    Saturdaymorning, I found my car like this...
    Two spots where someone took something like a stone and hit the windshield.. :mad:
    3 weeks ago, when I just had the car, someone took my rear reflector off, while the car was parked near my office.

    I'm starting to think vandalism is a common thing with Roadsters... is it?

    Sorry to see this. It is really shameful how some people treat other people's property. Any chance they think you are footballer from an opposing team!:wink:

    Well, my neighbourhood consists of elderly people.. but it's on the way from the city center to the "lesser area's". I guess some drunk guys thought they could have some fun.

    About the dashcam: I would love to have the cam running through the night, but I haven't found a permanent 12V (or 5V) source yet... any ideas?

    Find a place to mount a security cam to monitor your parking place.

    I believe the OVMS pulls a constant 12V from the diagnostic port.

    I would put a webcam focusing on the car and then put a small sign next to the car...

    "Smile please...you are on a high security camera"
