    I've started to lock the car when its left in the street and I'm also trying to get in the habit of not leaving the key in the ignition.

    Times have certainly changed - my Z spent years outside in London with never any trouble.....mind you, it rusted !:(

    The police did say there was a strange Anglo-French Ninja in red and black loitering!

    That was my cousin Simon - he's burly and thick-necked and lives near Croydon (Wallington).

    my little update to this -
    I bought one of these:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-Real...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
    and installed it cunningly in my car.
    I've also setup a copy of the traccar project (www.traccar.org) on a spare netbook on my broadband and I can continuously track where the car is (and where I am, via my mobile, but I hope I'll never need that bit).

    The traccar projects got lots of cool features and seems a very cheap way of having some decent tracking & alerting. Pretty easy to set up if your interested, or I could open my server up privately to a few if you wanted to give it a go.

    Thanks for sharing, looks good JB, great price too. I've just bought one.:thumbs:

    When out n about the car is rarely out of sight, I go to pubs with a garden backing on to the car park :D.. At night, its tucked away in the garage with other cars parked in front of the garage doors, but I've been a little on edge thinking of upcoming events especially after hearing of that Jag stolen at Donnington.

    Should arrive Friday :thumbs:

    A modest weekly subscription should cover it.

    Yeah, certainly need to pay for the sim. I'm paying £5 per month.
    I looked at one subscription service and it was just running an installation of the traccar project.
    So I'm not sure I'd be willing to pay much for that as a subscription.

    Great, thanks JB. Arrived today. Plan to finish off working on brakes then will go for install.


    I've been thinking of putting one my Mrs's handbag.. She'll never find it in there and she's been going out a lot lately since I got my Z..
