    IIRC.. the barrels on these locks are screwdriver proof.. they just continually turn...

    what i have seen is where they dig a screwdriver into the doorskin under the lock housing in an attempt to pullit out or to access the solenoid control rods...

    on both occasions they couldn't take the car...just caused a lot of damage..

    lol, the alarm is completely pointless, no way will you hear that if your indoors. you could always upgrade your door handles to chrome, you can order the set to exclude the key hole. . They would have a problem screwdrivering it then.
    Just an idea

    some bright spark probably thought it would be different having it in the boot rather than the engine bay, how wrong they were.

    A Vauxhall technician told me a few years ago (after I mentioned how **** the alarm was in my previous Vectra Elite) that Vauxhall moved the sounder a few times after having problems with it getting wet and causing problems! I'm sure they could just have made it waterproof somehow or even better fitted a bigger sounder!

    I think an old post mentioned that you couldnt upgrade the sounder due to the canbus. the only option would be to get a different system fitted.
