Buy all your VW California Accessories at the Club Shop Visit Shop
Seriously?Thanks for the heads up - I was going to buy but this has seriously put me off - I think I will rent when I need a vehicle
I guess an immobiliser may help prevent this.How awful for you.
Reading reports like this make me wonder what additional measures I can put in place to prevent theft if someone gets hold of our keys.
I wish you luck in tracing its whereabouts.
hello Eberhard. If you hear of some way to protect our Cali from robbery in Ireland would you please let me know. I live in Leitrim. ThanksGood afternoon,
That is so terrible to hear. It is such a huge decision and occasion to buy and finally own the California. You should spend your time enjoying the van.
I never understood how people believe they have the right to take things away from others which have worked and saved hard to buy and enjoy what ever it is.
We live in the country and even though the van is my daily drive, now and then we take my wife's car and leave the van in front of the house. The keys are in a different room kind of hidden away, but nothing stops intruders to get into the house and search for them.
I had a look at Autowatch Ghost in Ireland, because I am interested to get it installed. But so far I have not found a company that a.) offers this solution and b.) that convinces me that they are a reliable company. If anybody is aware of a supplier and installer with a good reputation in the greater Dublin area, please let me know.
Good morning,hello Eberhard. If you hear of some way to protect our Cali from robbery in Ireland would you please let me know. I live in Leitrim. Thanks
I wouldn't mind getting Autowatch Ghost on our van as well. If there aren't any reliable installers in Ireland, I wonder if there would be enough of us willing to commit and make it worthwhile for another installer to come over and do a batch of vans all at once. I'd be willing to commit.Good morning,
Yes, of course. I will talk to my VW dealer about this as well. I wonder if they can recommend something.
Just a note, in Europe, men use handbags. Keys, phone, wallet = bulky awkward baggy clothing, e.g. shoulder bag to maintain a minimum of comfort and avoid homeless look.Hide the keys or take the ignition key with you perhaps. That is why women have handbags. I have a small hidden safe for spare keys etc.
They have regional fitters, give them a call.Any recommended fitters Loz? I Googled around and found Immobiliserdirect but after all the horror stories on here want to make sure our Cali doesn’t get damaged as a consequence of fitting.
