Default Which immobiliser?

Does anyone have any recommendations for/against any particular type or model of immobiliser/alarm? There seems to be quite a few options on ebay ranging from $99 - $300, are any better than others?

I used a 'rhinoco' unit in mine.
Seems to work ok but it's a PIA resetting it when ever you want to start the car after you have stopped it for a couple of minutes though!

Don't buy an eBay one
Alarms have a bad habit of fking up so eBay one makes it hard to return
Just find a momgoose dealer maybe
Or even ask your car insurance company who they recommend using

u also need to check your insurance company
most these days want a triple cut which is abit of a pain
just means more things to fk up
I don't fit alarms anymore but I do remove and throw out about 5 or so a year
I hate the buggers but u need to have one for insurance reasons that's y I try to tell customer sometimes its easier to fit immobiliser that comes with ecu but that's abit harder these days with the l98s

You also need some form of immobiliser for ADR compliance, so it's best to find one that's got Australian Standards approval - the Rhino and Mongoose units mentioned so far have this, so no worries there.

I'm planning on fitting a mongoose, since I know a distributor and want to support him, not someone on eBay.

Mongoose m80 series look good. 3 point immobiliser and microwave sensor option. Around $200 plus another $50 for microwave sensor.

Anyone using microwave sensors on theirs? Seems like the best way to catch unwanted hands reaching in!

Other option is Rhino Rav3 basically the same as the Mongoose but has some extra features like headlights on for 15 seconds when armed.

I just looked on ebay and the Rav3 was up on special for $149.

I got the sensor but found it didn't react soon enough for my liking if I recall rightly.

However it certainly does work as a cabin area access detection mechanism.

If you are thinking that option and looking to buy a sensor PM first as I'll sell the unit I have, assuming I can find it again.

Cheers

Steve

Thumbs up

I find that the Glock 9MM if used correctly is a very effective immobiliser. Once you pull the slide back and the system is armed (ohh that IS a good pun) it works a treat even from 100 mtrs away. It can be a bit noisy in some circumstances though, that being said everyone in the near vicinity seems to become very alert and for some reason the police turn up quite quickly without being called !!

I don't like the unwanted police attention so I went with a unit that is not quite as effective as the Glock.

That's not a bad model. The only issue with that particular model, if of the M variety, in my experience is that if someone introduces an F model in the near vicinity that is in heat mode, the M model starts to have interference issues and has been known to stop working efficiently.
