Alarm System

Hey guys, im not really sure if this topic has been mentioned yet, but I just got a couple questions.
So Im looking to get an alarm system, mostly so that if in the middle of the night someone trys to jack my car, the alarm will go off so neighbors and I will hear it.
Im trying to figure which alarm is the best buy.
I cant afford an alarm for more then 100 bucks, cuz I also have to get it installed.
Any recommendation? ebay?
Also I want the alarm to be new.
Thanks guys.

Re: Alarm System

It was a joke... I am going to break this down as simply as I can...

Even a prelude that is in pretty bad shape is worth protecting right? I mean, the monetary value may be any where from $800 to Multiple thousands. But it is worth protectin our "baby" right? I believe you feel the same way since you started this thread.

Do NOT go cheap with this - you cannot PROPERLY install and protect your car with $100. sorry. AINT Gonna happen. Save some money and do this right. "How?" you ask?

FIRST: plan on spending an equivelant amount on the install as you do the purchase of the unit. Save some money and buy the alarm unit and the installation at the same place.

TWO: Buy an alarm brain with extra channels and upgradeable features you can add on later. This not only includes sensors but ALSO accessories like a hood/trunk pop, door poppers, lights, etc. THese things you do not need right now for the protection of your vehicle, but likely you are gonna want to upgrade in the future. Trust me; this is where you need to plan ahead.

So, your BASIC alarm is roughly going to be around $250 to $300. Plan on $300 for the install, which, by the way, gets you an extended manufacturers and installers warranty.

There you have your goal. $600.00 for an ADEQUATE alarm system that will Last as long as your car and Never cause you any problems.

--get it?
