    a locked compound, a big dog and a gun.

    Honestly though, it depends on how determined they are. A wheel clamp, steering lock, clutch claw etc.

    There's some good lanes up by Farnham. Saw some guys doing some on motorbikes. Can't remember exactly where. On youtube tho.

    Disclok for the steering wheel (turn to full lock before putting it on to reduce the chance of the car being dragged successfully).

    Type in lz-10 for a mabers 10% discount.

    Mark it with Alphadots and put the stickers in obvious places.

    Pedal box / lock. MUST be a type which completely covers the pedals. If the thieves can still see the pedals they can cut the pads off and drive on the stumps, pedals can also be bent and used. Clutch claw is a waste of time.
