My latest car is an F Steptronic, I wasn't sure how long I'd be keeping it so I developed an easy fit alarm. It uses a tank as fitted to 2005 cars and all the electronics including LED and warning buzzer are fitted in a switch blank.

If anyones interested I made a short(ish) video showing it.
Interesting video. I would be interested which timer/processor you used for this purpose?
What I used is led and buzzer which is control with relay with timer for 10 sec delay, so no three marktimes and no ignition switch contact check.
