Depends on the alarm also. I've had Viper and Compustar alarms. You can put them on real sensitive settings to the point where the slightest movement sets it off. It's really annoying.

This also reminds me of when I was at Cal Poly Pomona. One of my friends had his lip kit off his RSX stolen in the school parking lot, in the middle of the day!! The idiots even left some of their tools.

Ever notice how alarms always tend to go off when you don't want them too? Then when you need them to go off, sometimes they don't?

Dude, McKenna doesn’t have the best rep around here. And I hate to admit it, but I experienced it firsthand. I went through Long Beach BMW to get my M, but you guys actually had the car I wanted. After you were not willing to do a dealer trade with LB BMW I actually called you guys direct and the SA I was working with at LB even teed up a deal for you, told you guys the exact financial specs on the deal LB had going with me, and we basically said match it, and I will come by and get the car from you. I was going to give the SA at LB BMW a little referral fee for helping me out.

Long story short the car you guys had was cheaper than the one I ended up getting and you were asking like $25 more a month and $1K more on the deposit so I just ended up buying through LB BMW.

OP, sorry for thread hijack

I completely understand what you mean, I've done my research and I understand what's been said and posted on the forum. But McKenna realizes the importance of automotive enthusiasts forums. Part of my job here is to help make the dealer more forum friendly in terms of customer service and car buying experience. That's all I can say for now as we are not sponsors yet (still working on it).
