    Default 2002 GSi - alarm system

    A few questions on the factory fitted alarm on a 2002 vintage GSi:

    1) Don't suppose it's got any approvals to reduce insurance premiums?

    2) The red flashing LED to the right of the stereo is really hard to see from outside the car - has anyone added an additional LED elsewhere in the car so it's more visible and more of a deterrent?

    3) Many yers ago, Halfords used to do stickers that said "this car is alarmed and immobilised". Halfords don't do them anymore, so has anybody come across anything similiar on their travels - can't beat an obvious deterrent.

    They, and many other insurance companies should already know this.

    All the info is to hand.

    ^^^ what he said. The fact that the whole range has factory fitted Thatcham Cat 1 aproved alarm/immobiliser will already be accounted for in the insurance grouping.

    I bet if you look on ebay or similar, you'll be able to find some decals that are suitable.
