    A ~ $120,000 GTS deserves much more than that RD.

    Would have been better off leaving the car unlocked.

    @erickonphoenix maybe if you had that owlcam you would have caught the jerk who broke into your car...

    The garage had a vvideo and they couldn't do anything with it. I doubt any camera footage would have helped. It's a couple of homeless dudes looking for change.

    Sucks this is in my city (Austin)...more cautious about the Domain parking garages now.
    And I own a new porsche and can only imagine having to deal with this..

    Maybe they will think my R3 is some cheap looking Rocky Mountain job and won't steal it...

    I'd get medium sized camera case and tote your gear in and out of the vehicle. That's what I do and it's been pretty successful.
