    Default A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012

    Salams!

    A friend of mine hooked me up from the street few days back and wanted me to go along with him to his place, even if just for 10 minutes. Since I was busy at that moment, I had to ask him about the urgency for this, but he simply told me plz come along, I know even you have had a car stolen, so this would probably help you a bit for your next car?!!! Course I followed, Lolz!

    A few minutes later when we reached his venue, it appeared that he actually wanted me to check out how a bunch of suckers had tried to take away his brand new, still unregistered, only 6 hours old Corolla GLI from his porch area!

    I went inside and took these snaps, thinking that they may prove helpful to those of you who feel their cars are safe inside a covered porch!

    Plz check out, the incident happened here in Wah, just 6 hours after he had brought his car home from the showroom. Means, he parked the car at 9.pm, and got the guests in by 3.am in the morning! What an intelligence!!

    Main Gate ( 5.5 feet tall):

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391693

    Main Gate lock ( new lock rings welded):

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -1026633

    And broke: ( They didn't break the lock, just the rings it was locked into!

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391739

    And next step, the Porch gate, fully covered:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391740

    Point of lock, from outside:


    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391742

    And broke again:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391747

    The Jackpot:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391749

    Steering console, opened up:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391750

    Steering lock, Key assembly:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391751

    The suckers managed breaking their way in and out of the house unnoticed. They pushed the car out of the gate and tried hot-wiring it in the street some 80 feet away from the house.

    This is when the "man of the match", and elderly bazurk, had woken up for his morning prayer and from a window on the 2.nd floor of the house had caught sight of some people pushing away with the silver babe! He alerted his nephews on the ground floor, who -after a couple of minutes deliberation - went out to the street and found 5 cockroaches fiddling around with the car, bonnet open. They fleed and left the car behind.

    Call from tracker company was received, but only after the owners already were standing in the street. Btw, the tracking company had "observed" the car to be some 30 kms off spot! Lolz!

    The worst thing about this whole incident is that the thieves arrived to the house with a new Corolla parked, only 6 hours after it reached home from the showroom!!!!

    I have said it before, I wanna say it again, Corolla owners are up against a very vicious, well-connected network of car theft mafia, which is informed about the exit of vehicles right from the moment the new cars leave from the showrooms, probably with some "Indus Connection" involved.

    You just can't guard your Corolla enough. Better stay away from it! (I am fighting against the virus, still)!

    It requires this kind of security, 2-4-7:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391762


    Regards.

    " Take your time and deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking, and go in. "

    Conventional insurance is Haram. But one can opt for Takaful.

    there are a few steps that can be taken to avoid these thieves
    companies making the car should embed the tracker in the chesis like literally inside it.. so you cant remove it without melting the chesis.. which is practically impossible.
    punishment for stealing a car sho.uld be death sentence.. nothing less. because when you steal someones car.. you are stealing his lifes worth of savings and you should pay with your life for it. hang one or two thieves.. crime rate will automatically drop..
    seal the city.. like in islamabad.. reduces the chance of stealing a lot..
    get a security guard for your street.. if every house pays him 500.. its enough for him.. and he should be a pathan.. only pathans are brave and honest enough to do this job..
    please get your car insured.. its better to pay a lot less per year than to have your 20 lac car stolen.
    Drugs cause amnesia, and other things I can't remember

    Ayat-ul-kursi and sadqa are best trackers and locks. I would recommend to install a jet black paper on the small window which they usually break and weld a thick steel sheet inside that.

    And sharp blades should be installed there, activated to cut the hand of the thief
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Bro install a jet black paper on the small window which they usually break and weld a thick steel sheet inside that of same size and shape. A professional welder can perform this job very well after that you can paint it from inside or paste a jet black paper on it as well.

    you mean to say that there is no other way to break in the car other than that small window?
    My dear ALLAH when I loose hope, help me to remember that Your love is greater than my disappointment and Your plans for my life are better than my Dreams.

    well its a steelmate's 2 way remote
    it has lcd with remote,n if some1 opens the door,the remote vibrates n similarly if something hits the car,it will vibrate in addition to car making the noise + its range is better than other remotes

    thieves open bonnet n then disable the alarm by removing wires from battery

    @chaudhry9.. Whats the use of lcd

    This means that the thief should first open the bonnet and disable the alarm, and offcourse it will vibrate, then how does the thief break through this steelmaate alarm?
    & what happens if the remote is out of range?

    if remote is out of range then nothing will happen,that is u wont be notified
    with other remotes the car just makes sound but this remote you get notified with the vibration on remote n lcd shows if some1 opened any door or is hitting it
    how thief breaks through it,no idea,they would know better

    @atiqanasir123
    you can get this remote from market easily

    I will prefer the idea of having a security system alarm with bonnet.So when the bonnet gets open the siren will be on bcuz the thieves open the bonnet first and disable security system
