Same for me. I've read about people stealing catalytic converters but I don't know anyone that it has actually happened too. (Or even someone that has 2nd or 3rd hand knowledge of it happening)

Portland, OR is the 5th city / state I've lived in the past 20 years. In my adult life I've had something stolen twice - both involving cars.

When I was 18 and living in Michigan someone broke a window in my car and pried out the factory AM / FM radio (not even cassette). A huge amount of damage for a radio that might sell for $5

Last year we had a backpack stolen out of a friend truck while we ate at a restaurant in Portland, OR on the way back from a hiking trip. Someone smashed the window and took the backpack at 2 in the afternoon on a busy street.

Someone broke into my first car and stole the $60 eBay CD player that didn't remember my radio presets once I turned off the car, didn't have a seek function, and the CD player skipped when I hit each slight bump in the road.

I think they stole my speakers, too.

I just laughed and drove the car without a stereo.

I guess that's another benefit of driving a car with the cat right at the exhaust manifold - too hard to just lay down on the ground and saw it off.


And another good reason to lower the ride height!

PowerShi$% automated double clutch version, I'm guessing.

I warned a good friend against getting one, but he didn't listen to me. So far, so good, touch wood. Fortunately he drives very little.

Dad had the double-plus-good version in his SFE. Isn't it rated better?

The last time that I shoveled the driveway I thought about those silly people with airbag suspensions, but imagine if you lowered your vehicle all of the way before a snowstorm. Then you wouldn't shove snow underneath!

What if you always parked your vehicle on the ground and someone drove by looking for cats to steal?

Not that one!

I'm not a cat

I'm not afraid of cat theft.
