    I know nothing about security/remote starters. I am looking for just a remote starter, i dont have the OEM security system. Any ideas on a good/cheap system that i can use to turn my car on with a key fob. I dont mind using another fob other than the OEM one. Any suggestions please

    I have the compustar in my 03. The remote start wont activate unless you stop the car, leave it in neutral, put on the handbrake, turn off the car (it will stay running), exit the car, hit the lock button. At that point the remote starter will work. It also has windshield pageing and is good upto about 1 mile from car (never tested any real distance). Works great.

    this guy that my friend knows told me he can put it in my car for $400. the only thing he said was that he would not give me the papers, because he doesn't want anything leading back to him at all. it just covers his but, thats all. i just don't know if that sounds like a good deal or not cuz my friend got his car for $200 but then again it's an F-150 2004

    So this thread is kinda dead and I am kinda reviving it but... I have the upgraded security system on 02 wrx manual. I was wondering if there was a remote start that used the factory security system as I only want to carry one remote. I can do the install on the manual transmission as well, so no big deal there. Just looking for suggestions

    of my understanding is that you cant have both with one remote becuase thats what i ran through when fitted mine !

    So what you are saying is that if I want them both on the same remote I will have to replace the alarm system? That sucks. I guess I might get a turbo timer to warm the car up on those icey cold winter mornings.
