I am not a happy man tonight!

My mate got home from work today (lodging with me and the misses for a while) and found that someone has lifted the car cover up and over the GTR, which is on my drive! to take a peak at whats underneath.

The dogs were in the lounge so I am sure they barked to let them know but its not the point.

The car battery is always off and a few other small mods that stop it moving but that aint the point.

I am now going to have to worry that some little C*** is going to have a go at removing it!!!!

I had a similar problem I have a car cover too and came back one day to find both the clips that secure undone. Made me panic a bit. Lots of people recommend CCTV as an option.

:eek: .. Put a electric wire in the border of your cover, make sure the cover border does not touch your car! .. And set up a webcam! :) haha

They know it's there, so if it's worrying you why not move the car elsewhere? Even park it and leave it in a ASDA carpark overnight or something? Atleast then it will be under CCTV...

Yer not sure what to do yet but cant really put the car else where.

Thinking I could leave the dogs on the car and that should mean it does not go anywhere.

My neighbour is in all day so will ask him to keep an eye out. Not worried about when I am in as the dogs would wake me if I was sleeping.

CCTV might be the way forward but in all honestly I dont know what they would catch= apart from 2 guys in hoodies etc lol

Parked for just over two hours under the CCTV at B&Q in Wandsworth and got a massive fine through the post...

Good luck thinking up innovative protective systems!

Yer I was thinking about a bollard in front of the car so it cant be moved. Probably the cheapest and best solution overall.

The CCTV solution is ok but the car still gets taken and probably just get a rubbish image that unless you know who it is the police wont do much with

Does make me laugh when companies try and 'fine' you for parking. Hope that one went in file 13!

Sleep in your car with a loaded shotgun, your mate can shack up with you missus to keep her "warm"
