    S3 Security Options?

    I see no mention of an alarm/immobiliser on the Audi website. Does the S3 have an alarm as standard?

    I would guess it does, as my A3 has one!

    buy a disclock as well from halfords - costs around £80 but a very good detarant plus it does a good job!

    I don't really see how useful as disc lock is on a car that can only realistically be stolen with the keys or a trailer/low-loader...

    as i said - its a good deterant!

    plus the a3's have a motion tilt sensor on the car - try it next time you have the jack out, when the car is locked, jack the car and the alarm will sound!

    My Keys are in clear view - if someone comes into the house, they are available. I got wife and 2 kids, I rather they took the car than damaged either of those, and given the way these muppets are working these days.....
    Nothing to see here: Woofdoggy , move along please........

    line the inside of the disclock with felt - i have had mine for nearly 4 years and its perfect, hasnt marked the wheel at all and sits perfectly behind the passenger seat, not making a noise!
