Saw that on FB too and couldn't believe it - it would give me flashbacks to checking under my car during the days of the IRA!!!

What really scares me is how easy it is for these thieving [email protected][email protected]$ to get away with it! I only wish there was an affordable, effective, subscription free tracker available for us to protect our cars with!

SIM card Trackers do not need to be expensive. Hard wired ones are less than £10.

Battery powered are more expensive but not out of reach. https://www.ebay.co....MYAAOSwyP5Z6J9S
