    I am considering an install on a remote start myself especially for the winter time....is there any one particular brand to stay away from or that is highly recommended? Also how would this affect the engine immobilizer system

    i like viper,python,sidewinder.a directed electronics product.there is so many different brands of alarms.there is a bypass for the immobilizer.you might have to put your valet key in the bypass therefor lossing that key or they might have a bypass that reads the key,im not sure.anyways good luck

    Check out Compustar at http://www.compustar.com/main.htm. It is expensive, but has a ton of features.

    I am very interested to see if anyone has on on this forum.
