i work at a electronics retailer, and normally the viper 791(i think) is like 501.99 retail, but i can get it for 177. would ya'll do this? or is it even worth getting an alarm. i got a 97 explorer. oh i gotta pay and extra 100 to get it installed too.

right in line with what i paid for mine... i wanted to go your method but the local shop (authorized viper dealer) wouldn't install what they didn't sell.

i would get it

$177 is a **** good deal if its new.
$100 for installation sounds good to me assuming the install WILL be professionally done and backed up with some sort of install warranty.

only do it if the install has a lifetime warranty on it, if not dont even do that install!

Question on this alarm.....

I am thinking of picking one up as an X-mas gift to myself :) but I know absolutely nothing about aftermarket alarm systems (i just hear this one is good). So, here are the questions:

1 - do I need to buy any additional equipment to make the auto-start work (I have a 00 Infiniti I30)?

2 - people w/ this system: what additional upgrades do you recommend (e.g. back up battery, additional sensors?? others??)

Like I said I am a noob when it comes to alarms - so any help is appreciated.

it was easy for me because i had a shop put it in and they got the needed extra stuff.

if you have have a transponder key (has a security chip in it) you'll need a bypass module. window roll up/down module can control your windows from the remote. proximity sensor can trigger lots of false alarms and become annoying.

ok....thanks! would $200 be considered a good price on a new uninstalled basic system (i.e. no upgrades)?

oh hella yeah... it cost me 500$ at the shop before installation charge

YES.. I work at Best Buy and us employees get the 791 for 170 bucks and it sells for 507.99.
