Angry WTF!? Why me!???

I was at the coldwell banker building in North York and when I came out to my car (8:30pm) I found my foglights missing, alarm going off and hand prints all over my car!!! Someone tried to get into my car (marks on passanger and driver side doors) but couldn't so decided to take my foglights! Of all the places in the world, a business complex! My luck!
Is there a way to secure the foglights from being taken so easily? hhmm..maybe I should put some wires in the back that attach to the bumper that could hold on to it?
Rant over....

I wouldn't do that if I were you. They will distroy the air dam to get at them. Just like how BMW designed the hood/trunk badges.....easy to steal so they won't damage the body.

Sitting here in my office looking out side at my car without foglights...I just noticed that the mesh for my bumper is also missing!
This is shit! One spends all this moneyand time to baby his/her car and then some SOB comes along and decides to go shopping at your expense. What the hell is the point...even the damn f*cking insurance companies open your legs and do as they wish!
Now I wish we were allowed to carry guns!
