I plan to come with my new BMW car, and do I have to install alarm against car theft? Is car theft a problem in Paris? I would visit Drancy, and the center of the city?

Correction : "they are improperly caled " instead "someone they are called".

Roma is a name given to gypsy population a group of nomadic population living in all European countries, who migrated centuries ago from India, whose language and customs have been carried to the presentday group. They are mistakenly associated with Romanian population just because someone they are improperly called Roma. They could as easily be taken for population living in Rome. They are neither Romanians nor Italians coming from Rome. Wikipedia or any reliable google site will provide more detailed information.

Many people in France amplify the security problems because they stigmatize A LOT strangers and immigrants, without knowing so much about them. Paris is one of the worriest city in Europe i think but it is because of the lack of good manners characteristic of the Parisians, not because of the people of the street. Don't forget that France is not the revolutionnary and love country anymore, here racism increases since many years and life is more and more expensive.
For tourists, you have to pay attention when you wait for visiting famous monuments as the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre, because there are many pickpockets waiting in the lines. For the same reason, pay attention when you walk on the Champs Elysées. And, as in every city of the world, more you go out of the historic and touristic center, more you'll face risks of violence... but the true violence is the prices violence in the center of Paris ;)

In Paris metro stations can be dangerous as pickpockets are quite often in action. Groups of minor children from Roumania are attacking tourists during crowded situations.
Parts of Paris e.g. 18, 19 and 20 arrondissement can represent a potentialdanger at night.
Northern suburbs of Paris should be avoided by tourists.
