Holy man, that is SO not freaken right. I feel soooo sorry for you man. Honestly, my heart just stopped when I first saw the after pictures.


I am sure that you had locking lug nuts on those wheels right? But of course they must of had the key, either from your glove box, or they had it themselves. I am just speechless, I'll pray that the cops find the a-holes and get your stuff back. You must of had an aftermarket deck in there huh?

For future times. Check this tint out... security tint Security tint I've had that installed on my Caddy, and the person who installed it was telling me that the tint is at least 3 or 4 times thicker than normal tint.

I pray to God for you during this horrid times.

I never carry the key. My custom rims have all locking wheel nuts and the tolerance you can fit a puller on it.

eh enjoy the insurance and welcome to Orlando.

that sucks man, sorry to see this. where was it parked when it happened? was it overnight when it happened?
we have had a few cars broken into in my neighbourhood lately so ive been parking in our garage that has a alarm on both doors.
i guess the factory caddy alarm didnt go off for any of that....
and with the new chordless impact guns getting better they prob had the wheels off within 5 min.

well at least u r ok. Its tough to look on the bright side but in the end it is just a car and whats most important is the scumbags didnt hurt you. A friend of mine almost got killed by some "gangstas" trying trob his car.

Well hope all is well and everything works out in the end. Something needs to be done about htese kinds of people. I work at a mall and go to college is a city that while not being horrible it isnt great. Im from the suburbs/country so i wasnt really used to this stuff but now i am. I see this everyday and every time its the same thing. Windows broken, gps/head unit gone and something else. How do they get away with this or are people just stupid walking by and are thinking to themselves at least its not mine.

Thats my little rant but i hope its work out

It seems like they knew what they were doing. It looks like they pulled the radio out without damage from the pics. So look for another CTS in town and check the head unit. Maybe you'll find him.

good call watch Ebay and Craigslist. Also offer a reward at the GM dealers since the the radio needs to be programed with a tech 2 scanner

Are you sure the alarm didn't go off??? What did the police say, how did they find out? The reason why I'm asking about the alarm not going off is because by law, the alarm can only sound for 90 seconds or less. Some areas are 60 seconds. With a factory alarm, there isn't really much of away to find out. However, with an aftermarket like Viper. The chirp will chirp 3 times when you press the unlock button on the remote the first time. To let you know that the alarm had gone off since you last locked it.

That's just my theory.

You should look at the two way remote system. Meaning if you are with in range of your car. The remote will go off, vibrate and or beep. I like them alot, especially if I wonder if I locked the doors. Just look at the remote and you can tell by the pad lock symbol.

Also, did you check out the link from my first reponce? It was to a tint product that I found on eBay. Where the tint is like 3 or 4 times thicker than normal tint. If you watch the videos you will see how hard it is to break through the tint. Just a suggestion.
