At the moment these two vipers seem to be the best alarms on my budget level...

viper makes nice alarms. I have the 500 (i think that's what it's called) with a backup battery, a backup siren, and a trunk pin and it works great. I'll be getting more soon...never can be too safe....


but i have no complaints. I hear the 791 is a VERY nice alarm.

Yeah i've heard good things about it too and the 5900... I was wondering if it was a step above the 791 though because its listed above it on DEI's viper site...

The 791 and 5900 are essentially the same alarm, the only difference is the 5900 gives you a true 1 mile range on the remote.

Amazon is my friend... can probably be found cheaper on ebay and stuff. But i'm a big fan of amazon.

I have the new CompuStar Pro forsale right now and it's in your price range.

Hayabusa
04-14-2007, 02:02 PM
i'm not going to be ordering one til early May... I'll be out of school and have some time to get it put in then.

I think I'm going to go with Compustar Pro... I've heard they have the best range/feature combo. Maybe like something like that one bellow their best pro model that is 3000 feet rated. I don't see what the big difference is between it and the 6000 besides uber range increase...

Yes it is, at least if you don't know what you're doing. Which it sounds like you don't.

In the next few days i will be getting the CompuStar Pro P2W9000FMR. My local shop is doing it for me, and there charging me around $550. So when I get it and figure it out, i'll give you all a nice little review on it.

Thats what I am leaning towards if could only find an installer in the area. The CompuStar website has been of no help. :furious:

get a =viper 5900...i have it and its great, very good range

I just had one installed in my ride. Range is awesome on these. Not sure if it's really a mile, but either way it's great range. IMO

I got a Code Alarm with the little cell phone lookin thing that alerts you if your car is being tampered with. It displays an image of a vehicle, and the particular part thats being messed with lights up and flashes. It ran me $275. The model is CA160.

This website here is running a sale on it.

ha my thread been brought back to life. surprisingly i haven't gotten an alarm yet. I've been using the cheap turn the music down way before you get there technique. I think i'm gonna get a nice little 2-way and try to install it myself since everything else has been DIY. Might as well round it off. I'd perfer a good 2-way that doesn't have remote start because i don't feel like putting one in. I also would like to know if i need anything like a bypass module or something else because my car comes with a factory alarm sadly.

not really looking into a DEI product. Will probably look into Compustar if I ever find out do i need a module or something to defeat my factory alarm and other factory evil forces in the car.
