basically, the bloke i bought the car off put an aftermarket immobiliser in it, where you need to hold 1 part of it into the car park for a few seconds before you can start the car. its a pain in the arse.

what other sort of immobilisers are there? or should i just get it taken out? also how much would i be likely to pay to have it ripped out profesionaly? thanks alot guys

I know that removing a complete clifford alarm cost me ?40 by an authorised dealer.

you could take it out yourself but you run the risk of not being able to start your car.
most immobilisers come with alarms these days. get yourself a toad/clifford/cobra

bare in mind that you wont be able to claim the alarm on the insurance policy as its not been properly fitted and supplied with a certificate. :) just a warning
