  • Thatcham alarm?

    Does the 16 plate insignias come with Thatcham alarms as standard? Tried a bit of research but canny find a positive answer.
    Thanks

        Looking at the alarm box will tell you nothing at all as it will just be a box with numbers on that only mean something to GM.

        Your easiest option will be to call into your local VX dealership and ask them to confirm what is factory fitted on your car.

          Yeah as above, from what I understand Thatcham is just an approval rating, if your Insignia has factory fitted alarm and immobiliser (uk spec cars will have) then it will be Thatcham cat 1 approved, this RAC site explains it...https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/b...ory-car-alarm/

            As your car is insured then what questions did they ask you with reference to the kind of alarm / immobiliser installed as standard?

                Thatcham 1 alarm fitted as standard on all Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport/Insignia B facelifts, as it was with the Insignia A and the Vectra C before that. It is not fitted as standard in some Opel markets (e.g Spain) where it is a cost option. In Spain it costs an extra €300.

                  Thanks for the replies guys. Curious Would the insignia A facelift vx-line models have the Thatcham 1 or Thatcham 2?

                    Thatcham cat 1

                    https://www.thatcham.org/what-we-do/...certification/ scroll down to"OEM" then "Thatcham compliant security devices" then scroll down to page 10/11 GM Insignia.
