    Hi Fran, thanks for the message. Its been a while since I was lurking around here! I did have the alarm and the battery, think that it was about £80 from Audi... People kept coming up with the alarm problem (beeps from the back of the car, right ?), but nobody took it. For some reason, mine...

Will fit straight on your car, well protected anchor points and very solid. I think it is called a clip on high or something...
