ok so i really need some kind of alarm on my car. well not really casue the town i live in isnt bad at all. never eeven heard of a stolen car but i just wanna feel more safe. problem is i am in a huge budget. and i font have power locks. here was my plan....

ebay door lock kit...

and basic ebay alarm.

whats your guys opinions on these? i a not after anything spectacular. just for me to be able to lock my doors when i walk away and hopefully a beep if someone tries messing with my shit. i will have many other anti theft devices including a special program burned on my 2 timer chip on a hidden switch that will make it so u can never start the car untill the switch is flipped. this will be going in my 93 civic hatch.

I can advice you that a good alarm is like a good engine, turb, or suspension setup you pay for wat you get. So don't be cheap when it comes to it. I got a kit install from 1 of the local alarm/stereo shop and with in about a year now the horn is dead and there pager is dead. Spend you moeny wisly.

I got a black widow for 150 installed. Whatever you end up getting turn the sensativity to the highest level possible. Right now if the wind blows hard, it rains hard, someone kicks a tire, a harley or a loud car drives by, or even if it thunders loud my alarm goes off. Thats all fine by me, it can be annoying sometimes but it's worth it. My car got keyed and someone tried to break into it, I bought the alarm and ever since then I haven't had a problem.

virtually nothing. thats why i am not to worried. i have owned the car for a year now and i havent been able to lock the passenger door since i got it lol. ya its been unlocked for a year. so i am not really worried. i more or less want it so if people are watching me they see the alarm get set and know its there. its just a deturant.

an alarm is only as good as the install.....ive seen cars with vipers and cliffords etc get stolen in front of peoples houses under there window with these known alarms....


if you want it just for noise and deturant hook it up how the directions say.....if want it to protect you from the serial rapist lemme know.....

tons of alarms come with it. the place i work we sell a system called prostart. its a 2 way alarm system with lcd monitering screen to tell u where your car was touched aswell as built in parking timer, turbo timer, door lock, trunk lock/release.... and a few other things. and obviously car start. its about 200 bucks. i just dont have that kinda cash.

True Dat! I've seen alarms installed without all the parts (ie shock sensors) Just make sure you test it before you leave the shop if you go that route.

I agree. I've used nothing but DEI. Vipers are great. I've been using a Viper 500ESP in mine for 10 years still goes off when the wind blows. Combined with my 2 American Bulldogs and the fact that everyone and their momma knows that I have a pistol and know how and will use it keeps my ride safe.
