Default what can i do to steal-proof my car? (acura rsx 02)?

i read that this thing is on the top of the hit list for stolen cars. i wanna make it steal proof and instead of investing in parts to make it faster, i would rather spend the money to make it less able to be stolen. any ideas?ignore price (but be realistic) thanks.

Find your own boot. You know the ones big cities put on them when you don't pay your tickets.

There is 2 way to make it that way, other then putting in a alarm.#1 another fuel cut off switch.If you connect a small switch( that only you know where it is) and I dont mean under the dash) that runs from the fuel pump to this switch to the wireing that turns on the pump , if thy try and start it with this fuel cut off switch it will not start.ORA switch that runs from the coil pack( or coil) to a ground it will stop the spark as a spark will take the shortest path to ground.

Install a GPS Tracking device. Your insurance will go down too, if you install it. Immobilizer doesn't work.

First off, if a thief really wants your car ... they'll find a way. However there's lots you can do to make your car less attractive to a car thief. Remember, most often, a theif targets your car because it is easy to break into, not that it is more valuable than others. I should know, this is my thrid Integra I've owned. I use to average 2 break in's a year. And now that I've taken these steps, there have been none in the last 3 years.- get a 2 way alarm- get a immobilizer- get a club, make sure the key hole faces the windshield- always remove the face plate of your stereo- park in a well lighted area- leave nothing in your car (water bottle, small change, anything. I once had my back window broken for 1 quart of motor oil that I left in the back seat)- make sure to hide or remove the brand name of your speaker components (tape over them or simply remove the logos)- if you have component speakers, install the tweeters in a hidden location.- make sure to use a reputable garage to do all your high performance parts & premium sound installation work. Fly by night installers may take note of your expensive parts and come for them late at night.- leave coin box and glove compartment opened and emptied- leave the interior & exterior of your car as plain looking as possible, don't spend your money on making the car look fast.- spend the money on making it go fast (under the hood).Good luck, have fun.

as stated already, if they want your car they get it any way possibe. there is a few things that will slow them down like runing a fuel cut off switch, another swith to the ignition, get 2 way alram. lojak is good for car recovery. reroute the hood latch cable. keep all ur valuable stuff out, remove your stereo face plate if its not the stock unit. there is a site where you can buy a boot and it works pretty well loljoin team-integra.net. they have a lot of advice on what you can do to protect your car

jyipdrag pretty much nailed it right on the head. if a thief wants your car, they'll take it. The only thing i can (HIGHLY) recommend is to invest in a GPS tracking device. Lojack is a great option. Clifford also makes an excellent GPS tracking device that'll call your cell phone if your car moves an inch while the system is armed. Look into those!

If thieves really want your car there's not much you can do about it. LoJack is a sack of crap. Thieves chopped up my uncle's Integra in 2001 which had a tracking device. They are highly overrated and the monthly fees is ridiculous.Your car already has an alarm and an immobilizer. Cars with the latter are targeted a LOT less thanks to the latter and the alarm might be useless in some cases but quite helpeful in others. Get a club, that's a visual deterrent as well as it takes awhile to jimmy the lock or saw through it.
