    you could use a few locking wheel nuts on each wheel mate
    also park in a street with lots of people around not in the back streets
    if they want them they well get them we can only slow them down

    i posted a thread up about this recently...using a few locking nuts on each wheel...it appears this isn't such a good idea, the wheel will eventually shake off because your not meant to overtighten locking nuts

    you could get a tilt motion sensor alarm fitted, so that if the car mover at all it will go off. Other than locking wheel nuts thats about as much as you can do I am affriad.

    I swear a few years ago you could get an alarm that made the whole electrified so if anyone touched it the would get an electric shock

    buy 4 different sets of locking nuts

    place one of each nut on each wheel
    so four different locking nuts on four wheels, u get what i mean?

    that will slow them down

    as said above, get a tilt sensor, on my old car, mine was awesome, you could only get 2 throws on the jack and it went off! by that time the wheel hasnt even come off the floor...

    also park it where its out in the open, so to speak, not hidden away!
