Wow, what a useful thread.

I’ve just gotten myself an EQS and am also having the Ghost II/Pandora thought train.
My friend's rangerobber got stolen and he has stuck both on it now and has been rewarded with a 3k insurance premium
 
The Autowatch Ghost has a carjack option. That is if the door is opened the car will stall when next put in gear unless the code is entered. I dont use the option myself but its there if were to move to London ;-)

How do you know about this? It doesn't seem to be documented anywhere?
 
For various reasons, making the decision has dragged out and Pandora is no longer on the options list for me.

Has anyone had any experience with or currently using a Starline S series security system. From the research I’ve done so far it looks to be the same as a Pandora system but with a reduced price tag. Plenty of add on’s too.

I understand some people don’t want to discuss what security systems they are using, but if anyone is willing to share their experiences that would be much appreciated.

Can I ask why you have discounted Pandora Richie?
The Starline systems look interesting.

After contacting two of the closest authorised installers on multiple occasions (4 or 5 times each), I had zero returned calls or emails.
I sent a message to HQ in London and a gentleman called me back within 10 minutes which was promising. Without hesitation he told me the best model for my car was their ‘black edition’, it is a wireless system with all the bells and whistles, excuse the pun.
He informed me that the probable reason for others not returning my calls or messages was they would rather earn their money by easier methods/jobs than the particular Pandora model I was enquiring about. Which is understandable, but at least have the decency to return my calls and let me know.
The gentleman from HQ was very knowledgeable and was happy to keep pointing me towards their flagship model with a price tag of £2,100 fitted, plus I’d need to leave the car with them for 2 days. I told him that I wasn’t wanting to spend that much on a system and 2 days in the big smoke wasn’t of interest. He was sharp to end the conversation after I asked for advice on another options/models, I suspect because he also wanted an easy installation.
He since hasn’t returned any calls or emails, you could say he’s Ghosting me (see what I did there?).

One of my work colleagues has a Starline security system on Range Rover Sport SVR, so I thought I’d put it to the board and see if anyone else has experience with them.
 
^ I can see why Pandora isn't on your wish list now. Over £2k for an additional security system is a but much. Not great pre sales either going on your experience.
Understandable to consider in high car crime areas like London/Birmingham/Manchester but not so much in my part of the country, or yours I imagine.
Thanks for coming back on this.
 
My thoughts exactly, Roger.
I know you can never say never, but I tried explaining my car doesn’t get left often and when it does it isn’t in high theft areas so most of the top end tech is over the top for me, not to mention out of my price bracket.
 
Looks like Ghost did its job on Marcus Rashford's Roller.
Fast forward to 1min 25 secs to see why the car wouldn't start.
