Well last month 3 Z 3's were stolen.
13 3 series
|PLS| 1 M3
1 x 7 Series
3 x X5's

The words stolen with keys pops up in about 1 in 4.

Was surprised that my insurance company did not specify a Tracker . They said only if car was valued at over £35k!

To be honest after they told me that I thought should I bother with the fitment?

Coz I'm positive non of us really want our car back after it has been stolen and amp; recovered . I once had an Astra GTE16v returned after it had been taken for a ride around Blackbird Leys in Oxford!! You know - new tyres - clutch etc! You are always thinking whens the engine going to let go?

Interesting recovery figures though!

If someone wants your car bad enough, there's nothing that'll stop them. You can only make it difficult to try to discourage the chancers and joy-riders. Don't think that I'd want mine back if it had been stolen. I've got a Cat 1 alarm and use a steering lock. I'd only invest in a tracker if the insurance savings would pay for it.

My last car (911) had a Tracker fitted but it was going to cost money to have it reactivated when I bought the car. Norwich Union wouldn't give me a discount so I didn't bother. Seems to me the main beneficiaries of Trackers are the insurance company.

I suspect if someone can get round a Cat 1 alarm a Tracker isn't going to worry them too much.

What staggers me is why anyone would want to nick a Z3 in the first place! :D
