Don't those decks have brains to them, so wouldn't just the screen be useless to the thief?

ya but ppl who break into cars will take anything..that looks kool
they took my moms xm radio ..which was like 40 bucks..and its useless as soon as i gave them a call and report it stolen cuz it uses a serial code on the back to activate.

You're that lazy to not take the face in the house with you :rolleyes:

You cannot take a flip out deck with you. There is NOTHING you can do.

If you make the deck hard to take by fastening it to the dash, they'll destroy EVERYTHING to get it out. Just leave it be. If you're that worried don't get a stupid fold out deck. They're just a waste of space anyways.

The best bet is really to keep a stock deck, and go with the "JBL Clean Sweap" product.

This way, you can get the aftermarket audio quality (via DSP), with the stock deck.
However, it wouldn't work if you want those flip out screens.

No one ever takes a stock deck anyway. If you remove the temptation, you're better off.

and by doing so fry the electronics in the deck.

This is why I refuse to change my stock deck right now.

I love the fact no one wants it, including me. :)

The JL Clean Sweep system is really an investment if you love cars, and audio equipment.

You can move it from car to car and keep the stock deck, but improve your audio system in a "hidden" fashion.

i have a pioneer deck....my face plate flips down to put the cd's in. at that point, i can detach the face plate. all my decks have been like that. thats one way to go....take the face plate out every time you leave the car for the night.

I have an alpine deck and I do the same thing.

the JL shit is crazy pricey. just get a 60$ deck that play's mp3's.

my deck which i stole off milan is 23109432X better than stock.

In a E36 or E30, aftermarket decks fit in quite nicely. It's the same size.

An E46 or newer BMWs, plus most new cars, they have odd shaped stereo's. I don't think I've ever seen a dash kit for these cars that looks good with an aftermarket deck.

For this reason, the JL Clean Sweep is the way to go.

If you make it theft-proof or almost permanent, expect to pay even more for dash components when the thief uses a hammer and pry bar.
