the don't have kids lesson made me laugh out loud for real. best of luck to you. i too had cars i wish people would have stolen or destroyed.


thanks. Sorry for the confusion. I dont want any of my cars stolen, but if they were to take one of my cars I would have preferred them taking the porsche as I dont like it as much as the nismo and its way easier to replace the porsche than the nismo. Literally there are less than 10 nismos for sale in america and I highly doubt they are going to go down in value from this point forward.

Sorry to hear man, having three kids myself, it happens. Just happened at the wrong time. Luckily it was just a car and nothing more serious. Hopefully you have a camera system and made it easy for the LEOs. Used to live in Branford, CT and back then I did the same thing. Heck keys for 7 cars are all hanging in my garage now. Rather keep it easy for someone who is going to take it one way or another anyways. Objects are easily replaced, health not so much. Be safe and best of luck !!

Comparing a mighty Nismo to the peasant 991 Gt3 is not a wise move, why did you pick a Gt3 up in the first place ?
Could have saved and now you woulda had a legemdary 2020 Nismo.

Anyways its not like we lost our homes or kids, it was just a car.

I live in Wallingford and we have some gents that drive up from Bridgeport to rob open cars in my suburban neighborhood. Neighbor had Jeep keys in the BMW that was left unlocked. They took both. Ive left my garage door completely open and light on over night on a couple of occasions 🤦‍♂ but Ive been lucky enough to have nothing happen.

In this day and age, highly recommend setting up motion sensors, tilt sensors, and cameras to help with the scenarios of the garage being left open, unknowingly opened by someone else in the household or opening when triggered by a neighbor who might have the exact same code. Although rare, the latter does occur especially in areas where all homes are built by the same builder and subs, using the same openers in hundreds of homes.


In home defense and protection courses, they always talk about multiple layers. Dogs can help. Sensors and cameras can notify via smartphone push alerts, text, or create custom rules using a smart hub attached device. Generally the basic alerts are for when it senses the garage door opening, left open for > a certain amount of time, and motion detection in general. It's not out of the ordinary to have false alerts especially the dogs lol but if all are notifying, the alerts are likely legitimate. If the contents in the garage are replaceable, the most important thing is installing a self-locking keypad door knob on the door leading from the garage into the home because if someone gains entry into the main home, that can be a mess. That's one of the most common entry points for intruders who prey on people that leave their garage open. Most people don't care enough to be proactive about these things until they get victimized.

My cars are my kids!  :lol:


The don't have kids comment also made me laugh. Hoping to convince my wife to have some in the near future. As much as it sucks, thankfully they just took the car and left everything else alone. Looking forward to hearing what the insurance company decides to do and what your next steps are.

In addition to the above stated on home protection: I put a rifle cable lock through the garage door track and the wheel closest to the hole in the track. One of my old friends told me how when he was young him and his friends would just lift up hard enough on the door and it would open. Its obviously not convenient but it works. I have two cars outside that remotely open the door so if one of those got broken into, without even turning on the car they would be able to open the garage door.
Another not so convenient home defense is a bar across the interior door if it opens in.
All windows and doors in my house have a 120 decibel alarm. Got them in 4 packs from Walmart. At minimum it lets me know if my 3yo is trying to go outside!
