unfortunately a fancy car alarm won't stop the idiots vandalising your car............it actually might make it more fun for them !!

probably cctv or similar would be a better idea to find out who they are and be able to do something about it.

you'll find that it will only be the same one or two vandals, and eventually they will grow out of it, or find something else to amuse themselves. ( but by then your car could be trashed ! )

if you feel the problem is more widespread I would tend to move to a better area, as life's too short to put up with this type of hassle.

I remember a couple of years back a forum member by the name of minicruiser did this, what happened to minicruiser? Loved that yellow ONE she had.
