Toronto GTA based, with lots of vehicles stolen every day. Does anyone have any feedback on a newer device from Arthur Alarm, called the IGLA that taps into the bus of electronics of the Macan. Would this void warranty, does it work? The videos look intriguing, you press buttons in the vehicle in a certain sequence and you can drive normal… if not then the perp can’s steal your Macan… sounds too good to be true. Cost in US is ~$500 + installation.
Anyone?

Adding a pin-coded cell phone interruptor would add some degree of addition security beyond the stock Porsche alarm.
Of course, a DIYer could install a wired ignition inhibitor with a hidden activation switch too. It's up to you whether you think the hassle or expense of one more touchscreen pin code in your life is worth it. Given the prevalence of tracking systems available these days, is theft of the vehicle more likely, or is it a smash & grab theft of items from the vehicle the more likely risk?

These days a manual transmission is the single best theft deterrent by far. Shame that Porsche couldn't offer it in every model.

Im from Toronto too. Toronto / GTA have turned into absolute sh1tholes. Vehicle thefts and Car Jackings up significantly year over year. Im eager to hear suggestions on how to protect my Macan and other vehicles as well. Its something that I never really thought of or needed before, but now that we have our first child who is 5 months, I want to do everything possible to make sure we're not victims. Hoping some other members have some suggestions for the vehicle itself as that is 1 area im clueless on since it was never really an issue.

If someone break into my car, I prefer they take it and I never find it again. What good would be to get your car back in pieces? My cousin had his BMW 5 series parked at a street in Milan. The thieves couldn’t take the car but they took the entire panel of the car. From the part in front of the driver where you have the gauges, etc… to the radio controls, touch screen device, etc… All they left was a bunch of electrical wires hangin there. Insurance company paid to get it back in shape and the car had gremlins everywhere. Better to get it replaced by another car.
