Angry My F'in car got broken into!!!!!!!

Yes ladies and gentlemen.....One week after I installed a $500 two way pager alarm system into it. The bitch of the whole thiing was that the 2 way pager never went off and I was only about 100 feet away from my car in my office.

Sony CDA -6200 GONE!!!!!!!!
400 watt Clarion amp Gone!!!!!!!!
two twelve inch kicker comps....gone!!!!!!!!!
My three Clarion 7 inch LCD's.....GONE!!!!!!
PS2....GONE!!!!!!!!!
4x150 Alpine 6 inch and 6x9 inch speakers....GONE!!!!!

I had the AST-4500 alarm system in the thing which boasts that it will notify you up to 1/4 mile away............and I WAS 100 FEET AWAY!!!!!!!!

I called AST....and they stated that they have no guarentee and that I must have not alarmed the system.......as basically told me to piss off. FUCK you assholes!!!!!!!!!

$3300 Gone..............

God, I am going to get so drunk tonight!!!!!!!!



Pass the word around........

DON'T BUY AN AST ALARM!!!!!!!!!!!!

That really really sucks...

The exact reason I refuse to add aftermarket stereo stuff to my car (though I am always tempted...but stories like this make me remember)...had it happen to me twice...the first time they left my alarm sitting on the hood of my car...the second time they just cut the negative ground on my battery. Not going to be a third time...

Install places have been known to take notes. Impossible to prove.

Insurance?

I agree with above, here in Cedar Rapids a man was just arrested who used to work at the Ultimate Electronics install shop. Apparently he would "scope out" a car while installing a system and then somehow break into them because he knew the codes or whatever and re-programed a simular transmitter or something. Its very strange, I would check into it. It sounds very strange that your car would be broken into so fast after you putting an alarm system into it.

Look at the bright side though, some friends from high school once tried to break into a teachers 1999 chrome vic and tried to jack the radio, they couldnt get it out, so they smashed every piece of glass and headlight. They also trashed the car, seats and everything...but they didnt get the radio out.

They were later caught BTW.

I'd watch ebay for some of your stuff. Especially if a seller turns out to be selling exactly what you are missing.

My insurance is taking care of it except for the $500 deductable which I am going after AST for. I am normally an honest hardworking guy that doesn't go after people but these guys are going to see the back of my hand!!!!!!

Good job [email protected] Why the F*** should you buy their product if it isn't going to work when you need it to? 100 feet away?

quarter of a mile/ how many feet is that.. what type of office do you have.. underground? high up, deep in the building where a signal can't get in? I know for damned sure that I always arm mine. No matter what.

Oh, that's also why I tinted the windows and never, ever leave anything that isn't stock in view inside the car. It's stock, and that's it, as far as any thief knows. With a missing face plate, so they dont even know if it's a quality radio. No fake leds, Just my alarm one. Not worth it for them.
