I have an EL Ghia fitted with Smartlok and Sentry factory alarm system working off the standard keypad.

Is this a sufficient anti-theft system or do I need an additional security device. I will be parking the car at a train station, I want it still there when i return from work.

I say maybe add a kill switch?? Or maybe just a prolock sterring heel thing. Would this be good enough security or is it easy picking.

I wouldn't leave any car at a train station.. it's not just getting nicked, I'd be scared of the car getting keyed and generally vandalized.
