I caught some Feckin lowlifes sniffing around the wifes SXi last night. I caught one of the scum and I think he may be off school for a week or two as a result!.....anyway how can I make it look like it has the standard Vauxhall alarm fitted? can I just buy the hazard light switch with the flashing LED or is there a bit more to it????

Buy an LED and put it anywhere in view should make them think twice.

But Splash out on an Alarm as the scum will eventually break in.

the Vaux alarm was 250 i think - but that was from the factory.

I have a Toad alarm - bought after someone tried to smash the passenger side window.

I paid 291 all in - with tilt sensors etc from Sextons

hi, i am picking up my new corsa hopefully this week. wont have an alarm, i have seen the toad A850T from http://www.mobile-electronics.co.uk/cgi-bin/browse-no-frames.cgi?session=720502&view=group&group=toad-ins and have been told by them that it will work well with the existing key fob and immobiliser. what does every one think.

thanks

Try a Varad Security Scanner, it works with or without an alarm system, it projects a logo message "SECURITY" message on any surface inside your car. Check it out:
