in order to steal the headlights, it requires the hood be opened and the sidemarkers and radiator shroud removed. If they can get the hood open and remove all the parts, then there's really nothing else you could do to secure them.

yeah what El Presidente said. Don't worry about it gettin stolen if I had the time to do all that why would I just go after the headlights? Anyhow if you do get them all you got to worry about is the DAMM rocks/flying debris frow other cars/trucks. I had my angeleyes etc. for only like a week and its already CRACKED!!!! Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! No I'm rolling around with a blind/retared bimma....hehehehehehe B) ghead

Only lights that can pop out is your fog and only way they can take your lights is "Brake your self fool" with a gun point. Flatbush right? I feel your pain bro.
I live in Queens I got my front M3 bumper taken 5 blocks away from a police PCT
broad day light now that's fucked up!!!
