Would you advise getting a tracker fitted to my new car and, if so, which one?

I've just bought a new Mercedes-Benz C-Class and have read that the C-Class is the fourth most commonly stolen car. I live in rural Oxfordshire. Would you advise getting a tracker fitted and, if so, which one?

If you live somewhere rural you are at lower risk than urban owners, but if you're worried then a tracker is a good bet. A company simply called "Tracker" (www.tracker.co.uk) makes some of the most comprehensive and proven tracker systems in the UK, but they can be expensive. On the plus side, your insurance premium should be lower, which offsets some of that cost.
