    Atom ownership when living in an apartment complex (Bay Area, CA)

    Hi Folks,

    I am currently living in an apartment complex in the Bay Area. The complex has an ungated underground lot. Does anyone here own an Atom and live in such a complex? I am basically concerned about:

    1. Security - I mean, the Atom is an open car, I don't want others messing around (worse, stealing it).
    2. Ground clearance (entering/leaving the parking lot)
    3. Any other gotchas?

    I am mulling an Atom 3S, but I don't want to purchase a house as a prerequisite!

    Edit: I live in Mountain View - just to give you an idea of living / safety conditions around here.

    Thanks.

    Hi Cacofonix,
    I live on a boat in Seattle so I can relate

    Regarding 1:
    I got a storage unit for my Atom a couple of years ago.
    When I do leave it outdoors overnight I like to cover it up (with the indoor cover). The downside is that it stands out even more but the upside is that reomvable steering wheel and everything else about it remains unknown for anyone just checking it out.
    This setup has worked great for me for a couple of years.

    2. Never been an issue. You have to time your trip with high tide if you take it on a ferry but that's about it I think.
