kinda of a noobie in the RSX game. i was wondering is it necessary to get a kill siwtch to prevent thiefs from stealing my car?? :dontknow:

cause i had one on my Old Ej1 since those are easier to break into.

what do you guys think?

Depends on your location.

You can always get lojack and call it a day.

No. Because your key is chipped and the car won't start without that chip unless someone brings along their own K-Pro and takes the time to install it before stealing your car.... which is just stupid.

Our cars get stolen by flatbeds and tow trucks. A kill switch won't help unless you manage to install it on their truck ahead of time :p

it seems some areas are more prone to theft.. and i happen to live in one of those areas.

so it really depends on how many layers of defense you have...

i have an alarm... with the wiring and brain hidden... then a back-up battery for the alarm system just in case they try to disconnect the battery.

Hood cable is relocated to impede access to under the hood. and i have a kill switch..

on top of that - when i park my car - at least in the drive way... i turn the steering wheel so it they try to tow the car out it will slam into the wall first.

^^ not to say all this will prevent my car from getting stolen. but i figure if i make it hard enough the thieves will either give up or not bother and try to steal another car.

So a kill switch alone is a nice to have and it does not hurt. but there are no guarantees it will prevent theft of your car.

GPS tracker is your best bet. . . because yes towing has become the new quickest theft solution

Its a front drive car, they need to break in to take it out of gear anyway (assuming you leave it in gear).

Depends, if they have a flatbed they can just drag that shit onto the bed in gear, ebrake on whatever, get one of the wheel locks that should slow em down :thumbsup:
