    Happy with standard just now.

    I can also highly recommend Toad. Had one in my last car no problems at all.

    Rmember the alarm is only as good as the fitter.

    Although i'm happy with the standard alarm i'd always recomend Sigma alarms an not because I fit them all day as I do other makes to

    They have a alarm out for every situation and seem to be very reliable. Yes they don't have the gimicks of a clifford but it does what it should do and protect all it needs to on the car

    can they be wired into your key mate, so you dont have to have a seperate fob???
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    Maybe there was a problem with the central locking on your car then or the way it was wired in. There's no reason with the wire you pick up the locking from that it would only unlock one door

    I don't know if it's already been said or not but any alarm is only as good as the installer
