Depends on your insurance company and if they take betterment. Most insurance companies will replace with like kind and quality which means you'll get the 2006 versions of what you had stolen no questions asked. Some companies WILL take into consideration customization and how long it takes to create. If it would take a shop 6 hours at $50 an hour and $50 materials to recreate your fiberglass box, you'll get $350 for your box.

Have one, the lake is 3 hours away so even if it was in range I'd be 3 hours late getting to the car.

Sorry to hear about the car, luke.

Just be glad you didn't have an antenna yet, or it would have been taken again.

you're in SASKATOON? hrm there goes my 'gangsta' theory. You know what, it was probably someone close or someone you may know or have seen before. Okay because no one in their right mind would try that unless they knew intimate details..

aka. Where you were (were not), What was in the car, and how it was put in. I'm guessing you probably even spoke to at least one of these guys recently.

And remember what I said about Karma, it'll come back around so don't worry okay? You'll be fine, and once again I'm sorry to hear about that. I'd want all these dishonest people to be caught, charged and beaten ...

You can't rip my stuff out, it's actually bolted together solid. They weren't exactly nice about getting the stuff out either, there was white chunks of the enclosure all over the hatch where they tried to get the enclosure past the amps, and there was broken pieces of wood as well.

I'm skeptical of whether they knew the car too, because anyone that's seen the car knows it has scissor doors, these guys bent the front fenders opening the doors, they didn't know they opened up.

The lot here should be secure, we have security drive through pretty frequently, our complex has over 600 appartments in it dozens of which face the lot. Very few spots are vacant meaning almost everyone in the complex works for a living. Also the ammount of modified cars in the lot suggest most of the people here would give a crap that a car alarm is blaring in the same lot as thier car. It's a simple case of "it's not my car I don't care" so nobody tried to stop it.

I don't mean to sound mean here or anything but what did you expect when you have that set up sitting in the hatch? Someone walking by can see it and easily get tempted. That is why I don't understand why people put all this money/time into a vehicle when it is most likly going to be stolen. I know it isn't YOUR fault that THOSE loosers stole it..but you have to take that into concideration when doing this stuff. If you look in my car, you see a set of JBL speakers in the rear dash and a Pioneer headunit (face removed in larger parking lots). That is it. I don't want anything sitting there that a thief might want to steal. I also know that you built it for show, but I would just suggest go with a quality system that you can hear and enjoy---systems should be heard not seen. And when I say heard, that should be only by the people in your car. Theifs also wait and see what car goes by with its speaker thumping, wait for it to park then steal like there is no tomorrow.

Theres little you can do in life without risks. So what if the hobbies that some of us have run higher risks.. should we not do the things we love to do?
