Dont have much hope for getting it back but for the short time I had it, it was the best car I’ve ever driven. Next one I get will have alarm and lojack! Be careful!

Was it driven or towed away?

When's the group buy for a Lojack?

Sorry for the loss man, hopefully you find it in one piece.

Sorry to hear. I'm in central NJ, so i'll keep an eye out for it down here. I hope it turns up in one piece.

My biggest fear with the S2K. There must be an effective way to avoid this.

I was thinking the same thing. It's getting like the blue 2000 Civic SIs.

Someone had this all figured out that it was a mechanic at one of the dealerships.

Lots of cold cases here.

I believe these are inside jobs, and an employee at a Honda dealer is getting keys. They likely push it down the road silent, then swap in an ECU without immobilizer to drive away.

This is not going to stop until someone digs deep.

I guarantee with enough digging, the local dealer in which the Honda Interactive Network was accessed can be found. The iN is accessed anytime a VIN is used for VIN-to-keycut codes.

I can almost guarantee these 7 thefts are related.

One proactive step is to cover the vin on your car.

The best is a concrete anchor, or tree, and chain the rear subframe.
