Alarm And Insurance


Recommended Posts

The standard lex has apparently got a good alarm and immobiliser as standard, however whilst getting insurance quotes Adrian Flux let slip that they do not take standard fit alarm/immobilisers into consideration when quoting.

Is there any point in installing a new alarm system?

Is the standard system actually as good as people say?

Is it a hard thing to fit or get a specialist in?

Are tracker devices worth the on going expense?

As ever I appreciate your opinions!!

They don't take it into consideration? That's weird - whenever I used to get quotes from them they were quite happy that is was an approved Cat 1 system? So are they saying you should spend more on an aftermarket solution as that's random if so!

Hmm well this is what i am unsure about.

They did ask what cat. the standard fit is unit is but I was not sure TBH. maybe this is why they didn't take it into consideration?

Ah right ok mate yeah it's Cat 1 - there's a PDF knocking around somewhere on here with all the details so they have to accept it as Cat 1 - I'd have thought with the mods you're planning on doing they can only really insist on a tracker but that's worst case - I never had to :)

Here we go:

Toyota (Inc Lexus)
Talm 001
TC2 – 1076/0499

Look for that section and it lists them all as Cat 1 :winky:

Flux are just being bellends and using this as an excuse to charge more - they've known for years it's a Cat 1 as we all have to keep telling them everytime we call!

Thanks Aido, Just got off the phone and all they needed was me to say it was Cat1, then that considered.

Quote of £670 Comp. all mods declaired, like for like repair etc, I will get a re-quote from SKY I am sure they can beat £670 as that is about what they wanted for a Supra swap.
