Thumbs down the (fiat) "international security register"

bought my car 2 weeks ago and ive been putting off updating the owner on this international security register, but I decided to get it out of the way tonight. 25 to update the details making me the registered owner of the car...theyre having a laugh arent they?

Is there any real benefit to being on this register? all I can see at present is that it "deters theifs"

Thanks
Nick
