I was wondering if there is a better alternative to the pre installed reCAPTCHA, since bots still seem to be getting through those, even on highest settings.

I don't believe bots can break recaptcha, so I'd suspect that you have another exploit somewhere. The CSRF protection may help, or you may want to hire someone to look at your installation for you, to see what's really going on and if it is indeed the captcha. If you need to find a developer, you should post a request in the OpenCart "Commercial Support" forum, which is checked by a number of OpenCart developers. You can also try checking out the OpenCart "Partners" area.

Ive got spam mail coming in with the default contact form subject title, so it has to be through that somehow. My 3.0.2.0 build has been live only 3 weeks and its been doing it since pretty much the start. So either the contact form comes with a hole in the code, or bots are managing to crack through recaptcha now. :(

The two solutions above have been provided. Depending on those specifically should not be a problem against CSRF attackers.

Possibly but I wouldn't be surprised if it gets broken soon, OCR is very good and getting better all the time. We're seeing more hacks and hack attempts than ever these days too!

While this is true, Google or other related providers will probably be ready for it. It is only about awaiting for their next solutions.

I have just received words over PM that by following what I have suggested above: viewtopic.php?f=202&t=203733#p721255 still works accordingly even from yesterday night's installation. These extensions are still bullet proof.
