Post Alarm for a Convertible....any ideas

I want to get a new alarm for my vert. I like to leave the top down alot, in fact most nights I pull it in the garage with the top down and ready. It is easier with the convertible boot to leave it down. I want a alarm so no one can reach in my car without it going off, or at least chirping a warning. A remote pager is ok, but not really needed. But I want it protected when the top is down. Anyone ever have one like this, and what is the estimated cost?

I'm using Viper on mine, but I don't have a convertable. You'd need something like a field disturbance module (508D). It works great even on a hard top. People just have to get close to my car and it'll set of the warning.

Yup 508D is the way to go Dual Adjustable Zones, one zone warns away, and the other actually sets off the alarm. Alot better than a single zone, or a stupid shock sensor.
