Default anti-theft security

Who here uses a Club or other type or wheel lock device?

Club is close to useless in the eye of a pro. They can just cut the steering wheel rim and remove the club. I read once in the newpaper that some lady had an immoblizer and the theft try to steal her can and rip up the entire steering column and ICBC won't cover it for some odd reason. Hope you can get one of those biometric starter for the car. The euro spec A8 from Audi have this and it require a finger print before the car can start.

The club is useless, I have personally ripped one off of a lady's car who lost her keys, and it only took me about 5min.

I think that it is necessary to have an immobilizer, and probably a hood and trunk pin as well, if not dual shock, then glass break sensors as well.

Derek,

It's not a wise idea to post what anti-theft security system you are using on a site like this. There are thefts that browse through the site to see what suit them best
