Let's do an experiment, with your car ropai. Leave the car at open area near shopping complex, leave the window open with the keys left at the ignition. It 'll will be interesting to see what people take, the car or the pioneer... hehehe Twisted Evil

yep, just did that this afternoon. i didn't have enough sleep & left the driver door open. about an hour later, one of my friend called me to tell me about the wide-open door.

i slowly walked to my car, and there it is - nothing stolen & car was still there. Cool

the point is, locks/alarms are just there to prevent honest people from being tempted to steal. if a thief really wants your car, there is no alarm system in the world that can prevent him from getting it. watched ocean's 13 recently?

the emphasis here is on 'really wants', there is not enough market value & demand for Accent for it to be a priority item on the thief's list. my car is not even 1 year yet, market value is at RM35k or less... stealing this car would be like stealing a SAGA from PROTON showroom...

and even a Porsche can be stolen from a police station nowadays, just let that sink in your mind for a while Smile

but please, do lock your car so that honest people wont be tempted to take it...

What ropai said is true... what kind of alarm system also cant prevent those who really wants your car. The only think alarm system took place in the market is just to give us a good night sleep.

Some will said "at least something" rather than "nothing".

yup, especially useful for forgetful people like me... I always forgetto lock my car at least once in 2 weeks. Luckily so far nothing had been taken from my car, but still worry one day my stuff or even worse my car stolen. Anyone have good alarm system to recommend?

2-way alarm is expensive is i check it out already. easily cost RM1500++ ... without voice module. if yes, add on RM300 to RM400.

anyway, can opt to go for radiostar as advertise @ zerotohundred. many ppl have install it but havent seem any accent install it. is a 2-way alarm and the cheapest u can find in the market.
