Lights look good Steph! Sorry to hear about the ding...I got one too from backing into a jackass parked illegally that I could not see on my rear bumper. Just some paint trading though (I owe him $200 I need to drop in the mail to call it settled).

Good of ya to step up!
So. The Shoop's alarm / locking system is totally random. It locks whenever. If I lock it but it's already locked, it honks once. Sometimes it honks when I lock it.. It will lock itself as soon as you are ready to open the door. The blue light in my windshield blinks eternally. It's really whatever the f***.
Today, I heard the Shoopster's alarm honk go off for the first time. As I was driving. Stopped at a red light. MEEP!
"...hey someone's got horns like mine..."
"...Wait a minute that's me! Wtf..."
Meep meep meep meep...
I had to unlock the doors with my starter to stop it.
So now I know what my alarm sounds like. Never heard it before, I even wondered if it worked... I guess i'll keep wondering, then :/
Good thing I ve got a tonne of other security features... Guess the alarm goes on the to-do list...
I took out the little horn that beeps when you trigger the factory alarm. But now the only keyfob I got is teh busted. So I have to lock the doors by hand(no door button or key fob when it works!) Or it will, without fail, alarm when I open the door with the key.
Meeeep! Meeeeep! Meeeeep!
I'm wondering if yours is a gremlin caused by your recent crunch. When you did your dash out heater fix did you see the alarm box? Might not hurt to check it out and any sensors/ switches under hood. If its aftermarket there should be a minimum of a hood switch...that could be all effed up from the Toyota missile that mistakenly borrowed the shoop's launch ramp.
when my friends come up, i hear, "you sold the camarrrroooh.....HOLY BLEEP A WRX!"
Ya has that effect on me too.
