Mk3 Security - Newbie advice sought.
« on: 05 January 2019, 08:57 »
Hi all.  First post.  (Well second after saying hi in newbie forum)

I finally got me a VR6.  I want to keep it and realise old cars are too easy to steal.  Whats the best options I have to combat this. 

It came with a full closure alarm/imobiliser.  Its pretty cool and shuts all windows and sun roof and locks all doors.  But cool and good are not the same. 

I don't have a garage.  Live in an ok area.

In the past I have owned an RS Turbo and that had this permanent gear stick lock drilled through the chassis professionally.  Are these any good?   Someone mentioned getting a fuel pump switch that I guess breaks the circuit the same as taking the fust out.  Switch would be hidden.  This a good option? 

How about trackers / GPS.  Seem bloody expensive.  Be cheaper to bung an iPhone 4 in there with Find my fiends active.  Or am I missing the point. 

Any advise appreciated.

If your alarm is decent and has immobiliser then maybe just add a disklock?
