Autowatch Ghost

Yesterday, I had Autowatch Ghost fitted by Chris Preston of Veil Tuning, Northampton (one of the few genuinely authorised Autowatch installers in the UK). Chris is the 'resident expert' on the Focus RS forum, where they have a Group Buy for this immobiliser.

As James has said on here there doesn't seem to be anything Chris doesn't know about car electronics, and I am very happy both with his installation and the operation of the system, which is very simple. I am also grateful to Chris for fitting me in at short notice because I am going away and leaving the car unattended (hence the Ghost!), especially as it turned out he was virtually straight off the plane after a holiday due to a very delayed flight! Chris has done so many of these that he can 'do them in his sleep' - well he has now almost literally proved that!! Laughing

Thanks also to James for his helpful input on this. I don't want to preempt anything, but I believe that a Group Buy may materialise on here in due course. If it does, I recommend any other 'paranoid' owners like me to get it fitted. It's the best immobiliser currently available, at a very reasonable price, and no subscription charges thereafter. If you haven't read about it, it interferes with the CAN bus operation (the communication digitising system that runs your car) invisibly and undetectably, preventing the car being stolen by key theft, key cloning, RFK (keyless) signal interception, and starting via OBD access.

Along with the tracker you may already have (now fitted as standard on some post September RRS, even if it may not be to some insurance company standards) you will be fully protected, although the need for tracking would probably only ever arise if you have a Ghost installation if you're car was towed or uplifted.

I'm on the focus RS forum & this will be going on my next car instead of a expensive tracker.This is the future in security in my mind,like you say Donny,they cannot take it even with the keys.

glad to hear the first (hopefully of many positive) reviews!

My group buy post was removed some 2 weeks ago pending a reply from the owner , which hasn't been forth coming,
no correspondence has.

I have nothing to do with veiling tuning and have no financial interest in this group buy (I might get a few beers if it does well)

It's great product and listed purely in the interest of all the owners that are aware of how vulnerable these cars are to theft.

Best

Apparently it got left with the owner.....I haven’t heard a word.

I m not going to waste anymore time on it tbh.

I will drop you a Pm though with Chris details and I m sure it can be arranged for him to visit.
