Hi all,

Anyone know of a good place in Canberra/Qbn, where I can get an alarm installed?

I don’t mind paying a bit extra, just as long as they do a good job.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have the alarm already? .. or purchase and install?

Speak to Kev at Canberra Total Service and Repair in Belconnen 6251 3888, he’s great with alarm/immobiliser installs, … tell him Damien sent you and you’ll get 10% off

Otherwise speak to Adam or Wazza at BDL in Fyshwick

I’ve spent a fair bit of money at BDL in Fyshwick over the years – and their work has always been excellent.

However, I haven’t been impressed with the Mongoose immobiliser/alarm system they sold me. It is supposed to auto-arm after 30 secs (the law I believe) but often it is more like 20 secs and when it arms you then can’t use the same button to lock the car – you need to disarm then re-arm/lock. This is especially frustrating because the remote doesn’t seem very powerful and I often have to press and point a fair bit for it to pick up the signal.

I’ve never had anything stolen from my car until I got this system. Didn’t realise the car didn’t lock one day and the carpark was done over – they took the iPod from my glovebox which is permanently hooked up to my sound system (a really nice hidden install from BDL).

pay BDL Car Stereo in Fyshwick a visit, they will look after you
