    you wont get a decent alarm with an immobiliser fitted for that price. realistically youre looking at least double that for a basic CAT1 alarm fitted by a professional. cheaper if you can get a friend or you have the knowhow to do it yourself.

    the best way to protect a car like a 106 from thieving gits is invest in a steering wheel lock such as the disklok.


    they can be had for £50 i think and is the best deterrent money can buy for your budget. alarms dont bother thieves these days whereas a lock like the one above will deter the average joe chav from even thinking abobut being able to drive away with it long before they go smashing any windows!

    Totally agree, a disc lock will be far more effective, make sure its a proper one, not a cheap copy.
