I do have brackets on the pacifica that's why they could not take my headlights. They try to pull/yank everything they could but end up ripping my bumper, cracked the lens and scratched my fender. The mechanic said it would have less damage if it was'nt for the bracket. I got the mercury switch under the hood and siren mounted deep inside. So, once they popped the hood alarm goes off.

Looks like the theft problem has been moved from the tri-state area (NY, NJ and CT) to Florida and elsewhere. Since Nissan put in the reinforcement brackets and datadots in 2005, HID thefts have subsided significantly, at least in the tri-state.
Based on statistics and history, it appears that these scumbag thieves have learned to tell the difference between a "fixed" car and a "naked" car, and tried to avoid wasting their time on fixed cars.
Having said that, however, if Nissan wants to avoid being sued (again), it better offer the reinforcement and datadot fix nationwide. The cost to Nissan is probably around $50 per car, not including labor charges. It is well worth the nominal costs to Nissan vis-a-vis the expensive legal bills in defending lawsuits.

are those thefts still crazy for the Maxima xenon headlight recently in NYC? My friend told me that xenon headlight is getting cheaper now. Around $200-300. Is it true?

hey smart guy...lol...do u honestly think theives are that stupid? you do kno who these theives are right..majority of these theives are your local mechanics, at your local lexus or honda or nissan deals, where do u think these kids get these ideas, i mean if their smart enough to figure out a way to take your headlights right from under you. and getting away with it every 9 out of 10 times, what makes u think they wont know anything about your car..and just to remind u, they do know that your car has HID's you have clear tazor tail light with the silver ring instead of full black housing with the red and white circle....the way to find HID is to look for the silver RING in the tail light....smart guy, think again, u just down graded your car for nothing........that was worthless and a waste of time.......
Waste of time my aZZ,they look at the headlight!
4 years and noboduy has touched it.
That is the fix.
I also fix the car myself ,dealer was told off after they looked at my stereo doing a seatbelt change that had NOTHING to do with the trunk they looked in.

my 2003 nissan headlights were stolen in my driveway!!! we live in a nice neighborhood - thinking that I was followed home...scary. My neighbor happened to be out at 3:30am and saw them, called the police, but they were unable to catch them.
I am in Charleston, SC area.
