    GPS Tracking on my A5

    Hey, bought a 10 plate A5 Sportback 2 weeks ago from near Audi. I know it was the dealers managers car. I received a call from an 0161 number today telling me I have a GPS tracker in my car and asked whether the dealership mentioned this. They didn't. He went on to say that demo cars are required to have a tracker fitted.

    He then gave me the option to have it activated for about 130 p/m.

    Is this suspicious in any way? Or is it legit? If legit, is it a good deal? Im assuming it brings my insurance premium down too.

    Just rang it and an automated voice said - welcome to cobra nav track

    So I'm guessing its genuine as Cobra is Audi's own tracking service.

    Just double check/confirm with the supplyig dealer though.

    From what i've seen, its not worth it from an insurance perspective. I have one in mine & it was only going to make a difference of £20-£30 on the premium.

    Personally, I doubt if I would want any car back after some thieving scum have ragged it to death either.
    ...... Now this one's MUCH better!...
