this depends a lot on what you want to protect... if you're worried about car theft get the club and a car alarm and possibly a way to lock the tires etc.... Also, removalble faceplate stereo's or just a stock stereo is usually safe... if you drive through your neghiborhood with loud bass you are basically posting a sign that says "I've got cool stuff to steal!" so basically what is the most important thing to protect?

1998 or newer accords have immobilizder. This will prevent about 99% of the theives from stealing your car. It can still be towed though or if some theives have access to Honda's ECM software they can override the immobilizer (that takes time) and steal it

Using after market stereos = more likely to have car broken into and stuff forcefully ripped out

I'm thinking of having vinyl stickers made for my gas tank that says, "It's got a lock!"

At $3.00, or more, gas is the next thing to get ripped, or sucked out of your car.

I went and got gas the other day and a lady asks me to help her get her gas cap door open.

I look at it, and the first thing I think is, "Looks like someone tried to pry the door open."

I push on the front side so it isn't sticking out, and tell her to push/pull the button/lever to open it, and it opens.

I take a closer look at the whole thing, and sure enough, someone tried to pry it open and steal the gas!

Not sure how many people here would remember the gas shortages of the 70's, but the lockable gas cap became quite vogue...
