Do you take it off every time you leave the car? Even if you're leaving it on your drive, or if you've only nipped into a shop?
I don't take it off everytime, but if I do, I usually just hide it somewhere in the car so no one can see it.
Surely the glovebox is the first place they will look though?
I just dump it under my seat, in a little tray!
I think everyone pretty much keepts the face in their car somewhere, Imagine the hassel of putting in its case and walking about with it in your pocket all day. By removing the face any potential theif wouldnt know if your headunit was worth stealing or not and therefore hopefully just walk away.
Well I am from east london so I am use to taking it out of the car EVERY TIME... you wont dare leave it in the car for a second in areas like that
Never. I can't be bothered.
I get insured if they steal it, so I'm really just provoking a theft. Windows are tinited so you'd have to peer through the windows to see what I had. That would look dodgy. Then we have the Cat 1 alarm that would ring their earbells for the next 4 days. I think its kind of safe.
