    Is this Alarm good

    The local shop only offers Autopage and Avital. They said they were going to use Avital on my car. which is a 1996 Honda Accord.

    It is $229 for a basic alarm with keyless entry. no special keyfob.
    $399 for Alarm & Remote Start
    $399 for the best alarm system. Comes with the special keyfob with ur car on it and whatnot.
    Im going with the $229.
    They solder the connections as well. Those prices include installation
    Did I get a good deal? It is getting installed Jan 3rd. I have not paid for anything. Just callin around, and they do not let you bring in other alarms to be installed. It was either Advanced Audio & Video(Mom&Pop Store who are authorized in Alpine,MTX, Autopage, Avital) or Best Buy.

    Information would be great. I'm going to go read some reviews

    Re: Is this Alarm good

    Shop around... find what fits your needs, etc.

    For me, I'm going with a $500+ alarm. Paging system, 3 sirens, back-up power source, tint sensor, shock sensor, the whole nine. Including starter kill, fuel pump kill, relocated hood pop cable. Obviously you don't have to go all out as I am, buy my car is a magnet and target for thieves.

    You still in the 8th grade?

    LOL... go get a cam. I'll mop that piece of crap. Right now with the things in my sig, I'm doing 163 whp. I should be doing almost 200 whp with a set of cam and an intake manifold. Also starting a buildup for a 500whp daily driver.

    Edit: Make sure you get a HUGE wing so the car is stabilized at high speeds.

    Re: Is this Alarm good

    I'm not familiar with the brand. Look for a more known brand like Python, Viper, etc.

    Yep.. that's the Teg.

    The insurance company is finally starting to pay me from my accident for my lost wages. In the next two months, I'll have almost $7000 in checks (for a pay period of 4 months time), so I'll be doing an insane build. It's going to be fully built, and about 500 wheel horse power.

    Re: Is this Alarm good

    Nothing wrong with Best Buy in my opinion, really.

    I'm buying the alarm separately, and taking it there for installation.

    There's no "Pro" audio/video shops around. Just mom and pops little **** shops.

    I'm not going to trust the shop with the ****** little garage, over a place like Best Buy.

    At least with Best Buy, they have people there who actually had to pass a course and training to work there, and the work is guaranteed.

    You know what I mean?
