    The standard factory fitted A3 alarm (HELP)

    wanted to check how loud my alarm is so i sat inside and armed it then tried starting the engine and off went the alarm, it's not even that loud.

    it would have to be REALLY quiet for anyone to hear the alarm go off. is there away you can change the loudness?

    help much appreciated.

    cheers.

    Lets face it peeps, in this day and age, alarm or no alarm, if someone is gonna break into your car, THEY WILL! They will at least need your carkeys though, to drive the thing away with the immobiliser in place.

    When was the last time you heard a car alarm and done something about it?

    exactly. Car alarms are more of a pain in the arse than anything else. They go wrong, and they wake you up in the middle of the night.

    If my car was nicked, I'd rather not be aware of it going on, and I especially wouldn't want it back afterwards....

    Agreed. The immobiliser is much more use, though it does mean the scumbags might mug or burgle you for the keys.
