As a new RNS-E owner who has read the Theft thread, I'm understandably a little paranoid now about where I park my car. Many people have suggested buying protective covers, but none are available on the market. I've made some enquires to various custom plastics companies and would now like to gauge interest amongst the good people of ASN about ordering a PVC cover for your RNS-E.
The cover itself would be PVC plastic, custom moulded so that it sits flush against the unit over the two dials with four legs that plugged into the removal key holes. I'm working on designs for the outside of the cover, but options at the moment are blank panel, Audi rings or perhaps a decal of a Symphony type unit so that at first glance through the window it looks like you've got a less expensive console unit.
Now the important bit, pricing. To re-tool a machine to run off these covers has a starting cost of over £10,000 (not including delivery, packaging etc), so minimum numbers needed for orders will be 1,000+ at between £30 and £50 a unit. What price would you, as a RNS-E unit owner, pay for a custom plastic cover that won't provide guaranteed protection against a burglary but may deter potential thieves?
