    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?

    That is a boatload of suck. Sorry dude.

    Is this parked in a rough area?

    Dashcam time?

    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"
