Vehicle Security - Crook Lock?

Guys,

I am getting a bit worried about theft of D4's currently.

I have read about this on a few occasions recently ...

What do you recommend in terms of...

Crook Lock?
ECM Lock?
GPS Tracker?

Any suggested welcomed ...

I know if they want enough they will take it anyway .... Thumbs Up

I've got one of these:

Like you say, if they want it, they'll take it. This does provide a visual deterrent, though, so the hope is that it will put off the more casual scrote.

Sales of crooklocks are apparently booming as car thefts have risen 30% as scrotes use technology to steal modern cars.

I've got a tracker and a Disclock - a bit cumbersome but apparently virtually impossible to remove without the key

I have the understanding that crooks come armed with laptop, plugs and scanners the latter being the most worrying

Got the Stoplock a couple of weeks ago and can confirm it works as my wife couldn't unlock it one morning Very Happy , took me about 15 mins of fiddling to get the key in .
Returned it and bought a disklok , double the price but a bit more of a visible deterrent , also invested in the Ghost Immobiliser .

Another vote for Disklock
 When you are dead, you do not know you are dead. All of the pain if felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

I used a steering lock thing many years ago, but personally found it too much of an inconvenience. Even more so now with the Discovery being keyless start, as I can have the engine started almost as soon as the door is closed.

Personally I would sooner risk the inconvenience of having my Discovery stolen, rather than messing around with some great lump of metal every single journey.

Yes I have, and I am still not willing to put up with the inconvenience.

I found the 4 months of being without the D4 stressful as well as inconvenient. Plus ending up about 3k out of pocket. I've secured the OBD port and will do other mods but am starting to look at big visual deterrents as it will hopefully put them off before they smash any windows.

Like the idea of the custom port protection. What was your solution, Hardware17? Can you divulge without giving to much away?
