This is not good re security. I really didn't know it as that easy !dicknose said:They got the XT part right in the body.
Also they mentioned the dodgy security, which I think is very poor but it seems to pass all these wonderful 5 star security ratings. The bloody central locking button is easily reached from the top of frameless doors???
That's only for getting 'into' the car. They would have had a much harder time getting around the imobiliser.Candy said:- knew it was gong to be stolen.

Rex first, any commodore second, falcon third. The Forester is probably below 10th on the list. ;-)1_hung_low said:The foz is a lot lower key than other subarus in the range (except for Dicknose's which has a bonnet scoop that could swallow an albatross whole without even clipping its wings). Park a foz and wrx 2 side by side in a street in Woolloomooloo and I guarantee your run-of-the-mill teenage junkie will go the rex first and then the forester (probably only 2 minutes later though )
Anyone prepared to trailer a vehicle is not going to be stopped by anything short of a trunk monkey with a shotgun. :-( Datadots do tend to discourage this sort though.Candy said:However, the immobiliser only stops it being driven, not trailered.
Actually, I'd rather they were in (and out) without damaging anything. It's just as easy (and quicker) for them to smash a window.As you say, any car is "easy" to break into. I just assumed that Subaru would have thought a little about placement of the locks given the older models and current clmate.
Agreed on that. That's why I don't have an alarm. Since Australia legislated that imobilisers were compulsary in new cars (and that they met a certian standard) you simply don't hear of a lot of 'newer' cars being driven away.As for alarms - pointless. People generally ignore them from what I have seen and thieves are usually in and out before it helps any.

The Falcons in particular were doing a roaring trade in thefts of the premium sound system for a while. Break one window, pop the trunk, undo a few screws, and your away to the local pub with a couple of amplifiers.
Just dance like your sig - that will drive the thieves away!1_hung_low said:yeah, the Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel
Apologies about my bitterness about this suburb. It just seems that I have a 50% strike rate every time I park in this area, and guess what, I am heading there this afternoon for a few beers with mates, hence I am nervous AGAIN.

While I know thats in jest, it is actually illegal.Candy said:Easy - leave the windows down and the car unlocked
