GTR R35 Theft !

Knowing that scum bags can look out for these cars with the intention of stealing our pride and joys, and having my tracker and alarms in place etc etc what can I unplug under the bonnet to make it impossible to start ?, I used to unplug the coil pack on a car I used to park in london but dont know where to start with the GTR, is there a plug i can unplug that will render the car unstartable ? if so where is it ?, picture would be good.

thanks all

jensen gtr

If you're going to go to all the trouble of opening the bonnet and unplugging stuff - then why not just do a better job of hiding/securing the key?

Buy a CoBB (assuming you've not already got one).

Anti-Theft map that you could switch to (via Cruise Control buttons) as you park up for the night. Your motor is going nowhere until the following morning when you switch back via the CoBB.

Just put this on mine, MY11.

Or buy a big dog and an even bigger gun.

Not sure i could do that as my mapping uses the cruise buttons to set the boost, (lichfield stage 1).

Was thinking of a driveway intruder alert system or a "insured by the mob" bumper sticker !!

V difficult to nick without the keys (unless hoisted onto a truck! which alarm / tracker can help with). How much effort have you put in to make sure no-one can get your keys?

Strong safe is a minimum IMO (and experience as having had my house broken into specifically (and only) to nick the keys and cars)

I was considering a telescopic driveway bollard (Mook's got one I think) but I think it would be too difficult to get all my family to put it up at all hours of the night when they get in or go out!

Hiding the keys is fine until they break in for the keys and point a gun or wave a baseball bat at your wife and kids.

If the cars parked in front of your house, buy a porch light that comes on when movement is detected.

Nothing suggested thus far helps you in that situation.

If someone is determined to steal your car to the extent of threatening you or your family, then concede........ it's only a lump of metal, very easily replaced!

True, but luckily Robbery of a household, rather than burglary (Otherwise known as 'Creeping'/'Drummin') is rather uncommon. Most of these little scum bags are just that and go for the easy hit. So sleep tight and hide those keys.

Best thing to do is ensure you have double locked your front door from the inside. Very easy for the thieving gits to check it hasn't been and even easier to 'pop' it open!!!

Keep those GTR's safe guys.

Do what I have done, get an anti hijack device fitted

Then if a scum bag breaks into your house and say give me the keys, you oblige and then smelly evil scum the drive the car away only for it to konk out ˝ a mile down the road!!

Hey you don't know what is wrong with as you were planning on taking it to the garage to have it looked at!!

That way my friends, you have complied with the scum, they are away from you, your house and family, you should have dialled 999, and odds on you will get your car back in one piece and no one will be injured and as a bonus - the law may have even tuned up and hand cuffed the scum to the lamppost where you can kick 10 bales of shit out of the f*ckers.

OK, maybe the last bit won't happen, but I think you have a good chance of the rest !!!

If they run away after half a mile and leave the car....is it recorded on HPI as stolen recovered....if so......8k off sale price?

I'd rather they had it, trashed it, exported it.....etc then all i lose is my NCD. Its the reason I don't like the idea of a tracker....let then have it and I get a new one that I can rely on.

Yes.., you of course can't guarantee that you won't get the car back following the theft can you even without a tracker, ie not a total loss... So reliance on GAP perhaps and/or hoping it stays missing for the 6 weeks or so needed to become insurance property may be a little optimistic.

Over the years I've read and contributed to many a tracker "yes" or "No" thread and I'd say that 50% of people were against them because "if I got it back, it wouldn't be the same - thrashed and violated not to think its now on HPI".

I've only had one car nicked in the past (15 years ago) - Sierra Cosworth and when i got it back.....whilst drivable, i was so please they wrote it off....clutch burnt out and paintword scribed with tags, wheel baring gone....imagine if they put me back on the road with it....what else would go wrong with it.....

sorry, just IMO

See my thread re MH for details.
Car is classified as Category x - i am led to believe that it doesn't show up on HPI (i'm not so sure)

In the "industry" they have quoted no loss in value which i am very sceptical about !

If the car is recovered would the GAP insurance cover you for perceived loss in value that is attributed to the Cat x classification ? even though car is recovered back to owner ?

A friend of mine woke to hear 2 lads with a screwdriver attempting to open the drivers door of his mint escort cossie, his driveway had a large wall on either side, he had a friend staying with him that night so they crept out and caught them, after the dust settled this was what he said to the police when he called them "Hi police, I have just woken up and found two lads who have fallen off my wall and hurt themselves, you better send an ambulance",

excellent !!!

Quality story Jensen !!
If you hide your keys, that is plain dumb. Let them have the bloody car if they want it,,,,,why risk them walking itno your bedroom, as they did with my bro-in-law, they will still get the keys and probably stab you in the process....... and if you have children then hiding your keys is downright irresponsible in my view. I always make a point of ensuring mine are left downstairs in the kitchen before I go to bed, (out of sight but easy to find). As Steve says, each to their own but "over-securing" your car is not a good idea !
Oh and can someone arrange for mine to be nicked so I can trade up to a Nav equipped car please....

Radical idea indeed, maybe should leave all valuables, wife's rings, Ipads etc easily accessible too just in case eh . Surely better to protect your house, actually turn the alarm zone on, deadbolt doors and windows etc and not make it easier for opportunistic thieves... certainly the advice the cops gave me after I was burgled..for the keys that were in the kitchen.
Well secured house, car, with visible security is the best deterrent in the first instance isn't it?

You're right as far as determined criminal element though in some respect and that applies probably to any demanding valuables with menace, and the point about kids is thought provoking, although both my lads are over 6 foot and join me being suitably tooled up under our beds..
Different strokes for different folks., point taken.
