    Hey guys
    Are there any products that would prevent the impact if someone your keys car? I am about to buy a car and am worried about it being keyed. Would a thick polish or something help keep a scratch superficial?

    No way is a wax going to help. Think about it....wax or sealant isn't going to be anywhere near as hard as the paint and if keys go into paint, do you really think wax will prevent that?

    Not much you can do except electrify your car so anyone attempting to key it gets electrocuted. :dunno:

    Don't take it out in public and leave it unattended is a sure way to prevent keying.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: yeah i was thinking that. at one point, i saw a guy put cameras in both sides of the side view mirrors facing front and back, hooked to a motion sensing set-up with a VCR.

    Don't do something that will annoy people like personalized license plates saying "I'M RICH"

    that will double the chances of it getting keyed


    tie an angry, hungry rottweiler to the car and give it enough leash to walk around it...problem solved.

    Be sure to leave some water, a sun shade and toys so it doesn't get bored after killing a couple car keyers :)

    Yeah like getting "PLZ KEY" would make it better.

    1) Dont take up 2 parking spots.
    2) If you drive like a douche, watch for people that might follow you.
    3) Dont take your nice car to shitty places, or crappy parking.

    There was a big thread in a BMW forum where people were bitching about getting keyed.. when they said they openly park in 2 spots, even when they're parked way out in the lot they still take up 2 spots.

    Weirdo's :mamoru:
