Car Alarms - Whats the best

I am in the market for a car alarm since i had 2 kids try and break into my car with half a brick. They had a few throws, and still didnt get in. They are lucky i didnt catch them!!!!


Anyways, i am just interested to see if anyone else has a car alarm, and their thoughts.

I already have the standard Remote Central locking and Imobiliser.

Seriously get the best you can afford. I dont worry that much about an alarm since theres not a lot of people who are theives in rural Vic. If I lived in a residential area then yeah

i decided to go the expensive option. all the options. i spose what do u want to protect most? theft of the car? head unit? CDs? sunnies? I paid $680 for my alarm ($80 was for auto front window closers). I havn't looked back either. Its gone off a few times when poeple (or animals) walk near the windows and wheels. I can live with that.

I suppose i want all round protection, if someone hits the car, i want the alarm to go off.

Yeah, I am waiting to get my tax back and then i am going out to buy me an alarm too. And i am definelty going to invest in a good one. I have checked out a few web site, but carnt tell you about any experiences, i reckon i might go a vision alarm, but will look into it more when i actually have got the $$. I like the sound of the ones with pagers (a little piece of mind i think) but i don't think i'll go that far ($$ pending)

try http://www.visionalarms.com.au/ for the vision web site

shock sensors take care of that, although my shock sensor was really sensitive in the front but not in the back - so i got another one installed in the back.

Talk to your insurance company, as they may offer discounts with particular alarms. Then find the best of the bunch on offer that suits your needs.

I've got a Cyclops P185 alarm on mine. Good value that also surpasses Aus Standards and regulations. Heaps of additional options too.
definitely worth a look!

Try Brant Car Alarms.
Quote:
Our systems are the choice of proactive car companies like Subaru Australia to protect such icon vehicles as Impreza WRX STi and Liberty B4 as standard original equipment.

More insurers of performance vehicles insist on BRANT as a security requirement on their policies.

More importers of high performance Japanese and US vehicles fit BRANT to their vehicles than any other brand.
They're actually a premium brand sold throughout the UK/Europe/USA/Germany etc.
