    As with having a 'shopping list' down the side of your car, some details are best kept out of the hands of theives and crooks. SilviaWA is powerless to prevent scum from lurking within the forum, so it your responsibility to be mindful of the information your are forfeiting to these potential theives.

    • Location of the car.
      Having photo's posted on the net or details as to whether your car is garaged overnight or left on a steeet verge screams 'easy target'. Although we ask for your location within your signature, it is best not to be too specific.
    • Number plates & VIN details
      Don't underestimate the tracking abilities of readers. In other areas of Australia it has been reported that members of car clubs have recieved letters from their DPI stating that there is 'information' that their car has illegal mods and will require an inspection. All due to police browsing forums and gathering info.
    • Alarm specifications
      The last thing you want is to provide any would-be theives with is any information they need to sidestep any security systems. It is also reccommended you install a hidden switch which toggles power to your fuel pump or ignition, as many immobilisers are easily bypassed.

    If any members notice suspicious activity, for example people taking down notes or details of cars at any events, suspected stolen parts being advertised, or an unusual number of break ins in one area. Be sure to raise awareness within the club or contact a member of the committee.
