    dont really mattrer what you have at the end of the day if they want it they'll get it - anything you haves just goin to slow them down a bit. (assuming its someone who knows what they are doing)

    The steering wheel cover that covers the whole wheel is a very good bet.

    a decent alarm CAT 1

    a steering wheel lock (prefable a cover one)

    Locking wheel nuts

    face of head unit

    leave the glove box open and empty

    leave the parcel shelf off and boot empty

    tracker

    wheel clamp

    the list goes on and on...

    At the end of the day if they want your car they will take your car, the least you should be doing is locking wheel nuts and a CAT 1 alarm. IMHO.

    No best way really as Mat says. If they want ya motor, they will take it . Even the best alarms, wheel locks aint gonna stop them just picking up the car and whack it on the back of some truck :roll:

    As said above u can invest into to some security to deter/slow down the thief. But if they want something they will simply take it.. without u realising after a certain time period! :roll:
