    Default Whats the best Car Security Alarm.....

    ... on the market today ?

    I dare say that the Vectra's security is pretty good... but I havent bought a car alarm for over 20 years !!

    Whats the latest gadgets I should be looking at ?

    Text Alerts ?
    Anti-Car Jacking ?
    Vehicle Tracking via Web Browser ?
    Lots of buttons and flashing lights ?
    Microwave proximity alerts ?

    Any advice ???

    I had the Toad AI606 and it done everything you needed, could fit ****loads of additional sensors and triggers... cliffords new gen ones are **** hot as well, as you can program them via a PC and software to set thresholds etc, but again, that's something else to go wrong...

    i'd get a toad again...

    alternative is a meta systems alarm to uprate the thatcham rating in your current alarm, they are more or less stealth, but have all the same features and also come recommended from various sources...

    if your looking at tracking via a web page, then your looking more at a tracker system than an alarm alone...

    proximity alarms are good if set up right, otherwise kids find them amusing...

    what you have to get though is...

    "Get back you *******s... i'll break yer legs"

    It's already a Thatcham 1 in the Vectra if it has the alarm as well (as opposed to just the immobiliser) so you won't improve the rating, only add on extra protection - which is obviously no bad thing, but I doubt if it'll help with insurance for instance as it's already Thatcham 1.

    Almost guaranteed to get your car back with one of those tracker things... personally i'd rather that the car was wrecked after being stolen though, so I'd probably just stick to the bog standard alarm.
