A pikey hoody type was chased from my golf club carpark having been caught trying to break in to it on sunday.

he wouldn't have got far as it has a tracker, but does anyone know if the porsche factory fit alarm includes an immobiliser ?

no, nothing, I can't imagine he was too pro as a bit broad daylight with too many people about, there are loads of flash cars in the carpark so worrying he chose mine which was amongst the most visible.

On the upside i had a go in a mates new m5 .... wow

It's more likely he was looking for things to steal from inside the car - one of my best friends is a copper and he explained things like removing not only the TomTom but also the rings the suction cup leaves on the windscreen etc.

To steal something like a 997 is hard work as the nearly all have tracking devices (courtesy of Insurance company requirements) and are factory fitted with an ECU / DME related immobiliser.

Apparently most high value car theft is to order and done by taking the keys from your house (shudder).

Sadly there are still the dipsh*ts who will try and break a steering column in the vain hope it'll hot wire :? :(
(this happened to a colleague's car while parked at an airport!).

My friend advises the best policy these days is leave nothing - not even a CD case or newspaper and certainly not a jacket, phone, satnav, briefcase etc in view.

Sign of the times..... :roll:
