View Full Version : Installation Question
12-18-2006, 06:01 PM
Hey. So I want to buy a Viper 560XV for my 1997 Ford Mustang. I am wondering what the best deal would be. I would not be able to install it myself, so I dont know the best route here. I could get it for $130 from Amazon.com, but then does anybody know of where I can get it installed? My other option would be to get it from a ziebart store, and they will sell it to me and install it for $399.99. Anybody know where I could get a professional install though? Thanks!
EDIT: Sorry one more thing...I just have a question. I havent 100% decided on the viper..but i think it looks good. Whats the difference between say the viper and a hornet or a clifford? They all seem to be made by Directed Electronics. Thanks!

Your best option is to purchase from the same place that installs it. DEI carries a lifetime warranty, but not if it's purchased online, no matter who installs it. Also, in your area all alarm/remote start shops are EXTREMELY busy right now and will be much busier in a week. Many won't be willing to install an alarm that wasn't purchased from them. I'd find a shop that sells the alarm you want, then talk to the staff and get a sense of what kind of installation they do. You want to avoid a place that just wants to get as many installations done in the shortest time possible, which probably rules out Ziebart. Find a place willing to take the time for a quality installation.
Similar models of Viper/Avital/Clifford units are identical, to the extent that you could unplug one brain and plug another into the same harness for the same functionality.

The ones around here do fine with remote starts.
