    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. "

    i dont think that would be effective
    cox once bonnet is opened even if it makes noise,they'll quickly remove the wires
    whenever i sit in car,most of the times it makes noise because of auto lock option n no1 around u or in market really cares

    But atleast if it is parked at home then it will be somewhat effective

    in that case my steel mate 2 way remote is effective because it vibrates if something hits the body
    + when u press lock on it,screen becomes green n it shows car is locked but this happens only when car is in range so if u get this sign,you know your car is parked,i do this in market as well to check car is safely parked n not gone

    According to me One of the Best Solutions for in Home Theft of Car I came up, Might You Buddies like it:


    1.Also INSTALL an ALARM Switch which turns on when the BONNET is Opened, Why? Mostly the First step of thief is to Cut off the Power wires of the Battery, to diffuse Alarm & the Movement Sensors(Like When some one Hits your Car Body Hardly,it turns on, Atleast in my car). Im pretty much sure that the alarm should turn on when the Back Window was Smashed or when the door is opened, why it didn't worked? Battery Power Diffused.

    2.Try to purchase a different sounded Loud Horn, & attach it with Security System. Because whenever we hear the Typical Sounded Security Alarm we can thought its some one else's car not ours.
    Otherwise it totally depends on your Luck! May ALLAH ALMIGHTY save us all!! AAMEEN

    Chose big font For helping my Friends. not for extra Fame Attention.

    Well awais bhai ! At least by Making one Loud Noise when its parked at home, will alert the Sleepy Heads!!

    Sometimes it happens when cat jumps on to the car & alarm activates, or when sencors feel any other Jerk . But its for some seconds.But when someone opens the door then it wont stop unless the Button on remote is pressed. For disconnecting the wires the Clippers should be of Best Quality & Firmly Attached,at least it will take some more time. & last but not least, may be the thief isn't expecting it.

    some1 told me that he did some alterations to his swift,which was that he made a chor switch,i dont remember the details,but it was like which was directly from battery or something extended till inside the car at which ever place u want,n until u switch that on,no matter they direct the wires or whatever they cant start the car,but i couldnt understand how to explain it to the electrician

    so far em using steelmate 2 way lock
    steering lock
    gear lock ( with handbrake)
    + the most effective thing which is to keep some1 in car always whenever parked outside anywhere

I called up my father and we tried to talk it out with that ***** Lady, but she was reluctant to talk or even negotiate as she said her husband was out of pindi, when he returns then we can sort it out. Our badluck was that my father didn't call the police as he trusted her words as she was the daughter of HAMID GUL (ex DG ISI). now cutting the story short, they sent the car somewhere else, the car was sent the very next day it was spotted and the case is still going on in the court.

    the sad part is that our beloved police is afraid to even ask them as she is the daughter of a general. Everything we tried is in vain. Ye tou halat hai hamaray mulk k hafizon ki..

    Is the old shape of corolla (2009-2011) also being targetted my car thief/lifter/snatchers??.

    as i thought that maybe the car thieves are only looking for new models or atleast it shouldnt be more than 2yeras old, otherwise it is not feasible for them to snatch and then try to cross the borders of karachi or Pakistan

    Word is the 'theives' sell these corollas for 1.5lac a piece in Peshawar! Insurance companies these days are willing to pay the thieves the same amount for not stealing insured cars as otherwise they pay the customer a full 15 to 20lac
