Believe that the glass breaking shoud be picked up by the internal motion sensors.
I don't believe the North American models have this sensor. It has been researched for retrofitting this into the system, but I believe was deemed to be too much work. :???:

r u talking about the motion sensors? Check your rear interior lights... If you have the sensors you should be able to see them staring back at you when you view those lights from the front pews ...

Eh? I was under the impression the motion sensor was housed in the blank fabric covered spot right behind the moonroof dial. :???:

i dunno where it is but i'm assuming that it had one being most fairly modern cars do. It has an immobilized key (at least later models including mine) so i would think it had one but wanted to check. My 97 Saab had one but you could see it.

According to my manual it should be in the rear interior lights.
Some months ago I saw the R32 motion sensor listed at PGPerformance.com, but the price was real high and there's no much info how to install them.
I've been wondering if the following info apply to our cars

I've already asked, but no replies.
Haven't had time to try.
