the best alarm for the R56S

Im thinking of getting an alarm for my R56S but i have no idea what specs a good alarm should have. Can some one direct me to a solution that he has used and is satisfied with?

Its called. "Keep your key in your pocket" & not near the front door to your house or in a key box. Any thief going above the protection your key will give you, is going to take your can no matter what you do.

Correct me if i'm wrong, doesn't the R56S have a standard alarm anyway!? Unless you want some fancy feature, why upgrade? As Tabintab has said, thieves target keys

Fancy features like what?
If thieves target only keys, then im wondering whats the use of an alarm?

Back to what I originally said, is your standard alarm not enough? Correct me if i'm wrong, R56(S) models had standard alarms fitted?

I had an R56 S (2006) previously and it had alarm as standard factory fit which is why I questioned it.

If you go on the MINI website and do a used car search, the standard features list all specify "remote control alarm"....

Nope, I had one of the first off the line, EJ56 Y** 18/11/2006.

I have no more to say on this subject. IMHO you have a standard alarm, if you don't, well its for you to find out why and get yourself one should you so wish.

Other R56 S Owners please help the OP.
