mfspolo: No, there is no monthly charge for LoJack. They have an additional part of the system that can be added called "Early Warning". It will notify your cell/pager/email/etc if your car is moved w/o the "sensor pass" supplied w/ the system. It's pretty cool. So it's like having an alarm, away from your car. So you could notify the police sooner. I'd look into it by checking at your local BMW dealer, or www.lojack.com ...! After it was installed, I felt a "calm" come over me.
oh damn. Another McDonalds M3! J/K bro. I was thinking of getting the same combo, but change my mind in the last minute. You're in Ontario 909?
I heard LoJack is useless these days. My insurance is already cheap without LoJack. Just be a good driver. It paid off.
NickACS: To be honest, my salesman hooked me up w/ LoJack when I bought the car. I believe (if my eyes read me right), it was about $500.00, but I'm not sure. I know that he lowered the car to factor in the LoJack so that I'd be paying the same price. As for the Early Warning system, it's $250.00 as a one time fee....or you can choosed to pay annually $110.00, or monthly $9.99. So there are a range of payment options.
BMW_M3_Power: Yep, Ontario 909 here! I know insurance isn't as bad, but I got it for peace of mind. Though BMW theft isn't big around here, it just gives me a safer feeling to have it. I'm already paranoid about car theft ever since a civic of mine was stolen. Then again, Honda/Acura theft has been on the rise because the market is strong for parts off of them, but still...paranoia I guess! Who's your insurance through?
Well I'll only be 24 in feb., and I have one ticket on my record. Maybe it won't be so bad, but when you give me the # to the insurance place, I'll see what they say. How do you like your KW's? I have some on order at D2Technik, but I wanted to know your feedback on them. ARe they easily adjustable.
