    Short of ripping the car to pieces the answers NO.

    There's no "one" place these things are fitted and they are usually fitted so that they can't be found easy

    Short of working out what makes fitted and getting in contact with that company giving them all your details

    Also if you want it working expect to pay around £120 a year

    I don't think any car is supposed to say it has a tracker fitted, as the car thief would just look for it straight away :roll:

    Very good point and something I missed before, we don't fit stickers

    If its an ex-Vauxhall car their demos often have these stickers fitted, I think its just a deteratn tbh.

    The dealership i worked for actually had to have all company cars and demos worth more than £15k fitted with a tracker as a part of the company insurance, so it's more than possible yours has one, whether the dealer you got it from had a similar deal or they just stuck a sticker on as a deterrant is anyones guess!
