Best turbo timer is yourself, you know how hard the car as been driven and for how long, so save yourself some money.

As far as i know they aren't 100% legal, isn't it an offence to leave a car running unattended? Insurance companys wont appreciate it either.

If you hook them up the way they're supposed to be hooked up there is no problem.

Think they are legal. myns built in to my clifford alarm. two taps of the brake peddle and push the arm button and it cuts in. so would of thought they are legal if they put them on cat 1 alarms, i swear by myn.

Maybe i'm thinking of the cheap ones you can pick up from the likes of Halfords etc.

The ones that cost about 30-40 and sit on your dashboard. Easy access to your ignition wiring for some dodgy characters!

Don't be so lazy waste of money just sit in the car with the engine idleing for an extra 30secs. Spend the money on something useful  :)

Have to agree if you want scuttle covers speak to Bob @ CGB. Personally never seen a set that actual fits properly yet on a 5.
