I'm starting to look for an aftermarket alarm system to put in a 92 lude. (Had some problems w/ theft-muffler cut off and "H" emblems stolen).
Any recommendations on a good alarm system? Looking for a really good one that will keep people away.
Thanks

how are the viper alarms? is the 300 model any use at all, or a waste of money. should i go up to the 500/800?

With the problems you've run into I suggest the pager alarm system. On the pager, it will let you know what type of attack is being done to your car.

good luck

i thought you said "paper alarm system" for a second. maybe i should go to bed.

oh yeah, i have the clifford intelligard 7000, it's just under $400 installed and i love it.

So you decided aladdin instead of compustar? I dunno, i never compared



</font>
hmm... i dunno, i just always had my mind set on that one instead of compustar. plus it has like 2 more useful feautures over compustar... i cant remember right now what thry were but i remember reading about that in that long thread about a guy who just got his compustar in and posted pics and stuff... that was awhile back.

hey, if u get an alarm too, we should go get it installed together... maybe a discoutn? though i doubt it =T

Yah, it was jkoc...i recently helped him install that trunk popper thinger...

Those two features i remember were quite useless....something like vibration alert or somethinng to that sort...i just remember i didn't care for it. I guess i like the compustar cuz I remember the display being much clearer than the aladdinn. Oh well, i dunno. Anyways, i already have an alarm...don't think i'm gonna get another....

yea thats one of the things, and i totally want the vibrate option. think of it as the vibrate option on your phone that u use while ur in the library or class or some place important where the sound of your phone would be disturbing. thats why i really like to have the vib ability


oh yea, i totally forgot u ALREADY have an alarm! hahaha

I was wondering if anyone has ordered an alarm off of autotoys.com? They seem to have good prices.
Also what are some other good sites for alarms.

thought id chime in here on the CST-2000 vs. A2000, i just bought a compustar 2000AS over the aladdin 2000 after hearing jkoc's review of it a few weeks ago... ive been havin some probs shortly after installation but its all strictly programming, its been a while cuz i didnt get it installed at an authorized dealer as well

after doin the comparisons for quite a while, the turbo timer and vibration were the only two features that the aladdin offered, but personally i felt that the CST had a bit of a better dealer network... if you really, really need the vibration then go ahead with the a2k, but i havent had any falses (even with the shock sensor set on max), and when i do get an alert id prefer to hear it as loudly as possible, hehe

but ah well, aside from those differences the systems are pretty much identical, so if you're set on the a2k then its fine

yeah, personally i think the compustar has the better looking remote


btw, would unplugging the negative battery terminal reset the alarm-brain and its programming? of course the ECU/radio will also be reset, and im fairly sure the alarm doesnt have another power source

The viper alarm on my truck (600 series) is a POS. I've taken it in to the install place every year since I bought it cause something has gone wrong. I've had the alarm brain replaced once and I'm pretty sure it needs done again. Personally I would steer clear of viper.

almost all the installers out there will recommend a DEI system tho, so replacing/buying one (viper, python, hornet, etc.) is the easiest way to go, kinda sucks considering theres no other really reputable names in the industry right now (cept alpine of course)

hmm, yeah, i've gone to a couple big shops, and they all basically only sell vipers, and say DEI is the largest alarm maker, and they would recommend them, or alpine -- but since they don't sell alpine, go with dei. what would be a good alpine system that has the same basic features as the viper 500/600 ?

im not sure what features that system has, but if you're looking for remote start, then the 8028(i think?) is your best bet, theres only two remote start systems, one has an LCD display and the other does not, the display-version is just a waste of extra cash, it just gives a history of when the alarm was triggered, (lotta good that'll do ya AFTER they rip off your stuff)

anyway, i got my compustar installed a while ago and i have pix of the pager, but they're at my comp at home and i wont be back for another 4 1/2 hours.. jkoc is the first one here that got it installed too, so if he sees this then he can post as well

the pager looks a lot bigger than it really is on the site, its jus like 1cm longer/wider/thicker jus to give you an idea for now
