    I have bought a tracker for my M3 as it needs to have one installed for insurance, but there is no wiring diagram with it.
    It appears to be very simple as it only has 2 stripped wires, however it also has some wiring included in a small bag.

    Anyone ever fitted one of these?

    I heard that trackers needed to be fitted by a qualified installer or it could make the insurance void. However, don't quote me on that. It's like alarms, not very difficult to do yourself in an afternoon but they're meant to be installed by Thatcham qualified guys.

    Its only got 3 wires coming out of it, can't be that tricky.
    I installed a Clifford Concept 600 into my old Supra with intellistart and that was fine, so I know a bit about auto electrics.

    As long as tracker can contact the thing I guess its ok. I could always say it was on the car when I bought it.

    Subscription is something like £100 per year or £300 for life(or for the duration you own the car you activated it on)
