Microwave (proximity) sensor and shock. Also hood and trunk pins.

I think thats a glass sensor no? Not positive. I'd still go with prox and which ever you choose out of the other 2. I'd think shock would be better. Seems like most thieves just hit it, if it goes off or chirps they move on.

only disadvantage to a prox. sensor is false alarms. The unfortunate thing is this detects motion so if its raining the drops going down your windshield will probably set the sensor off into full panic. My advice would be to have a switch where you can turn it on or off if you decide to go with it. I have installed many of these myself but most of these sensors are more of an inconvenience, but as stated above trunk/hood pins are mandatory, another option for you is a tilt sensor.

Just for the record my prox only sets false alarms when in high traffic areas. If you turn off the outside zone and only use the inside it works fine. It's best for soft tops. Mine never has false alarms in the rain. I think it's all in how you adjust it. Some brands might be better than others...
