EM1 Civic SiR

Those who are owning one or have owned one, how often have you had it broken into/stolen? I'm planning to get one, but the car being 1st and 2nd for the past 5 years on the "top 10 most stolen cars" have made me think otherwise.

Remove stickers, SiR badge, install an immobilizer maybe?

the most stolen civic generally refers to the hatchbacks. especially 88-91 since the locks were so easy to pick.

like everyone else said, get compustar and don't park it in stupid places

You could also get a detachable steering wheel to further deter car thieves...

let's be honest here guys. if someone wants to steal your car badly enough, they will flat bed/tow it away. no amount of anti-theft can prevent that.

now you can either live your life in constant fear of having your shit stolen, or you can make smart choices and limit the risk.

my brother was in the same boat as you, he wanted an SiR but did not want the hassle of getting stolen. so what he did instead was he got a ultra clean 99 civic si with high miles and did the following:

- 1999 Honda Civic Si coupe (found a very clean chassis with very high k's) $3000
- b18c 0bd2 complete swap (more torque and power) $3400 nagasaki motors
- SiR front grill and front lip (got those off a member here that has the same color) $300
- rear drum to disc swap (when to ralphs auto we took it off = more discount in price) $150
- replace si seats with USDM type-R seats (the stock seats felt like bench seats even the SiR seats too) $300
- and random parts to complete the project $500
_________________________________________________
total build $7650 give or take. and this was 2 years ago

all labour was done by friends and myself, and about 15 cases of beer, a few weekends and lots of chicken wings.

with this build not only your insurance will be cheaper than a standard SiR, it has more torque and power compare to a stock SiR

just wanted to share what my brother and i did.

Doesnt matter if its an em, ek or eg. they all get broken in to. its a civic. Its part of civic life hah. just do what everyone else says get a decent alarm with an immobilizer and dont make it look like its from fast and the furious and you shouldnt have many issues.

We all know that Civics get stolen a lot, but you're missing what he's asking.

Both the 1999 and 2000 SiR are on ICBC's most stolen list. Seperately.

If it were me, I would do something like what turb0 suggested. Buy a clean, base model Civic, and swap in the motor of your choice. Make your own Sir

Might be worth phoning an insurance place and finding out the difference in insurance between a '99/'00 SiR and a lower model trim Civic like a DX or something.

the problem with this is thieves don't check VIN's before deciding to break into your car. if it LOOKS like an SIR, they'll be interested.

btw ...car thefts have been down since baitcar started.

most thefts are usually just crackheads looking for a change or a quick joyride. stay away from surrey

heres some things that may help:

dont promote what you have with decals on the car

dont make a "build" thread

when parking, open your glove box/arm rest/detach faceplate to show there is nothing hidden inside

"the club" is a good deterrent but is easily bypassed
