    Nope, that's it John. The alarm in the Vec C/Signum is c**p!! As loud as a quiet thing on a quiet day in Quietville!

    I,m glad your alarm is **** mine is too, I thought I had gone deaf when I set mine off, I doubt it that you would hear it if you were in the car!!!

    Yep, like my previous Astra G. No mistaking when that (factory fit) alarm went off!

    I left my window down once (on my Signum) with the car parked on drive about 10-15m away. Alarm went off, didn't hear it. Only knew as my neighbour came and told me!!

    Think the idea with internal sirens is it's meant to be deafening to the offending little scrote in your car, not that a Vectra siren will bother them.
    I know some alarms I've fitted mounting the siren behind the dash & wiring it up to the horn were awsome!!! You'd hear the horn going off ****** loud & as you look out your window you'd see a trembleing wreck stumbling & falling out of the car.
