Depends on the person trying to break into it. I've watched "seasoned" tow truck drivers take 25-30 minutes to open a locked door on a CRX, while at the same time, when a friend of mine lost his keys in Las Vegas, we used one of those free porno mags to jimmy the door open and a screw driver to get the ignition switch off. Total time... bout 7 minutes. Imagine if we had the correct tools.

You can always do things to make it harder to break into car, but really if the person wants in... a rock does the job nicely, and takes about 2 seconds if you get the window to break on the first try. The reason I know this is cause my GFs car had this done to it... they didn't have time to take anything, and thankfully they didn't miss the window and hit the side of the car, but its still a pain to vacuum up all that glass.
