Authorised Dealer of the Year 2017

We have exciting news to share about ADS being able to now offer Autowatch Ghost products.

Ghost is the world’s first aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser. Protect your car from theft like nothing else on the market today.

The Ghost protects your car from key-cloning, hacking, and even key theft. The only way a thief could take a Ghost protected car is by physically towing it away, even then they will never be able to drive it! The Ghost has no key-fobs or LED indications to give away its location. The Ghost uses the buttons in your vehicle such as those on the steering wheel, door panels or centre console, to allow you to make a unique, changeable, PIN code sequence that must first be entered before you can drive your car. Just like your credit card but you can make your car PIN even safer by making it up to 20 presses long!

However, we did not settle there! In order to make extreme security also be hassle free, we have created an iPhone application that connects to your car and allows you to get in and drive without having to enter the PIN code. This iPhone pairing allows a single, authorised, connection with a secret pairing code that is unique to every Ghost and communication between the Ghost and the iPhone is encrypted. All you have to do is pair your iPhone with your Ghost, leave the Autowatch Ghost application running in the background with Bluetooth enabled and you can drive conveniently and securely.

The Autowatch Ghost product is so small it is hidden in your vehicle and once there is easily concealed and completely invisible. On entering your vehicle you are required to enter a user defined pin number to disarm the Autowatch Ghost system and allow you to start your vehicle, this is done by using various buttons on your dashboard in a particular sequence. Without knowing this unique code the vehicle simply will not start.

  • Benefits of the Autowatch Ghost system:
  • Engine Start Blocking
  • Undetectable using diagnostics
  • No Radio Frequency Signals
  • Silent Opertaion
  • Prevents Key Cloning and ECU Swapping
  • Tested to destruction for each supported vehicle
  • Weatherproof
  • Valet and Service Mode enabled
  • Emergency PIN override
  • Use the vehicles buttons to enter your PIN code

**Please note the latest version of the Autowatch Ghost now benefits from encrypted bluetooth technology for operation via Smartphone App. This new app erases the need for PIN code entry via buttons and instead uses the encrypted bluetooth connection to automatically deactivate the Ghost. Of course, should your phone be unavailable then the PIN code can always be entered via the dash buttons instead.


For more information on the supply and fit of the Autowatch Ghost immobiliser please feel free to contact us where we will be more than happy to help.

It has been well documented over the past 18 months that vehicle manufacturers using electronic keyless go systems have been prone to theft by way of key cloning. Thieves use sophisticated equipment to gain entry to these vehicles without causing any damage then programme a blank key into the vehicles ECU allowing them to start the vehicle and drive it away.

Vehicles make prone to this kind of theft are:

  • Audi
  • BMW
  • Ford
  • Nissan
  • Toyota
  • Mitsubishi
  • Kia
  • Land Rover
  • Jaguar
  • Range Rover
  • Porsche
  • Mercedes
  • VW

I took my 1998 audi 80 cabriolet to ADS with a faulty electric hood. I had previously searched Google and many audi forums to find a solution. I left the car with ADS hoping they would be able to find the fault and repair it. Talk about going above and beyond,their diagnostic man Dave took a 160 odd page document home and read it from cover to cover in his own time to get an understanding of how the hood worked and the wiring diagram. Thankfully the time spend doing this help him find the fault and repair it. I would not hesitate to use ADS again. Great customer more

Thank you ADS for an efficient, rapid service with a knowledgeable and friendly team. I recently bought an Audi A3 e-tron from a dealer in Derby and had it checked with a local Audi main dealer, both issuing incorrect reports after "health checks". After ADS work, the car is fixed and is now like new with no problems. more

Took my BMW 116d down for remapping and health check after a recommendation. The service I received was second to none, guys kept me fully informed throughout the process. Facilities were spotless and looked amazing. At the end of the day I got back my remapped car with amazing performance and full explanations of what they had done. Great place, highly recommend and my new place for anything car related. I may not have handed over a 30, 40 or 50 grand car for them to work with but they treated me as if I had and gave a real personal touch, Thanks guys ..... 5 stars 🌟 Iread more
