I'VE ORDERED THE FACTORY ALARM ($605) ON MY XR6, ON PAR WITH GOOD AFTERMARKET DEVICES, AND WORKS WITH THE REMOTE AS WELL. PLUS LOCK NUTS FOR THE WHEELS, PLUS A CLUB LOCK FOR THE STEERING WHEEL. HOPE THAT COVERS IT

Thank god you've stopped shouting! Do you know if these alarms are compatible with an AU? Of course you probably don't - why would you know or care. Think I'll ring Ford and ask for a price.

Same here. I was originally going to get QikTrak but after making some enquiries here on the Forum I got some fairly negative feedback on it and decided against it. The car is fully insured and gets replaced with a brand spanker if it gets stolen in the first year, not that I want this to happen of course.

I'm not a big believer in alarms, most people ignore them. I know I would hesitate to challenge someone I saw getting into a car with an alarm going off in case they pulled a knife or gun.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

No alarm here. Not a fan of steering wheel locks (cut the steering wheel off she comes)
What I have got is a Solex pedal lock.

Dont know how easy it is to crack but gives me peace of mind.

Also have lock nuts.

i relie on the factory fitted smart lock which incorporates an engine immoboliser on my ELXR8.

I feel comfortable enough with the factory security to keep mine safe.

Even if was a BA id still feel safe with the factory security.

Scope out my '80 XD Fairmont Ghia 351 V8 in the gallery!
