Speaking as an ex-cop (and keeping my fingers crossed for you), chances are nothing will happen. They know that you know they have your address and stuff. So they know you're on the lookout for something to happen.

Most criminals, especially thieves, are cowards. They want to avoid confrontation at all costs. Most likely they will be happy with anything of value they already have and move on the the next victim.

I am not saying you are 100% in the clear. Just stating "the norm". Remain alert for anything unusual, but don't stress yourself into an ulcer over it at this point.

My stepdad has been a claims adjuster for Farmer'* Insurance for the last 15 years, and he told me that in all of that time, with all the car keys stolen in all of his claims, that NEVER ONCE has the vehicle ever been tampered with.

Knowing this makes me feel better. But, I am going to go ahead and rekey the exterior doors, just because its not as expensive as I anticipated, and there will always be that what-if.

Im of the opinion of the rest of you. Theives especially are cowards. They see a cheap and easy way to profit in some way from others, but usually want to get away from being caught.

This site is great. Thanks everybody for your ideas and suggestions. Pics of the new car will be here soon, at any rate!

Do it all, ensure they have no way of getting in, or starting it. If they could still start it all they would need to do is break in with a window, and they'll have their own car.

How many sets of car keys were on there, and were they marked as bonneville keys? If you had two matching GM sets then that mgiht save you somewhat physically.

I know my 2000 GP had the security system from the factory and you can set it to where you must have the fob to unlock it even useing the keys will set the alarm off and not let it start. Check in your manuel to see if you have it and how to change the setting * if you do.
