thats pretty steep


and anyways, thats not enough stuff to deter the Detriotian hoodrats from jacking your car.

for ultimate security, you need one 12w7 in your trunk so when they go to start the car, they go deaf and fall out the car stunned and paralyzed.

200 for alarm install
50 for glass sensor install
50 for tilt sensor install
50 for extra battery install
50 for piezos install
100 to solder all connections

pretty standard pricing, (i feel its a hair high, but it is average)

except for the soldering. 100 for soldering? thats ridiculous.

Hello,


Yeah they all seems to be reasonable price, but have only doubt in soldering, u said 100 for soldering, i suppose this is not fine, rest everything would be fine, Keep Sharing and Reading.
Have a nice time a head!

atleaste the guy doing it is soldering it and not t-taping them in

thats got to be the worst thing in the world to do is to t-tap an alarm

Ya its kinda steep, but still around the right price. The fact taht he said 100 to solder is bs. Yes, ttaps would take less then half the time, but it would be janky as ****. You do have alot of stuff ur adding so i can understand those, but his bs 'solder' charge is another reason to get 100 from you. You have to test those wires anyway to make sure they are correct, so if you are gonna strip it already, why not just solder it. C what im sayin? Id keep tryin around to get more prices. GL

that sounds like shop prices
which is reasonable for a shop price

ive always done all my work myself so i never honestly worry about install price

there is nothing wrong with T-taps. A properly used T tap WITH stress release won't fail. I've personally done thousands of cars this way with maybe 1 return for a tap issue. Worth it for the speed easily IMO.

Thats some b.s. if they are charging you to solder all wire connections on an alarm install. I have never charged to do that. When it comes to alarm/keyless/remote start installs I always solder my connections. Go to another shop and you can get out around $300 for everything installed.

Im currently lookin for other shops around here, it has to be a viper authorized shop so my warranty stays valid...but theres not many around here...alot of shady places that dont seem to know what they doin.

If you can trust them sure. But charging you to solder is rediculous. I would pay 50 at the most for that. Id say thats just a little steep. but not too bad.

The labor charge should INCLUDE the soldering, as that is part of the process of installation! 350-400 sounds about right, 100.00 extra for soldering is rape..Keep looking...
