@@ Got my Car nicked.... but theres good news

So to cut a long story short. My house was broken into and they took the keys for my beloved Evoque . Landrover were super unhelpful in tracking the car. But I took a punt on renewing my expired Incontrol app and got a ping on parked location. Cops were quick to respond and I got the car back with damages and random parts of car removed like overhead console etc. ( Must have been searching for tracker ). Cant talk too much about as investigation is still ongoing but I had an integrated Dash cam from AliExpress which they didn’t clock . Worth the investment guys. Now I am paranoid about the car being nicked so after some research plan on doing the following security upgrades and wanted the community input on my ideas and any install. The below is based on my car being an 2015 Evoque and not a Ferrari so types of criminals are likely to be chancers rather than proper professionals with all the right gear and know-how.

Level 1 security upgrade - £150
After some research, I purchased a CAN BUS firewall. AMPIRE WFS400. You all will know this as a Ghost 2 pincode type immobiliser. Having contacted authorised seller it supports my Evoque and requires splicing of a couple of CAN cables which I plan to do deep into Dash.

If you guys know of any covert places to tap the 12+ perm, Ground and ignition live please let me know.
I want to stay away from battery and fuse boxes as the thieves had already got to those locations and pulled a bunch of stuff.


Level 2 security upgrade ( Backup ) Tracker - £50 + Relay block £15
I’m also going to add the REWIRE SECURITY DB1-LITE plus REWIRE Ignition replay block. This is so in case they get around the CAN BUS firewall somehow. This way I can track the car and also remotely via app trigger the ignition replay block .

Now my plan is to cut one the start / stop button wires and place the relay in-between. The reason Im thinking of this location is that is a pain to get into and not somewhere they will think off quickly. What do you guys think. If any one knows colour of wire to cut to do this please let me know. ( I believe its brown ) or a reason not to do this please let me know[size=medium].

I hope to do a video install of all once I have confirmed install locations for the community. Video link will probably be by request for people really wanting to install extra security as I don’t want thieves to be able to view.

RE: @@ Got my Car nicked.... but theres good news

Welcome to the forum, sorry that theft of the car brought you here.
You don’t say which year or model your Evoque is which would be helpful. Also if it had keyless entry were you storing your keys in a Faraday mesh pouch? Had you taken any other security precautions like a disks or or pedal cage. One other thing, if your car is an older Evoque to you still have it main dealer serviced or is it serviced by a local garage. I ask this because there have been a few updates to the security systems of all LR products in the last couple of years and these were only available through main dealers at service time as software upgrades. If it is an Evoque2 2020MY then this is not great news as the security systems in the newest models is supposed to be extremely good. I have a New Defender and on it, and I suspect future new LR vehicles, the security system is now an optional extra that has to be specced at order. Possibly because too many of the cheapo insurers require owners to fit the insurers favourite brand of tracker in addition to the JLR system.

RE: @@ Got my Car nicked.... but theres good news

Hi
I am new to the forum too and I JUST bought a RR Vogue SDV8 SE with a colour I love but sticks out like a sore thumb.
I've been reading on some stuff about security and theft after I've decided to buy it but everything I read makes me even more paranoid.
Some box that is used to nick the keyless cars without even stealing the car keys and how easy it is to break into the new cars with these systems.

That's why I joined the forums actually and a couple more RR forums. I am looking for some advice and how people deal with their security.
I have had my eye on a GPS tracker, which coincidentally also from the company you listed(Rewire Security). Have you managed to buy and install their tracker?
I am planning to phone them next week about https://www.rewiresecurity.co.uk/cat-s5-...ps-tracker and see how it goes.

I would appreciate it if you could provide some feedback though if you are using their trackers. ,

P.S. For some reason I can't post replies or post all. If this manages to go through, I will edit the message since there is no way to report this issue on the forums.
Sorry about the theft btw

Arrius, until you find a tracker you like I would suggest going to Amazon and buying two Faraday Pouches to keep your keys in ( £6.99 for two!) and for visible in car security then a “Stoplok” or “Discloc” from Halfords

I fitted an ampire canbus immobilizer. If you don’t want to get your hands dirty get a ghost 2 immobilizer as they come and fit for you . You really want to stop them taking the car in the first place . If you do get one of these fitted it will mean even if they clone the key they won’t be able to start the car unless they know pin code . I would look it up on YouTube . As stated above I have a rewire tracker also with ignition block that can triggered by the app and stop them starting the car.
