#189 of 229 Stolen HID Headlamp Rampage!!!!!
Oct 14, 2005 (10:47 pm)
I just made a 1345 mile trip to come to my daughter's rescue after some thugs made off with her headlights at a football game. Not only did they get hers, they made off with 13 other cars, most of them Nissans(7 Maxima's, 2 I30's, 1 G35 2 350 Z's and oddly, a Chrysler 300 C, all with HID's) So I decided the best thing to do was to call the local Nissan dealer in Austin, Texas(GO LONGHORNS) and purchase the headlamps . The rep told me that they were on back-order for 3 MONTHS. He further said that they cost an estimated $789 a piece. I was in total shock. So I called the insurance company after I got the police report and they implied that they would suck up the cost minus the $500 deductible AFTER they locate a set of lights. WHAT?? So the car was completely unusable at night and because my daughter wouldn't be caught dead driving a car without headlamps even in the daytime, I left her my 3500 Dodge Ram to drive until I could get back home and find the lights. Turns out, no one had them because of this latest round of theft to the Nissan cars. Here comes the gotcha!
Checked out E-bay, and guess what people ? I saw all of our lights.
Wonder what would've been the outcome of all of this if Nissan would've stamped the VIN# on all of the headlamp assembly's? These guys were selling them for like $100 bucks. So I managed to buy 2 sets, 1 as a spare. After about 5 days, flew back down to Texas and the bandits had made off with the Dean of Students Infiniti Q45 headlamps and a few other Nissan-related cars. Now they had finally done it. He had ordered 24/7 police patrol after "his" car got snabbed.
To say the least, I left my truck with her and drove the Max back home to Long Island and trade it in on a '06 GTO for her today. She originally wanted a G35 Coupe, but as you can see they're just as easy to be vandilized. I will never buy another Nissan again. Nissan, knowingly mad a bad headlamp design, has lost me and quite a few other customers. And for more reasons than the headlamps. But that is whole nother story........................

Anyone with Xenon lights in NJ are subject to HID thefts!
No matter what you drive,lexus,toyota,nissan,whatever.
If it has bling ,bling,you know what type of person wants it
Let me tell you they live in deprived areas :Newark,Passaic, and the Oranges.Also people with suped-Hondas that have readily available Projector housings that fit your HIDs,pick up a custom car magazine or search online.We need to sue the hell out of these people that promote stolen lights!!!The aftermarket car parts people.
So get a car with halogens,sue some companies, or stop complaining.If any lawyers out there want to do this post online,or reply so we can all join in.

I seriously recommend turning off your CAPS LOCK - people either tend to ignore messages written in ALL CAPS or become irritated by them especially when they appear in tandem, i.e. ALL CAPS will not help you make your case.
