<< I like that statement. A good thief will do some research and learn where it is in plain sight.

Looks like a good alarm. I know I was thinking about getting a viper myself. I think I am going to get the one with the LCD screens though. Viper makes a good alarm though! Very reliable.

no i had a car audio place close to me install it...but i got a real good deal because i know the people that run the place...i think it would be super hard to install...and i was supposed to get a LCD screen one but...they told me that the keychain itself has been having defects and were only lastiing about 5 months, not the battery just the entire thing...like 5 months then u had to buy a new keychain which are prob like 60 or so. but who knows really. i would def ask around before i chose one

ahh I haven't heard about the keychain lcd's busting. I'll have to check that out thanks! I wonder if the warranty would cover that.

FYI: for those of you with the 5 speeds, in most states ( you have to sign a waver before they can install the autostart feature if they will do it at all. Most shops won't even install that on the 5 speeds)

Yeah, you can still manually start the car with the key. When you hit the button to remote start, the car starts and runs for a programmed period of time (mine is 12 minutes). Once you are ready to drive, you put the key in and turn it to On then step on the brakes, and you're good to go. If you step on the brakes before putting in the key or if you attempt to open the hood, the engine shuts off.

I know this is a super old thread .. and I did search (How do you think I found it?). One question. Can you remote start your engine and still have your doors locked? When its cold I want to start my car and not have someone take off in it! or figure out a way to do so..

Yes, the door locks/alarm are controlled by a separate button (at least on mine).
