    As I draw near the end of my 90 refurbishment thoughts turned to a quality alarm system only to find very few alarm install companies now in existence (here in county Durham anyway), does anyone have positive experiences with installers (may be a national franchise) that I can make enquiries with ?
    Any assistance welcomed

    I have one of these fitted to my daily driver as the factory fitted Sigma car alarm/immobiliser is very poor and often fails. A quick search on their site http://www.clifford.co.uk/Where_To_Buy_SmartStart.html shows there's a mobile installer in Stockton called
    D RAM
    Stockton on Tees, TS18 1JJ County of Durham
    Phone: 07472 099141

    The Clifford system is very effective and can be set up to provide very 'tight' alarm/immobiliser security

    I know that this does not answer your question but I would invest in a decent disc lock or pedal lock and a tracker before I bothered with an alarm.

    People generally ignore car alarms, I know I do. Save your money and put it toward a tracker....at least you may get it back when someone takes it.

    I know I wouldn't ignore my alarm going off I do have "other" security features, the alarm is an efficient way to get the central locking to operate with a fob

    The lack of installers is due to the lack of cars on our roads that dont come with alarms out of the factory.

    Central locking, mine doesn't even have wind-up windows!

    That's all well and good if you're in earshot, otherwise don't expect anyone else to give a flying.
