Mine is generally fine when it's on driveway... security lights put people off coming up the drive I think...

When it's parked elsewhere -- best thing is just to park it next to a nicer car , or under CCTV cameras....

Myself as I havent touched it from std its parked in my yard about 50 metres away from the small shitty country road, got loads of security lights that light up the yard if someone comes up and dogs that bark all fucking night.

Mondeo TD's are ok, there is a bit of lag but they go ok enough!

bit of a shite ride though, very spongy & rolls like a fat-ass-bitch when cornering!
