I feel like freakin' Clint Eastwood, I have to stand guard on my porch with a frickin shotgun. So I'm assuming some kid stole one of my air valve metal covers... anyone know if the dealer will just give me another? How much do they cost if not?

GET OFF MY LAWN!

HAHA, great wording in your post!!

It wouldn't hurt to ask but I assume they will charge you. I know my dealer sells sets of these but I didn't notice the price. You can buy them at other stores such as walmart or auto stores also.

The dealer left one off my car when I went in for the 30 day once over! I'm about 30 miles away, so they mailed one to me (but it was just put in an envelope and the Post Office sorting equipment just ripped it out!! :eek:)

So I went to another (closer) dealer's service department, explained it to them (see above) and they just gave me another one. No Sweat! :D

They even asked if I wanted to upgrade, but I like the stock caps! ;)

You know I've been thinking about this for years. I live in a great neighborhood really, but there have been a few things happen over the years that were pushing me to do some sort of Security Cam, including someone stealing some antique cast iron furniture off my front porch while I was sleeping and my neighbor had one of his brake light covers stolen not to long ago. Recently I got a new neighbor with two kids about 12-14. I love kids, but I'm noticing that age is a little wild based on the commotion going on over there with their friends when the Mom is not home. Then I noticed bicycle skid marks on my gravel driveway with rocks thrown on the sidewalk to the house... then a skid mark about 3 feet from the back of the CT! So finally decided I needed to get some sort of Camera. I thought this was a better idea then talking to the parent for now... I don't want two teenagers pissed off at me.. ;) Anyway.. I pulled out a webcam and tried it with no luck as it wouldn't adjust to the bright light at all. Then I pulled out an old Intel webcam and it worked great. I'm using my old X40 Thinkpad which I put an SSD in and software called Vitamin D. One can get a free version which monitors just one Cam. It senses motion and records People and Unknown objects and only saves those frames. I do plan on getting a higher end Security Cam with night vision and have been researching those a bit. Anyway gives me a little peace of mind and when I install a better wireless IP camera I will be able to have a look when traveling. I don't own a gun, but sure enjoyed that Eastwood movie... R:)

I had all 4 taken off my RX at a neighborhood store. My salesman said if it happens on the CT let him know. He said he had a some he would give to me. I have nitrogen in my tires so my valve covers have an "N" on them.

Put some grease on it, sure it'll be uglier if you look at it closely, but at least they won't be gone.

When you run out of shells,:) ask your salesman. He may have some in his desk that he will give to you.

My wife got me a set of the "Lexus" ones online that have an "L" on the end (sort of look like the "L" is under glass. Anyway, they look pretty neat on the CT!

i vheck my caps every day. it is just a matter of time until a kid takes them. They put them on their bikes. Keep a supply on hand because they will continue to disappear. i bought a neat little set on eBay with the Lexus logo on them as a back up set.
