If you've ever needed reminding that your Figaro is a 'super reliable' car then you must read the fascinating story from Retired couple Dave and Sally Sands. We particularity enjoyed the comment from the breakdown support company who tells Dave shortly after the start 'You won't be needing us'  Brilliant! Read more

tools2QUESTION 1
External Alarm Sensor for Figaro?
    
tools2QUESTION 2
  
tools2QUESTION 3

 
Does any one know where to go to get an external sensor fitted to a current alarm system? I want to deter people from toughing my Fig at night, and I know that some modern cars have this, it basically verbally warns you to move away from the vehicle, and then the alarm goes if you do not move. I already have a good security system internally but really want to add this feature for peace of mind I hope someone can help me out on this one, as I am at a dead end Lee Brighton

 

ANSWER 1  

Hi Lee how are you doing the alarm you had fitted can have duel motion sensor so it will digital bark and if they don't move away the alarm will go off on the third warning. This is ok but some time cause more problems as they try to make it beep so they get closer to your car. If you get my drift.

About the people behind the Figaro Owners Club
My son Daniel had always wanted a Figaro and after saving for years (plus a small contribution from his mum and dad!) he brought an Emerald Green one in May 2008. That was it - I was hooked too! Even now we spend many a happy weekend polishing her in the garage. We just love all that chrome... After buying the car we started searching the internet for ownership help and advice and although a forum existed there was no real club so in December 2008 we started designing and building the web site which took around 4 Months.

The club was formed in February 2009 and launched on 1st March 2009.
