Alarm System

I am about to buy a C230 and have been wondering if I should get a alarm with or get an aftermarket one. Thers not much detail on what the benz one has for features on the alarm. If any of you have one let me kniw the features and weather it was worth it or not.

C230K has a built-in alarm... sort of. If someone tries to get into your car or pull out the stereo - it's gonna go off

umm.... not necessarily. I just had my brand new top-of-the-line Sony head unit removed from my 2000 C230. The theif was smart enough to know not to open the door. Since the factory alarm has no shock or motion sensor, he simply broke the drivers side glass and removed it (tint held it basically in one piece). He then climbed in the window and removed the head unit (doing $2700 in damage).

I'm currently looking into having a shock and motion sensor added to the factory alarm. (I want to keep the factory alarm so that I don't have to carry another transmitter.)
