Welcome mate, I would say a Tracker is a must...

My brother had a lovely silver import WRX, not sure what year but not the Bug Eye.
After two weeks of having it, it was stolen, and found attached to a wall minus the Tow-rags that nicked it! :evil:

It was a company one, and he got a new car 02 WRX Blue (In my opinion not as nice as his first one, but still a lovely car) but they insisted on a Tracker.

At his choice he also got a bolt fitted through the gear columb that you lock the car in reverse with, cost a few hundred to fit but piece of mind I say.

I'll be getting both when I get mine!!
Best of luck with insurance, I hear TESCO's are hard to beat, esp with an online quote...

PPP on a wrx does take it to 265 bhp as stated above and yes they do recommend 18 inchers, found it out today.

put a ppp on an STi and you get 305 bhp + the water injection.

Depending on insurance companies, L&V dont mind about mods.

Borrowed the sidc mag from the garage, not sure if this is the one mentioned.

"DIPOL gearlock", has lots of european accreditationsinc sold secure.

I know there is another that you put the car in reverse and a lock goes in through the passenger side of the tunnel and locks it there, make unknown, maybe same

Hi Cat,

Sorry I did not reply sooner, I will see if I can get the details from my brother for the one he has fitted.

Very simple to use, and quite effective from my understaning.

All the best
Matt
