How do you deal with the possibility that your car might be a target? Insurance aside, having something happen to your car is just a pain in the ass and frustrating. I'm looking to order a new lease car for work this week and was considering going for a BMW 5 Series. It fits into my budget nicely, has an efficient engine, low CO2 emissions, good size, well equipped etc. Thing is, I've never driven anything extravagant before. Since getting my licence, I've driven nothing but Volkswagens, which while looking smart are quite low key and don't stand out. I see it as a good thing because other drivers are neutral towards you and generally you aren't an obvious target for theft or vandalism. Like with my current car, I've parked it down small narrow roads, in tight spaces and unsavoury areas without a second thought. This new car though...hmm.
