What is everyone planning to do as far as alarm/theft recovery for their BOSS?

I have the Ford Active Anti-Theft and Guidepoint GPS Theft Recovery on my GT now, but the AAT is not offered on the BOSS.
I would consider getting GuidePoint GPS recovery again, but Amazon has a system made by Escort that is nearly 1/2 the price.

I already have a set of locking lugnuts that will go on...

What are everyone's plans so far?

Pet Puma behind the front seats. ;D

I've always thought about this, and figured if someone steals my car, I probably don't want it back after it's been abused.

How do wheel locks affect the balancing?

Trunk Monkey is always a good thought...

Wheel locks won't affect the balancing, they replace one lugnut on each wheel. Not to mention they are so close to the axis of rotation that any weight change won't make a difference.
 
I haven't thought about this at all. I'm sure this will be a popular topic once the cars arrive.
 
Ford's Active security system is available as a Ford accessory. I am having it installed before I take delivery. The cost is 400$. I am also transferring my tracking system from my old car to this one.

Hadn't thought about the wheel locks though.

I have the Ford AAT on my GT and like it, but at $400-$450 installed it's kind of a rip. :'(

I'm going to just have a Viper installed by the dealers for like $230 and see if I can pull my GPS tracker out of my GT before I sell it.
