    Steering lock extra security

    Thinking of picking up something extra to lock steering wheel as an added piece of protection. And if so any ideas of products best place to buy price etc.

    A guard told a mate of mine a big lock and chain is hard to beat.

    tilt seat forward and a big feck off chain and padlock locking seat to steering wheel . makeing it awkard as possible for them but easy enough to remove for you .


    i have 12mmx1.5m square ling chain here €32

    padlock , prob shutter style (sliding bolt ) best bet €25 upwards pending quality wanted


    a battery angle grinder is our enemy or the lil scrote uusing it .

    if the really want it they jus knock on the door with a gun/hachet



    driveway post, sensor light , secret kill switch or remove a fuse or the likes so she wont start prob best bet .


    deterrent is best angle of attack (or a shotgun out the window)
    18 seconds !!
    Them wheels are ridicoulus , but they look class !

    Never drive home! Keep doing left turns and go round and round, had a few followers myself recently.

    Decent alarm with anti hijack and an auto lock steering wheel lock, one that covers the whole wheel is very good.

    Not sure how common Gary but I’ve been followed a few times in the last few years.
    Last one was stopping for milk in the garage near the house, fella pulled up behind me and was scoping the car out then went on the
    Phone while still checking the car.
    She got back in and the minute I moved he was glued to my bumper.
    He didn’t get out of his car either in the Garage.

    So i did my left left trick and he tore off then the other way after a lap.
    im not here for a long time,im here for a good time colin mcrae. r.i.p.

    Had a turbo, WRX , STI , 2 WR1s and a legacy B4
