    Yes people have worked out how to fit it now but it means your factory fitted immobiliser will be bypassed which the insurance company won't like

    Don't believe there are any insurance approved remote start alarm/ immobilisers so even if you had one fitted it would still be a downgrade from what you have now

    pro accoustics in dewsbury/batley supply and fit remote start alarms but as previously said the chip from your spare key would have to be set into the car ignition, i have the same thing and as also previously said if a thief wants your car they are taking it by any means neccesary flatbed, towed or keys stolen through burglary etc

    Hi mate, clifford do an alarm called 650 mk2 that can have remote start added to it and its a thacham approved alarm, I used to have it on my mk4. If you remote start your car and the alarm gets triggered it shuts everything down and enabled the alarm. Its very smart
