Just came across this on boston.com.

Car stereos are ancient history, and airbags are old hat. As Lufkus discovered,
xenon headlights, those super bright headlights with a bluish tinge common to many
high-end cars, are the coveted automobile item nowadays. Car thieves have been
swiping them in increasing numbers across Boston, selling them on the black market
for a fraction of their $540 list price, and leaving unsuspecting car owners with
repair bills in the thousands.

With the right tools, thieves can steal headlights off two models in particular,
Audi S4s and Nissan Maximas, in under a minute, auto industry specialists said. The
headaches for car owners last a lot longer.
