    Then @blue beasty and @Dippypud I vote leave it, shows how useless some security devices can be.

    Cheers

    A few ideas.
    Few of us live in a gated community, but if you live in a cul de sac the toerags have to both get in and get out, if small enough it can seriously hamper their manoeuvrings. Helps if you have nosey neighbours.
    For long term off-the-road vehicles that you cannot put in a building, take both the spare wheel and another wheel off, leave it on axlestand. Preferably the wheel furthest from the road, much harder to tow away, again as others have suggested, putting the steered wheels on full lock and locked with steering wheel lock
    If your car is Sorned, check out SORN insurance, it is cheap and will cover you for as long as you want, I think, certainly 6 months.
    As for the guy who had his truck nicked from his mate's drive, and got no payment. I have never heard of an insurance that does not allow you to spend a night away from home with your vehicle. If they tried it, I would suggest the insurance ombudsman. I cannot believe this was hidden in any small print

    Some little ****(s) have tried to have my 90 off the drive. Disklok was a little bit mangled but thankfully didn't give in. Now added gear lock (x-defend) plus Yale shed alarm (but for some reason that gives false alarms when the sun shines through!).

    Good that your security worked, well done.
