    Ultimate theft protection - Autowatch Ghost

    Has anyone had an Autowatch Ghost CAN immobiliser fitted. How much are they and are they a bit of a faff in day to day life ? They say it defeats all 'code grabbers' but you can use an iPhone to open the car so not sure just how secure they really are. Any thoughts appreciated as I am...

    car theft - heads up

    Not sure if you have seen this but if it saves one car its worth it.

    Dashcam theft?

    Anyone know anyone who has had their dashcam stolen? I've heard of sat navs being stolen but not dashcams. Yet dashcams are mounted on a sucker mount in the same way and are approx the same value. However it's not the value of my cam I'm too worried about its the glass damage and hassle.

    Glueing down the 3 pointed star to prevent theft

    Just noticed my neighbours 3 pointed star has been swiped from the grill of his new E Class. It looks like it was held in by a quarter turn and probably took 5 seconds to steal, as the grill is completely undamaged. I have a C Class on order and am thinking this will have a similar...
