    The alarm may go off but if they want it they will take it. Even if it means taking the keys from your home

    Park it in gear, that will help if its towed.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    If your car is worth more than £5000 then consider a tracking installation
    Once the car is under £2000 in value have it removed (the annual subscription will cost more than the insurance difference)

    However, if your car was stolen, would you want it back?
    Having seen the state some come back in and all the hassle involved I don't think it's worth it

    My first car was stolen after owning it for just 3 months, leaving it parked for less than 5 minutes, discovered by the Police (helps when your neighbour is a big cheese) about 3 hours later
    I asked if I should bring the keys, to which the response was "Don't bother"

    Get one of these from Maplin (often found on ebay even cheaper); no monthly fees, you just put a SIM in it and whenever you text it it sends back its location, accurate to within 5 metres.

    How did the "big cheese" help?

    Interesting, but they don't advise what the power source is and what the expected battery life is
    Not sure it could be hidden inside the car easily
    Equally, if it was activated, would it be silent?
