    I have remote start in my manual wrx. It's setup to only start when it is in neutral. Nothing happens when it's in gear.

    Its a viper system.

    Not true actually you have to have it in neutral. Ive had one on my M/T for a year and half with no problems at all. Its a Python(same guys that make Viper).

    It's not exactly the hardest thing to deal with. When you're ready to turn off the car, pull up the parking break and hit both buttons on the remote. This will tell the alarm/remote start to keep the car running. Leave the car out of gear and get out. Hit the lock button, and the alarm is armed. Hit both buttons again, and the engine turns off. You'll need to do a small amount of wiring for the clutch depress starter disable. Other than that, just follow that process religiously and you should be fine.

    I have heard that they do make parts for use with remote start on manual transmission equipped cars.
