Why not fit a central locking kit. Most come with 4 actuators and a remote key fob . 2 for the doors and with one on the boot and you have a spare.
you gotta make the most :cheers: :cigar: :burnout: out of your 20's, 30's, and 40's coz when you hit 50 the "engine check" light comes on. :?

Let's face it, the ignition lock and ignition key are so easily circumnavigated these days that the security feature of a unique key is rendered more or less useless anyway.
Oh, I disagree, it`s so old tech in a couple of years the scrotes won`t even know how to get in with a key: if there isn`t a scanner off ebay they won`t know where to start!

Ah ha! Retro security. A cunning plan.
So if your Capri disappears you need to look for a 50+ boy racer :)
