    Recommend a Car Alarm!

    Hello,

    My Astra GSi got stolen the other day but thankfully it has been recovered and I should have it back in a few weeks.

    After reading some info about how crap the standard vauxhall alarm is and how the boot isnt alarmed in these cars Ive decided to upgrade the alarm system.

    What I would like to know is which alarm systems are best and why?

    Many thanks all.

    Probably a budget in mind would help? Expect Autosparks to know

    Better off trying tho. And if it slows them down it will give you time to run out side with a axe and they wont come back then

    Bizarre this recent spate of GSI robs...

    12 months ago, everyone on here would have said that the standard alarm is shit hot... MK4 has ALWAYS been a piece of wazz to get into, but not usually drive away..

    Whats changed?
    I no longer have a Sig

    The ability to drive off in the car with out the key , But not all theiving scum know how ,So no key is needed just lock damage ,So you realy need a good CAT1 alarm fitted correctly like Autosparks alredy said even better still a tracker ,Because if the profesional theiving scum want youre pride and joy they'll take it no matter what alarm you have fitted they will get round it but it will delay them and buy you time ,But the tracker will lead to your car being returned and maybe them getting a jail sentance ,

    But this only realy apllies to GSI's coupe turbo's ect ,Not the norm Astra G
    for which a good CAT1 alarm will do along with the standard VX alarm (if fitted that is ) as it only seems to be the top end Astra G's being knicked and stripped
