    I'm wondering the same thing. I have a new 2017 manual. Was thinking of CompuStar. Looking for info for price for the remote start and the price of labor altogether. I just hate the winter, would like to warm her up just a little instead of going out into the cold twice Not a huge deal but something I'm considering. These newer cars involve a lot more electronics. I've heard they don't start if it is in gear (if it's a remote start that is meant for manual transmission and installed properly) so not looking for a battle of how it's a horrible idea and will drive itself into a tree. I just know cars are more confusing these days and if anyone has recent experience as to install and price. Thank you.

    I do not have one on my 2015. However, I had a remote start on my old Buick. I also had an engine block heater on the Buick and currently have one on the WRX. I have found that I much prefer the block heater (put on a timer to come on a couple hours before I leave for work.) It will not provide instant comfort to "you" the way a running car will but it saves wear of a cold-start on the car and does help "a fair amount" for getting heat into the passenger cabin sooner. Can't remember the make of remote start I had but it was on an automatic. It had a lead for attachment to a hood switch which, when open, would not allow the car to start and shut it off if it was running in remote mode. So I imagine there are all sorts of systems with inputs for such things as 'neutral switch' position and 'e-brake position' which would work for the WRX. Sorry, can't recommend one though. I installed my old one myself and it was a PITA -- running wires through firewall, taking steering column apart to get at switch wires, installing resistors to mimic the GM security key deal, etc. In the end, I'd not go for a remote start any more and go with a block heater on a timer............

    Advanced keys sells a kit. You can buy the whole thing through smy performance on their website. It combines the push start with the remote start and proximity sensors.
