I think the standard Stolen Vehicle Recovery System is good for most owners. I don't think it would have false trips or equipment malfunctions like some of those described.

It's the Early Warning Recovery System that can be troublesome to some, where you get those 'false alarm' calls. Those are good if you have kids who might sneak out with your car, you park in airport lots and would be out of town, or maybe have a business car where your keys may not be in tight control like your personal car.

But yeah, would I want the car back? Maybe if it were recovered within a short period of time from when it was stolen. I think it would be better for my Dakota, which is probably easier to take than the BMWs...
