Probably be cheaper for me to pay him and drive over lol !
And also have a great time in the process
Oh of course. My car is on the drive outside the house and I sleep soundly with the Ghost on there. Again, there's always a keyboard warrior who thinks they know better, but if you speak to anyone who knows anything about the product, your car is not getting taken away if you have a Ghost on there. I am an installer of course, but you wont have seen me trying to flog ghost installs on this forum, so this is my view as a user, not a sales pitch as an installer.
As a car enthusiast, when I get my new car the things I am not happy until they are on goes as such
subtle bodywork / bodykit changes to make my car unique
Since having a Ghost that has now changed from a tracker to a ghost install and since having this particular colour of car and having the Ceramic, I would add that too
Do you find it annoying having to key in a code before starting it?
What price should I be looking at paying for it and where do you cover as an installer ?
Been quoted £350 is that good price
Just stumbled across this post. I have ceramic coating and ghost installed. It takes me no longer than a few seconds to enter the code. It gets to the point where you don't even realise the additional time it takes to enter! Small price to pay for the additional security IMO!
What did you pay ?
£399 for Ghost and £360 for Ceramic Coating.
Autowatch the manufacturer stipulate that as an installer, you have to charge £399 regardless of whether its a Cupra, which takes 45 minutes or a new discovery which takes me 6 hours! If I am caught selling it cheaper, like £350 then I risk being dropped as an installer.
There are special cases such as group discounts etc, but for individual customers it is £399.
I work from a unit in Milton Keynes, but I am sure someone on google will come to you in your area, there is a lot of us now!
As Cranny says, it becomes second nature and I would say it adds less than a second to enter my 4 button pin on the steering wheel so really adds no time to my engine start routine. I did a youtube demonstration on my old 290 a couple of years back here if you fancy a butchers...
my 290 was beautiful wasn't it ;-)
Interesting as I have quote for £350 but now I’m not sure because half the reason I was justifying the cost was lower insurance but it’s not Thatcham approved.Did your insurance take into consideration? And why is it not as it appears great and better than most cat 2 Thatcham however they are only 50m60 quid
Got a spare room? Just over our winter will do.
Or over our (UK) summer...just like winter!
What about when a dealer works in your car? Do you have to go and explain it all to them or de activate it? @Glennc91
It has a service mode, so you can deactivate the ghost after your pin has been entered (before anyone asks why thieves cant just deactivate it) so you don't go having to tell the lads at the car wash or dealer what your pin is. If somehow someone then stole your car from the car wash or dealer by some coincidence while ghost was in service mode, the ghost would reactivate itself once the car hits 32mph and continues to drive for 15 minutes.
Autowatch are working on the insurance approval. At the moment, the benefit isn't getting 60 quid a year off your premium, it's waking up to your car every morning rather than an empty driveway. It's the peace of mind.
I had a customer come to see me who chose to have a tracker system instead of the ghost and I will explain the difference. Bare with me, this is quite a long story...
AMG45 mercedes, petronas edition. Had a tracker fitted, but cars like this are stolen to order as it is quite distinguishable. Anyway, the car was taken very easily as it was keyless go. No sign of it as tracker was found and removed within the hour by the thief. Couple of months later the police called my customer as they had got his car back. The thieves had faked some documents and put the mileage up by 15k on the car and sold it on autotrader with only one key. So the purchaser went to mercedes to get another key, mercedes called the police. The purchaser lost the £30k he spent on the car and there was nothing he could do about it. The police gave the car back to my customer who was the actual owner, car now registered as stolen recovered, mileage unverified, service history all over the place.... Car worth half what it was before it was taken even though its now home safe and sound.... Tracker system lowers your premium, ghost doesn't currently. The whole scenario would have been avoided with a ghost installed.
I don't care who you use to install your ghost, but being in the car security business, make the next £400 you spend on your car a Ghost!
Sounds great; what about when the guys test drive the car after fixing it?
if they need to test drive it for more than 15 minutes then they haven't fixed
You do certainly sell it and I do want it,I do have in the back of my mind the comments about then coming into my house tho but I know the chances are minimal and I have cameras and an alarm.
I like the look of the Ghost app that allows for encrypted iPhone code so it works like keyless but I want to know how far the radius is as if it’s like keyless and my phone is on my bedside table at front of house,would it allow the car to be started or would you have to actually be in the car ?
Do you you use it ?
Not The greatest pictures, all that were left on their site.
I had mine done a few weeks back (Gtechniq CSL)... They applied it in a garage and kept it overnight to cure, i was also told not to wash it for a week. Apparently its supposed to last 3 - 5 years, so we'll see.
I couldn't afford full paint correction, which is my only regret. So I do have a few minor scratches visible under the coating, although all swirls are gone. Another thing I've noticed is the orange peel effect on the paint is a bit more noticeable because of the high gloss finish.
It's a breeze washing the car though, a simple wash and dry for a showroom finish. Overall I'm happy
Yeah but I think it depends on their location and also traffic, what the problem was, and if they decided they want to take it for a longer drive as it’s a Cupra my brother works near a dual carriageway and the only way he can road test cars is to take them down the dual then back up at the next roundabout; which takes more than 15 mins. What WOULD happen?
