    This also applies on the pre-faclift EP3 and FN2.... probably all recent Hondas I suspect.

    I keep my keys by the dog, wanna steal it try driving off without hands sweetie. Mine being so old doesn't have keyfob, well not that I was presented with when I bought it (so many things missing that's probably one I'm not sure) does have an immobiliser though, well when it lets me turn it off that is. It is pretty safe where I live though, and my car is old compared to all yours so hoping I'm not in any danger of it being taken.

    would you guys be happy if your car had no alarm siren? I recently found out it was removed in my car for some reason, prob going off. The siren is very expensive to buy off Honda so im not sure if ill just leave it or do something about it. The car is left in a pretty quiet safe place btw

    Both sets of my keys go in my bedside drawer every single night. And my car is neatly positioned so a bush covers view from the road. Luckily I live in a fairly low car crime area. *Touch wood*

    You could get an aftermarket alarm installed for around 200.
