    Last night some idiots decided to scribe on my car, luckily it was the silver chrome strip where the electic roof joins the windscreen. Not sure how easy it is to fit a new one.

    Anyway I am looking at getting an aftermarket alarm as the audi one is not very loud. By the time the alarm woke me up it had reset to just hazards flashing.

    Has anyone else fitted an aftermarket alarm, if so have you had any problems with it interfering with the existing factory fitted alarm.

    Cheers in advance

    Ban bloody football to start with
    as there a bunch of over paid wankers
    that would ease the football hooligans ,
    as for the alarm never fitted one after market but would have thought any of the big alarm people TOAD / CLIFFORD etc would be your best bet

    If anyone has any ideas on aftermarket alarms, as the audi one is soooooo quiet it doesn't wake me up at night.

    If it weren't footie it would be something else

    I run with a Viper 500 with sensors which detect anyone near mine and the alarm lets the whole of the neighbourhood know someones near,unlike the **** poor casio watch down a well Audi one.

    Does the alarm interfere with the Audi alarm.

    I once had a Clifford Alarm fitted to an Astra Sri, I had terrible problems as the Vauxhall alarm used to arm itself along with the clifford alarm.

    Clifford now have can bus compatable alarms that runs off the audi one - and you get all the clifford accesories and alarm sirens but you get to use your audi fob to control it.

    give Gap security a call as they come to you. never used them before though or you can go on the clifford website and look for authorised dealers in your area and get them to fit the canbus alarm.

    Problem is the louder & more noticable the alarm, it almost paints a target on some cars, like proximity sensors, people who are pissed or hoodies, which are usually the idiots who do the damage, think of it as something telling them not to touch, so immediately this creates a psychological mechanism within there thick head that says to them "I will touch what I want & nobody is gonna tell me otherwise", so its a fine line between loud/obvious & discreet/hidden, difficult really as there are people that would heed the warning of loud alarm etc & others that would see it as a challenge, where as others would maybe leave a car with a quiet alarm alone.

    I have a clifford Concept fitted to my Van with the sensor like Vorhees mentioned, If anyone stands too close to the windows for a period of time then it sounds a warning alarm, a real annoying one aswell BUT its loud and is enough to alert you....when it goes off though it sounds like Blankety blank.
    My dad had one fitted last year to his Audi for £270 supp/fitted.It has the autostart aswell like mine which is handy for them winter mornings!!

    Interesting, given it bypasses the immo circuitry to start & stay running.

    Hi,I have an A4 cabrio with a Falcon GSM Alarm fitted.It has dual shock sensors and microwave features and being gsm has a built in sim card so when triggered the car rings you up to tell you!!!! Also if it does get stolen with the keys you can ring up the alarm and command the car to immobilize! Cool!! Plus you can use it as a hands free kit,as it has its own phone number,just have to keep the sim card in credit.When using microwave mode you have to turn off the audi microwave mode (switch in drivers door),apart from that no problems.
