Well I knew it would happen at some point, but my car was violated with under 500 miles.

I was in Costco in Sterling VA for less than 20 minutes, and when I returned, the back STi badge was completely ripped off, and they attempted to rip the back off but just broke it.

Luckily they didnt mess the whole grill up.

I got some pics on the front page of my website, http://www.usdmsti.com

::sigh::

Savages, what I can't figure out is what those bastards will do with the f'ed up badge? I mean now they have to buy some seriously expensive 3m foam tape or something to use it.

It will probably wind up on their honda too :evil:

:evil: SOB's I live in the area. Did you call Loudon Police?
Now do I just leave my STI in the garage and just take it out on Sundays for a pleasure drive!

Yeah, their was a Sherrif up their already arresting some punk for stealing. I actually asked him to see if he had them, but he said he had already frisked him and he had nothing of the sort.

He took a report, and said their wasnt anything he could really do.

I just need to order some new badges tomorrow, and not park in public I guess? :: shrug :: :roll:

Sorry to hear that man! Makes me wonder if it would happen to me if I had that car? Sorry, I promise it is the last time I will mention that I could've had your car :)

This makes me nervous about my EVO. Some jackass could decide to rip off my badge to complement his Mirage with a bodykit on.

That sux. You have an alarm?

I have been worried about this before I even got my STi. I will really be worried come next Monday when my STi graduates to my daily driver.

Unfortunately, alarms don't do much good for vandalism (or car thefts for that matter). Just gotta park where it's more secure, if possible. Someone took my Honda badge a while ago, but I never thought that Subaru badges were vulnerable too...

ack! oh, the humanity. this sucks so badly. i feel your pain. now i'm going to be freaking out since i park in the open at the university. i guess i should place an order for extra badges...and maybe i should put 'em in a box next to the car with a little sign "help yourself, but please don't touch the car". :~

I had my badges of my Honda ripped off twice in N.VA. I think this area is pretty bad for that. I wonder if a super motion sensitive alarm would help (i.e., one that makes noise if somebody comes w/in a foot or so of your STi). I am serioulsy thinking about that because sounds like these STi badges are hot items.

That sucks. I mean, what kind of lowlife would do that? You can find those badges on eBay for $10.

I have always intended to remove the WRX badge (too much clutter), but I might take of the STi as well to prevent the paint damage.

I'll be on the lookout for Ford Probes and Honda Civics with STi badging.

Heh, where do you think those cheap emblems come from? But this brings up a good point... you think about checking for e-bay emblem sellers that live in your area?

Be on a lookout for ricers with the "Type R - Sti - Evolution" badge combo. They usually follow the "single wiper conversion" mod.

:)! i often wonder what goes through the head of the rebadgers. do they think they're fooling anyone? does it make their car look cool?? does it make their cars faster?? sometimes i think i live in a completely different universe than those guys.
