I've read through a couple other pages about alarms and I honestly have no idea what to even start looking for. Since I have no alarm at all right now, I'm looking for a very basic one.

So what kind of alarm could I get for about $75-150 and would this be adequate? And what type of features should I be looking for in particular to help prevent getting my audio jacked?

Lastly, the faceplate to my headunit is not removeable. Do yall have any other suggestions other than tint to keep it from getting unwanted attention. Right now, I just toss a shop-towel over it when I park in public.

I like my shelby alarm...

the siren has it's own battery in case the power wire gets cut...or the battery dies...

and it was pretty affordable...

Also, I don't really care about automatic locks or windows. Just the alarm.

Any other info on your alarm junky? price, model, link

the shop towel is obviously hiding your head unit. look for deals at your local audio shops. car toys was doing basic alarms for around 100 bucks a while back.

I know, it was just a spur of the moment thought I had one night and kept doing it for some reason.

I absolutely loathe eBay and all the **** products on it, but would something like this work?

Well, I honestly don't care about remote start or keyless entry.

? keyless entry is just lock/arm unlock/disarm. thats half of what an alarm is... you like putting the key in the door and manually unlocking it every time?

remote start you dont have to hook up, but why not?

Because they are features that cost extra that I see no point for. I would probably be fine with keyless entry. If I'm not mistaken though, aren't there stipulations for putting remote start in a manual car?
