The title explains it all lol... I was looking at the Honda remote start and for the money I can get a real alarm system for the car which can also remote start the vehicle. I was looking at the viper alarm models 5901 and 5902 an they can be started from a mile away, have shock sensors, glass sensors, anti- jacking, remote start with climate control, and auto window up/down feature (70 bucks more), starter kill switch, location abilities, and many other goodies. I have never bought an alarm system but I hear Viper is basically the best. Before I buy I wanted to see if any one had any better suggestions. I live in NY so yea an alarm system is very necessary lol...
