    Need help
    I tried searching for this but didn't really come up with much so hopefully it is not a repeat.

    I have been looking at the Toyota V.I.P. security system with the glass breaks. I was looking for some feedback and recommendations.

    Is the system a good system and worth the $ to have Toyota put in?

    What would a quality aftermarket alarm system run (professionally installed) and what should I look for?

    Thank you!!

    Defenatly do with aftermarket. Toyota will rip you a new one for the install, and it won't perform nearly as well. I would recommend either a Viper or Compustar with remote start. I always recommend the two way remote (pager style) so you know when your command is received by the vehicle. If you can swing it, also go with the smart phone app versions as well...

    I have the V.I.P system on my 2011 Tacoma. I woundnt recommend it....For most of the reasons stated above. Plus, aftermarket ones have alot of extra features.I wanted to make my doors lock when I put it in drive.......cant do this with toyota system but you can with some of the after market ones.
