Trust me, its not just Porsches, in our area, also Maxima's and yes, S4's are targetted as well. Why, not because its a sh!tty area, its because the thieves know a lot of ppl in this area have $$, thus expensive cars and they are within a 30 min drive to Newark, the car and headlight theft capital of the world.......run a search on Audiworld, and you'll reead about many victems....

Main reason why the S4 is ALWAYS garaged, whereas the Passat (previously Cougar) is blocking the driveway./

Oh great, I can see it now...

Officer: *Lights*.*Siren*.*Megaphone* This is the police, pull over immediately.

Random Guy: What did I do wrong officer?

Officer: Well I see that you have a pretty blue light lighting the road effortlessly, would those be them HIDs?

Random Guy: Yessir.

Officer: AHA those don't come on 1994 honda civics!!! You stole em, you're coming with me!! MWUHAHHAA

It will happen.....give it time.

well good for all these car makers. What's so important about HIDs anyway? The headlights on older cars are good enough.

I'm thinking of getting 8300K HIDs soon and this makes me think twice...how hard really are our headlights to steal considering their only being held down by 3 screws???

someone stole ONE fog light outta my bumper the first 6 months I had the coug. Come out of the coffee shop and see the wiring and no light. That was bad enough, let alone HID headlights. :(

yeah having one foglight sucks!

I can't image how much getting your headlights stolen would suck.

I caught some guy stealing my left fog light, I was so pissed off. He was about twice my size but he still got out of there quick.

jam a big flathead screwdriver in the seam between the housing and body and dont give a **** about breaking stuff when you pry.
