Default Autocops or Xenos or Minda ?

I have been reading the central lock threads. is there any comparison info on these THREE models ( possibly with immobilizer option )
looking for opinion to decide on brand/ model.
BTW can we have VOTING on this security system which is really becoming crucial .

have got installed xenos in four cars. alto (3yrs), indigo (3 yrs), scorpio (1 yr) and my logan (a few months). No problems faced so far, except once the battery of a remote had to be changed. Add to that the life time warranty (in most cases, one will not keep a car for more than 5 years anyway).
Full marks to xenos.

That's not an exception Mithun,...
Xenos does a good job and the product is really good VFM.
Who else gives you a life time warranty in case of manufacturing defects.

Hi guys,

I have used Autocop, Silicon and now im using Xenos. I can say only one thing.... Xenos ROCKS!!! Im using the top of the line series which comes with engine immobilizer, shock sensor, stereo protection and the regular central locking and alarm system. It also has a nuisance prevention system which eliminates false alarms. It basically has almost everything you would require in a car security system. The shock sensor comes with 3 sensitivity modes i.e. High, Medium and Low. Using the Medium mode is the best option. The system cost me 5.5k and comes with a lifetime warranty. Ive been using it for 3 years now without a single problem. Absolute value for money. Would suggest to go in for the Xenos system.

What do they mean by incompatible? Check if it is a dealer jorgon.

When I bought my petra, I heard the same term "incompatible" when i got ready to cancel the order, it became compatible. They could be right, but I would trust them only if they give real answers.

Most of the cases, such after market fitments involve splicing the wiring harness. and they threaten the warranty would be void if they do so.

In other cases the technitians just do not know the color code of the new car and would not want to take a risk (they should not )

Autocop is Hyundai OE (called Cobra). Incimpatible as I understand simply means that you may have to cut the wire or put in adapters! Cutting wires may have warranty implications.

I faced a similar issue and could not get Autocop fitted in my Punto active. Now I have Minda fitted and no flaws. You can happily go for minda.
