My insurance company won't insure me for theft until I can prove my P reg GTi Mk3 is fitted with an immobiliser, I'm presumbing the one it has is the manufactured standard fitted one, anyone know what it is called?  :huh:

Yeah, someone else said that too, did your's have a certificate to say it had that one fitted? That's what the insurnce company want, or a note from a mechanic at a garage, seems a bit daft really!

Very daft!

unfortunatly i don't have any paper work with mine so i wouldn't know! mine says that on the key for my VR6, i'd assume it's the same on the GTi?...can you not just show them your key if that is the case?

A lot of the VW range came with the conlog alarm systems.

I think theres some info in the maintenance section or failing that i once saw some info that Boneybradley had gathered on them.

Conlog is the one ...

And mine had/has a certificate ??? just pop in to a garage, and give them a tenner to write you a note confirming it has one.

Direct line asked me for proof of this. The only thing I could find that stated it was the handbook so I sent that in and that was fine for them. Cant remember what page it was. They said it was classed as a transponder immobiliser I think. hope that helps

Cheers guys, unfortunatley I haven't got the handbook either, so I'll just get a mechanic to do a note!  :smiley:
