Default Well...It happened again

Went out to go to work today and someone broke into my car...again. Only this time they broke out the small back passenger side window. Get to go into to see an insurance adjuster tomorrow morning, should have pics tomorrow.

That is absolutely horrible. Did the cameras catch this? I know booby traps are illegal, but you should probably consider lacing the head units with poison. Also, I think people rob your car because you work at Fry'* Electronics. I'm impressed that you still have your speakers.

Hmm... I've had to replace a couple and never found it to be THAT hard.

I wouldn't go through the insurance company. Pick up a good one from the scrap yard for about $20 and install it yourself. Save the deductible money.

Mini meet! I know of a couple Bonnevilles at a dirt cheap junkyard that wouldn't care to have their windows removed.

Take a couple more for future breaking ins.

it happened at my house, not at work. And my deductible is only 50 bucks and the head unit is worth 150, i would rather pay 50 than 150 + the window

Good point. I figured you should have your head unit insured!
