After having a wing window (remember those! :P ) broken by someone to steal my stereo (a pullout no-less that I was too lazy to pull out!) system I learned to keep everything out of sight, including loose change. Nothing visible and they move on to an easier target. I love parking next to people who leave their phones and GPS visible. Haven't had a vehicle broke into in well over 20 years now.

Doesn't surprise me. To a punk, $20 is $20. Between that and the knife they'll get $30. They'll bust a window for $.30 in loose change.
