    Remote Start/ Security

    I want to get a remote start/security system for my GAGT but IDK what one to get. I'm pretty addicted to the "viper" brand name but I can look at different brands.

    I was originally planning on getting this one...


    But then after looking it over the other night I noticed that It did NOT have remote start, which I kinda want but is not completely necessary. Or in other words I CAN do with out it if i have to.

    Another option I seen now was this one...


    This has pretty much everything I want. BUT it is a bit on the pricey side.

    This is the one I would really like but can't seem to find a reasonable and trustworthy place to buy one or get it installed for a reasonable price. I think circuitcity charges $160 for install of security/remote start systems?


    I'm looking to spend under $430 INSTALLED

    Any ideas guys?

    Edit: Also, am i going to need ANOTHER $90-$100 adapter box to make something work for this car? I already had to buy a $100 adapter box to keep the door chimes.

    ALSO:
    After getting some opinions and looking around online, I decided to try and buy a viper 5900 online.

    Have you guys ever herd of this site
    www.dealercostcaraudio.com?

    and do you think I should order from it? I was thinking of just buying the viper 5900 from there and paying a local shop to install it.
    I called and asked how their prices are so cheap and the guy said that they were cheap because they don't have a showroom to pay for and the people selling you the items over the phone don't get commission.

    Re: Remote Start/ Security

    Well, I'll tell you that I have a Viper 5900SST and love it. Amazing range, and worth the $500 it cost me since it gives me peace of mind after becoming paranoid when my car was broken into and about $1500 worth of stereo equipment was stolen.



    System:
    Speakers: Polk MOMO 4x6s, 6x9s, and 6.5" components
    Headunit: Alpine CDA-9886
    Subwoofers: 2 Polk SR124DVCs
    Amps: MTX342 Thunder (Componenets) and Kicker SX1250.1 (Subwoofers)
    Batteries: DieHard Platinum P3 (Primary) and Stinger SPV44 (Secondary)
    Alternator: Stinger HO 220amp
    Wiring/RCAs: Stinger (4awg) / Stinger (Basic and Bullet)

    the LE units are more because they are brand new. much better, and ******. a little easier to install but also requires us installers to buy a new bitwriter chip or new bitwriter that are on backorder. they are ****** units tho. i am gonna get the 5901 at some point

    bitwriters are the way to go so you aint gotta spend twenty minutes programin the car to remote start for twenty minutes rather then ten.

    Re: Remote Start/ Security

    id highly suggest the 5900 over the 5701, Ive personally put in a good amount of 5701s and for every 10 I install, 6 or 7 come back with (the 2 way) remote issues, or even brain problems. 5901 is a different story, but they're more $$$. As for the 5900, none have come back, really ever.
