Everythings good about the Viper 791, I had it for about 6 month in my new car and the remote starter is very useful and not a problem..

I hate the fugly huge blue remote that cost $80 bucks alone...

07-29-2006, 01:46 AM
ok ill go with the viper 791 then

the python has a black remote if youre interested, lol thats what I run

viper - blue
python - black
hornet - ??? blue I think
clifford - brown?

also i was wondering, is there ways to silence the remote so it doesnt beep on me if im the middle of class, like maybe set it to just vibrate?

I have a Clifford RSX 3.5 on a manual tranny. Works great. Mind you its made by DEI which also makes Viper. lots of extra functions that Compustar dont have, my installer told me that.

07-29-2006, 03:17 AM
also, do all thse come with the feature that will alert you when someone is close to your car? or is that a seperate add on?

07-29-2006, 03:32 AM
Yea you can put the remote on silent..

is the autopage 860lcd better then the viper 791xv? this shop owner told me it was but im not sure if he was just trying to make a sale.

also so far ive called a couple shops and one said 500 for the 860lcd and the other said 600 for the viper 791vx, i also asked how much it would cost if i purchased the alarm somewhere else and had them install it and they both said about 250-300 for installation, are these normal prices or is this too high?

i just ordered the viper 791xv(july,28,2006) from hccafan on the forums for 175 shipped! sounds like a good deal to me!:naughty:

07-29-2006, 04:20 PM
I was just about to say that. yo0, where are you ordering yours from?

07-29-2006, 04:58 PM
oh **** i was bout to order from ebay. ill talk to hcca fan

the autopage unit is a nice piece. it has better range then my 791. from an installer's perspective i like the viper better. (coming from an autopage dealer)

08-03-2006, 06:06 PM
Viper came out with a new model. It's the 5900 its got better range (1 mile!!) and supposedly smaller brain case. My local dealer told me that it replaces the 791xv as the top-o-the-line unit.

Ill have to look that up. Alarms wont completely satisfy me until they have phone capability, and when the alarm goes off it calls your cellphone. Then Ill be impressed.

That would be the ballinist **** ever.
