get the torx screws... they have a smaller chance of being stolen than the regular screws. I feel ya man, someone jacked my bumper lens too but the funny part was that they only took one side!

Put the screws in from the back side instead of the front.

Use screws with a different style of head on them. It will keep the average phillip head screwdriver theif away.

i put some tile caulk on top of the screws because it takes a good amount of time to scrape and pull off the caulk from the screws so that you can screw them out. i think that crooks would not spend that much time just to steal corner lenses. hope this helps:D

Caulk is a bad idea because not only will it look gross if someone sees it, but what if a bulb burns out? Then you gotta go through all that trouble of getting it off.

New bulbs should not be $50. Don't buy them from your local dealer, goto the speed shop (import hookup shop). You should be able to get two big blinker bulbs and a set of the smaller indicators in hyperwhite for less than $30 or so.

A torx headed screw is a very good idea. Most people don't even have a torx screwdriver let alone carry one around on them. I would go get a couple of the same diameter torx screws and put them in. In fact I think I'll go do that myself a little later too. :)

its all good because caulk is white and i have a white car. it isnt even noticeable unless you walk up to it. corner bulbs (i have yellow ones, not hyperwhite) should last a long time, so i would only have to go through that kind of trouble once in a long while:D

You better knock on wood, tomorrow one of your bulbs are gonna burn out and you're going to feel liek an ass :p. Caulk seems like it's taking it a bit far.
