03-24-2010, 07:43 PM
think its time I invest an alarm system, I park my car right out side my building, and Im looking at a 2 way system, something that will be really sensitive to anything....

two options i have found in my area are, Compustar and black widow?

both guys want about 550$ to put them in plus add power to my doors.

I dont know much about alarms and electrical is not my strong point.

what do you suggest?

any one know about black widow or compustar?

Black Widows look cheap to me, haven't even heard of them till now. Id stick with Compustar or something DEI really (Viper, Clifford, Python) if you want reliability...

Yeah out of those two go with the Compustar. I've got a Viper and I love it.

However $550 is a lot of money...I got mine (which is a mid-range one) for like $200 and installed it myself. It's not that hard as long as you have patience.

Ok, ill look around for viper, like I said electrical is not my strong point and Id be after reliability and would not trust my self doing my own install

I have and advise you to install a cobra alarm,because is simple-affordable-long lasting.
Don't be impressed by the displays and multifunktioning keyboards!They increase the cost of the alarm and if a display drops from your hands and break you will need a fortune to replace it..With my cobra alarm,nothing can enter the armed zone,or any door-boot etc open without it siring..It also prevents the engine from starting.

Personally I don't give a **** if it makes also toast,eggs and take the kids to school..Do you?
