    Ahhhh man!!

    Take lots of days off work, stake out all night for at least a week.

    Catch the *******s red handed and plough their heads deep into the pavement and call the 5-0

    Or it could be a nice chap....and you've just gazed at your 8P for far too long....

    Does sound fishy though!

    Park the car at a friends or family house / get some keys and take the RNSE out until you have sold it.

    Slight inconvienience , but might save you some grief.

    Ironically it took me 5 minutes to edit the html code as the formatting tools don't close the code at end, they add everything at front end which formats sweet fa lmao.

    on a more serious note i've set the camera to motion, so it will start recording when it detects motion. This will make a chime noise when it starts recording and have plugged into into my speakers via aux and turned speakers on to the max. Hopefully this should wake me up and make me bolt to the front door!
    I'm just praying the neighbours cats don't give me any false alarms lmao.

    I would go and borrow someones guard dog and stick it in the car overnight. You'll comedown in the morning to either:-

    1. Partially eaten thieving scumbag (which is what you want)

    or

    2. completely eaten interior (which you don't)
