yep, they can be hooked upto central locking just fine, and autobarn do sell em, usually keep some commodore ones in stock.

they stop people shoving keys in your keybarrels, but if someone wants in, they wont stop em.

having said that though, i had a cousins fiance come into work oneday(i work at autobarn), his vl got broken into twice in one week, first, they stole the battery, second the stereo. he bought a set of solex locks, has been fine since.

you can get 'TYPE R' brand one also (cheaper) & even another brand (cant remember the name) But good as a deterant as said above, they dont offer much more than that really, cus if someone wants something not alot you can do if they determind enuf :(

Ive had them on both my VL's & my VK.

The best door lock is only as good as the weak-arse window above it. Still...I've never heard anyone complain about the Solex locks.
