Need peoples thoughts...

Hello all,

Since recently Ive fitted a sprint Kit, 2 amps + Clarion MP3 deck, etc I really wanted to fit an alarm to the car. Now The car still has its Factory Central Locking in it that works fine. Im not looking to spend $100's on one but would like something ATM that would do the job. Imobiliser and Alarm would be great.

The car is a '91 EA 30th Anniversary.

Thankx

Re: Need peoples thoughts...

probably the best thing you can do is fit a couple of sirens under the dash with a basic alarm. you know the ones that make you throw up and feel like total shit after10 seconds if you dont get out and abandon stealing the car.
try a Buddy Lock ($400??) google it and there should be 1 that is actually for cars (youll see what i mean), wont stop your stereo from going walkies but your car will still be there at the end of the day. essentially it is a giant 'padlock' that goes around your gearshift which wont allow it from being taken out of park unless you have the key, or (lab tested) 20 litres of nitrogen (which your car would be ****ed long before that) before you can break the metal or about 1/2 with an angle grinder before you could cut far enough through it to remove it.
we have one on the ZL and when Pa had the car it had been attempted to be broken into at least 5 times, well it works coz now i have the car and ill tell you that you CANNOT steal this car.
the buddy lock can only be UNBOLTED if the GEARBOX is REMOVED.
IMO its better than a car alarm.
get this and some 'throw your guts up' sirens and your set.

Re: Need peoples thoughts...

i suggested what i did coz alarms and immobilisers are just crap. less than 30 seconds if you know what your doing and anyones car is now yours. the buddy lock gives thieves 0% chance of flogging your car unless they come equipt with a tow truck

Re: Need peoples thoughts...

I have been looking into alarms as well. It seems Jaycar have some pretty good gear for cheap.
Its $300 for a pager alarm.
Its simple to attach an alarm to central locking you already have.
Here is the link:

Let me know how you go and what you get.

Re: Need peoples thoughts...

Dan, That package seems like a top Deal

I think I will be going for that, Maybe we could buy 2 at the same time and get the price down to $269 each
