We spend hours of every week in our cars. We want it to be a little home-from-home, with the radio, the heater, and everything we could possibly need on the journey - from the mobile phone and the sat nav to a handful of change, sunglasses and a change of clothes.

There's just one small thing we're apt to forget: anything we leave in the car is on show, and a potential magnet to thieves.
