Alarms...what does everyone recommend?

Hey all

am looking for a decent alarm system to throw into my next car after the debacle with the EA. I had my own fuel cut off switch in the EA, but the bastards found it

I want something pretty damn hard to get past this time.

was looking at this from ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....category=31250

it has a lot of features I want, not sure if its an actual immobiliser though.....just wondering what alarms the community has, what you recommend........im planning on keeping the next car, AND its contents as well......remote start/paging would be cool bonuses though :)

There are a few different brands that do similar things to that one. I know a guy who imported one from japan ( magicar or something its called ). I'm planning on getting something similar in the next few months ( I park near work, and it'll benice to be able to check on the car all day ). I imagine that they are all fairly similar and do roughly the same job as each other ...

Anyhoo, if your next car has Smartlock, that does a fairly good job imo ( in the immobiliser way of things anyway ).

Otherwise, I'd just be heading for multiple cut-outs, prolly fuel, maybe a start-motor or something. I would be tempted to go with something that doesn't kick in for maybe 30secs after starting . . . Enough for them to get 50m and have it stop on em . . . ( a nice surprise for em )

One idea that I like using a magnetic reed switch. Have some sort of small magnet that you keep on your keychain or something - and unless its in a specific spot, the car won't start - better imo than a physical switch you can see . . . Mount it under the centre console or something, so that once you put the magnet in, you're a go . . .

Re: Alarms...what does everyone recommend?

I like the ones which use a sim card intergrated into the alarm to phone you when the system is activated!

Re: Alarms...what does everyone recommend?

yeah that is a good idea the SMS ones. You chuck a pre paid card in and away you go. How much more expensive are they im very interested in one and who make these babies.
