MY STOLEN S2K FROM DAVIE, FL (help please!)

Good morning everyone, my 2002 S2000 was stolen from my apartment building in Davie, FL. It's the Sebring Silver with all red interior, personalized plates "TXN S2K". I am actually about to move back to Texas in about 3 weeks, so the timing of this is horrible. Please, if there is any information, my e-mail address is [email protected]. I have had her for 3+ years and have kept her stock, in hopes to keep her until she was a classic. Unfortunately, some coward decided it would be best to completely ruin my day/week/year. She has 155k miles on it, so if any red seats turn up with a lot of wear on the lumbar support, please contact me. Thank you all, I hope this turns out for the better and I can reply with some good news.

Hope this has a positive ending 85, do check the local Craigslist, Honda-Tech and local papers for those seats, etc. Hopefully they just went for a joyride and didn't trash it/strip the car.

Sorry to hear about this 85. Our cars are being attacked more and more these days whether it be for seats or the entire vehicle. If you get her back, look into a paging alarm system, hidden kill switches and keep yourself armed. Sadly it is a decision that I and many other S2000 owners have had to make. We will not be victims of auto theft again. Good luck.

Don't they need the chip in the key to start the engine?

They do need the chip key but most of these pros find a way around it, usually by towing it away.

Most of the time from what I have seen it will end up far away from where it was stolen. I will keep an eye out for the parts over in Tampa St Pete area.

Thanks for all the positive feedback, but it's not looking too good. Everyone that doesn't have some protection already, I would highly recommend it. Don't put it off, just make it your first mod. I knew it was a huge risk but kept thinking it would never happen to me, but then I was wrong. Now I have to search for a new car, won't get to keep a car that I would have liked to keep forever, and have to find something that was as fun/entertaining as my S2. Allstate pays me out after 10 days, we're now on day 4....

GREAT NEWS!!

I was just informed by Davie police that my vehicle has been recovered!! Apparently the only damage was a torn top and ignition. I have to wait until tomorrow morning to go get the car, but it's going straight to my shop to get all the necessary fixes. Thank you all for your support, pictures will be posted soon.

Glad to hear you got her back! I would Throughly and I mean THROUGHLY have your entire drive train gone thru as well, if they took it out for a joy ride they could have driven the guts out of her. Pull the valve cover and have a mechanic who is familiar with the S2000 look her over for cracked valve retainers, change all the fluids and look for metal shavings in the diff etc.
No sense in having something go sideways on you months down the road that may have been related to this theft. let you r insurance know what you want done and stick to your guns!

Oh and get a garage

That's good news, now do some research on alarm systems and see about securing that car especially at night.

The car is currently at RAW in Ft Lauderdale, they're taking care of it for me. Seats will be secured, alarm will be set, and I'll have a garage in Dallas when I move back. I'm definitely doing it right this time.

That's great news that it was recovered and has not been destroyed, it's a shame that we have to worry about where to park it but it is what it is and we must be aware of that all the time....I'm lucky enough to have a garage where it is safe and well protected by Mr.Smith&Wesson....

I have read a few replys on how you guys protect your cars with your weapon of choice. Here in great state of Massachusetts we have this crazy rule which makes my under the pillow protector somewhat unlawful

Massachusetts gun laws require that all firearms, rifles, and shotguns be stored in a secured, locked container or equipped with a tamper resistant mechanical lock or other safety devices properly engaged as to render the weapon inoperable by unlawful users. Moreover, every firearm and large capacity weapon sold in the Commonwealth must be equipped with a safety device (trigger lock) designed to prevent its discharge by an unauthorized user.

Just wondering if anyone else has any crazy gun laws like this?

I'm sure other states have the same law. Tell the robber to hold on so you unlock your gunsafe and grab some ammo.

We have the Texas castle doctrine here, as do other states, so we are able to defend our homes/vehicles.

Get a cheap gun safe, so if you ever have to use that "handy" weapon, you can point to the safe and say "Yessir Officer, I got it out of there when I heard that funny noise."

And remember that you warned the intruder before you shot him 15 times.

Happy you got it back! I also live down here in SF in Coral Springs and i cover mine every night to try to prevent people knowing that there is an s2 in the neighborhood. Most alarms wont do any good cuz they'll just break the glass open the hood and disconnect the battery. Try getting a GPS installed with a kill switch somewhere in the car. These will be the first two things i will get for mine. Best of luck!
