I'm getting a Disklok and a driveway post. It has immobiliser and alarm and I reckon I'll sign up to Sky Tag.

New tyres... Please don't tempt me to spend MORE money...
could be wrong, but I think with a 04 plate you need forward facing seats to pass the mot?

Disklok is a good start, anything to slow the toerags down, brake/clutch helps too, and anything else you can think of, including keeping it behind locked gates on the drive, but in the end if they want it bad enough it'll go, just make sure you've got good insurance and declare any mods!

a good set of mud terrains will do 40+k miles and still be good for the odd day off road, ally's are a lot lighter than wolf rims

I had no idea that "bonnet theft" was even a thing!

Me either, I'm thinking I might just sell up or lock it in a garage and never take it out.

Bonnet theft is just the start, many a person has awoken to find as they couldn't drive it off they just systematically stripped it down to the chassis on the drive...

Got into work one morning, and the company 110 had been stripped of doors, bonnet and floor mats! They left sat nav, high lift jack behind!

I have a 300tdi 90, and its battered and dented, not got a straight panel, thats probably its best anti theft feature.
