruthless they dont' give a f*ck if the alarm is goin off,
so yah use the auto-lock and make them work harder to try and take ur car!
Good luck and hope it doesn't happen again!
GOD SPEED!

All this stealing and shit i hear about, even a guy i work with got his deck stolen.

I'm riviting my Deck in place :bowdown: , to hell with screws

In fact, I have NEVER read of anyone Riviting a system in place instead of screws, seems like an obvious option to me if your worried. Dosnt help with them ripping your shit apart, but they likley wouldnt have a Drill handy so, thats what I'm doing. Some Big, Fatass Metal Rivits.

Dude, that experience is eerily familiar to my own. I thought the exact same thing about my windows. I hope you either find some good "core" windows or find a good shop, cause I got FUCKED with my replacements. They didn't seal right at all and leaked water like crazy. I also had glass in places you wouldn't expect... like DEEP inside the heater ducts, as it would occasionally spray into my eyes as I drove in the winter... on snow... in a college town.

Good luck with the fixing.

BTW almsost forgot to add on insurance

for all you guys with liabilty only, think long and hard about just having that coverage. If you get into an accident and it was found to be your fault. GUess what, you insurance might pay only the liability limit of 10k or whatever it is but with a lawyer, guess who assets they are going after when the 10k doesn't cover but 4 days at the hospital.

If you guessed the owner of the vehicle you are right! :) Lose you Supra and any other asset that is liquid assets (saving, checking, income) etc.

How do I know this? Because I am the guy with the lawyer right now going after a liable party ;)

kinda off topic..

my homie, has a 86 toyota pu, and a 2006 trx 450r, he loaded his quad into his truck before work, so he could go riding in the morning. he was closing the night this happened,

some one broke into his ride, more then likely had a key, and had the ignition turned on, stereo on, and the security of the place he works came up on the crook and managed to scare him away....

the only thing that saved his truck and quad, were the fact he got a started kill installed w/ the alarm, so if the alarm is armed you cant start his rig..

no windows where broken, and no evidence of forced entry...
