Hi Sammy,
How much did it cost, and is installation cumbersome? Can you remove it before driving, so that it doesn't hinder foot movement? Did the car have to be modified for it? I plan to go in for one for my Fiesta.

One question here. All ford cars have similar key. What I mean is they all look alike. I was told by ford service center guy that there is a chip in the key and only if the code of that chip matches with the one in my car, it would allow the car to start. Is this not something similar to icats what ford is providing in all cars since long.

God save the driver if someday he forgets to remove the device before entering the car......
