Hi there, I'm a new member and just upgraded to a Impreza 

I'm just wondering what the best security to get?

im thinking of getting a disklok but unsure what size to get as people say S is too small and M is too big 

and also thinking of getting a Tracker with remote fuel cut off

any help would be appreciated, thanks

That explains why putting mine in the garage didn't drop my insurance. I was always told it should but atleast it's not just me. 

Do a mr bean and put a padlock on the door. 

From reading the manual the Subaru system seems more than enough even has a sound sensing option. Been looking for a Tracker but had terrible Experiances with them at work showing things are in different country's to what they are and flattening the Battery fully after a few days standing.

that would be good put the garage as my bikes in aha that's my problem 

plus cheaper insurance to keep on road some how 

Explanation I had from insurance co. was that in a closed / locked garage no one can see the thieves working on the car / bike so they can take time etc - on street they have more chance of being seen trying to break into car

More cars are taken by break ins and stolen keys than by the car being stolen by force nowadays. If someone wants it badly enough they will get it one way or another so i wouldn't worry too much.

Plus the alarms nowadays are a darn sight better than the older ones

It's all a load of backwards ballox! As Tidgy said if they want it they'll have it. 

You could spend as much as the cars worth on security and still have it gone and stripped in hours.  Just go as best you can to put them off.  Proper noise and wheel brace etc.  O yes and keep your keys secure or hidden.

Tell insurance EVERYTHING. Don't give them the excuse.

I'm still thinking about the James Bond electrified system! !Removed! them !Removed!'s :chair:

I quite like the idea of a contract free Tracker like this one .

If someone manages to get past my security system and take my car . I'll know where it is and me and a few mates can go and "retrieve" it without bothering the police or my insurance company [emoji6]

To add what Xander mentioned, but I would go with cheap Google Android phone with pay as you go or even cheapest pay monthly for internet access. Default google Tracker is good enough, but for more feature heavy or precise tracking just get Lookout Security app. Their free account give enough features to track the phone. Just hide the phone somewhere where it can least likely be found and that's it. For more stress free, that you don't need to charge it day in and out, wire it to power outlet (I'm not an electrician, but shouldn't be hard to do that) for constant charging (again as mentioned by Xander :) ).

Was quite often thinking doing it to my scirocco (or whatever I was thinking on buying few years back). Obviously iphone would work fine, but I was never a big fan of their GPS and map systems ever since they f***ed up with their Apple Maps app :D
