Whoever wanted it REALLY wanted it- I had an Autolock Anti-theft device on it when it was stolen.

I guess no more turbo build up for me.

Thats no protection.

What alarm did you have?

Autolocks are hardened steel locks that lock the clutch/brake pedal in the "up" position so it can't be turned on or put into gear. Waaay better than a noisy alarm everybody ignores.

Whoever did it got it off and drove the car away.

Around here civics usually disappear and are found as rollers. I guess those 8 valve b8 motors are pieces of envy and desire... :ROFL:

lock the steering column with a big ass lock and its impossible to steal. only way to steal it is cut the lock with power tools which would take an hour. A person i knew did this after I told him too and his car was stolen but the dude couldn't turn the car so ran into a curb and left it. I do something a little different on my car but i cant tell anyone lol. down here a honda is stolen every day


alarms are useless really. down here there have been thieves that have stole carsand drove off while the alarm was going off

agreed with esotericimage, dude.

anything security measure by itself will eventually fail.

security must be thought in terms of layers.

if they want to steal your car, yes they will do so. but that doesn't mean you have to make it easier for them to steal it.

good luck, hope you get her safe and sound.

I feel the same way. I see so many hondas stolen and in my area any car theft is unheard of. OP, I hope you get your car back in decent shape and I hope whoever stole it gets their hands cut off.

if you only had the clutch locked you can still drive it, just put it in gear then start it and rev match to shift no need for a clutch, but a brake lock thats a different story. sorry to hear about your car and i hope you get it back, theft is one of my worst fears for my car

I take out my ecu as well. Unless you have a basemap set for my injector and what not on your own ecu you plug in you aren't going to get my car started or running halfway decent and I'll have heard you by then because of my exhaust. I also have the nrg steering wheel lock for my quick release, so you are stuck steering by the lock.
