    Your probably better off just getting a clifford or a toad alarm. You can get the insurance approved ones for about £275 - £300 or maybe more depending on where you go!!

    Same as what Chris said, but worth mentioning, if you go for an alarm, only get a thatcham approved one. Will help with the insurance too. All thatcham alarms systems have to be installed by a thatcham approved installer. So at least you know a proper job will be done too! Wouldn't bother asking Vaux.
