I went to the local car audio shop to check out prices for a remote starter, because its cold as balls here in pa, and the cheapest one he had was gonna be like 330 installed and it had 500 feet of range. The better ones w/ security and pager/ quarter mile range were 600+ installed, which seems awfully high to me. I think I am capable, and if not I have friends/family members who would be able to help me, install one myself. I guess I already have an anti theft system from the factory (2000 pontiac grand am se, 4 door, 2.4L auto) so i dont know if i need an add on security system. Any thoughts, ideas, or help would be greatly apreciated,
