I agree on the Pros. The stolen parts shadow industry is bigger than most realize. Evidence the market in stolen air bags reported over the last few years. There are professional thieves that specialize in this kind of thing and have honed their art even to where a car can be totally stripped by a swarm team in a remarkably short period of time. (Drop a car off on the side of the Cross-Bronx Expressway in NYC for a couple of hours at night to see this in action). These guys also have their outlets established to dispose of the parts.
If I didn't care about damage, with a few tools (and something more than 15 seconds), I bet I could rip out the ACC lenses from my car. Assuming I actually took the bet, of course.
