Security

Tracker & RAC Trackstar can be fitted by your local approved dealership, who can probably do the Cat 1 alarm as well.

Seimens Trakbak is fitted by a VSIB registered installer who will come to you.

Cost depends on level of protection, but budget a grand for a good set up, and don't forget the annual cover charge - save a bit by getting the install plus one year, then shell out for the life cover next year.

How much ...

One of my mates has just had a trakker fitted to his scooby. It's one of the cheaper types that uses the mobile phone network rather than GPS.

Unit cost around £150, installation and set-up was £300, annual subscription is £100 though you can buy lifetime subscription for about £250.

Cost

I don't know about the new units, so I can't comment.

But I would recommend spending as much as you can on security systems, and don't rely on one. What's the point on having the most marvellous missile in all creation if some backward capped retard can have it away for resale or urban rallying.?

Unfortunately, I can't afford the 24 hour sniper watch, let alone the court fees afterwards. :aka47:

Sad thing is, if they really want it, they'll have it. All you can do is make someone else's pride & joy look an easier target. :(

I'll ask my mate tomorrow what make/model it is and where he got it from and post the info on here then.

Have you tried your local car audio specialist - a lot of those sell and fit alarms and trackers.

When I inquired about a tracker, the insurers said cat one alarm "must have" Tracker if you want, would reduce premium by about £50, simple maths job over percieved risk of theft, to value of car, so didnt bother

Tracker

Hi phrozen

I got the same when trying to insure my skyline - most companys asked for a tracker along with pre-requisite cat 1 alarm/immobilser

Now I would like to have a tracker for extra security but even more expense so luckily I was put in touch with Tett Hamilton who don't seem to request a tracker

May be worthwhile looking around. Also as to getting a tracker the insurers may have a contact for you but they might not be the cheapest or you could have a look in some car magazines.

Good luck!
