    Alarm and Remote Start on 14 WRX

    Has anyone installed an alarm with remote start recently? I had one on my previous 2.5rs and now I want to get one installed for my 14 WRX.

    If you have one, which brand did you go with and how much did it cost you with the modules, etc. The one I'm looking at is the Viper 5704 and possibly add the SmartStart feature depending on how much more it is.

    Suggestions?

    Can you get a remote starter on a manual?

    I don't have experience with installing on WRX's, but its possible to bypass the clutch.

    Honestly no shop is going to install a remote start on a manual car unless you find a shop that installs a neutral kill switch meaning if the car is in another gear besides neutral it will not start. I went in to a local shop and asked about a remote start they only had one ghetto remote start without security. Just ask around and see if a shop does manuals with a neutral kill switch.

    I had this idea initially. There are car alarms available that are compatible with manual transmissions. But I figured it was too much of a risk.

    I also later learned that Hellas are the best alarms.

    I just made a trip to car toys cuz I've wanted a remote start with security on my rex for quite some time and never really went to see if they would do such thing. They said they recently just got accepted to install remote starters with security on manual cars but it has to be a remote starter with security to be able to do it.

    What system did you go with? I looked at it on my 08 civic and I had to get the system and a module to make it work on the car.

    Yep, Best Buy. My buddy's brother is the installer so it was about $780 after discounts. Its the alarm kit itself + 2 modules. It should have been 1200.

    There's also a whole bunch of other things you can do like roll the windows up, make lights blink, turn on/off headlights but its all additional. The other thing I was going to add was the smart start which allows you to do everything through your iPhone but then I realized there's a monthly payment for that so I skipped out on that.

    Compustar is another option and are waaaaay more affordable. I've been looking into getting one and for the top of the line model it is $600 installed. That's $525 for the unit and an extra $75 to install the clutch override stuff for a manual transmission. Comes with a LCD remote, spare remote, and it's got 2 way paging for up to a mile. Just an FYI for others interested.
