    My car has been parked up since yesterday morning, and today I went out at about 6pm and I noticed that the star was all bent and almost flat against the bonnet :eek:

    Luckily, it had just been pushed out of position, I just had to adjust it back into place. It definitely looks like someone had tried to rip it off though, I guess they got disturbed.

    The star was missing when I bought the car, so I got a new one. This was all of 3 months ago, and someone's already tried to nick it! :crazy:

    It's disappointing to me that people do this kind of thing, why can't they leave it alone?

    As always - sorry to hear this!!

    They do it because they know, even if you caught them - you couldn't touch them, And the courts wouldn't waste their time.

    When I was a lad :)rolleyes: ), If a bloke found kids touching his car, he would kick the sh** out of them!!! I'm sure this was a deterant.:D

    A welcome return to common sense. I'd like to think if I found someone doing that to my car I'd do the same, but with knife crime etc I might not have the guts too.

    Someone more technical can surely give us a DIY to hook the star upto a high current lecy supply.

    lol, out of curiosity could it be wired up to the battery to give a kind of 'electric fence' 12v shock?

    an electric fence is similar to an ignition system which converts the 12v to 1000's but with a very low current so it shocks but doesnt injure. As kids we used to deliberatley hold an electric fence which was used to contain some pigs. It took a bit of bravado to grab the wires but once connected it was quite a high. Wouldn't dare do it now tho, got more sense [ I think ]
