    only valuable advice I can give is too NOT get a Crimestopper brand..had one on my T/A and it was a piece--that's why it stayed with the car when i traded. Not an install issue, but the system itself sucked--they replaced processor for me once cause first one completely died; but the system never worked well--always started the car fine, but the paging alarm was quircky and unreliable.

    Viper or Clifford are good, same alarm different remote colors. Noth the longest lasting and usually overpriced.

    My opinion for long lasting and well built, but not quite as gimmeky Is-Comptstar. Anyone who knows alarm will agree.
    If you want a long lasting alarm that works for 6spd or auto, Compustar alarms will last years and I beat my LCD to death at work and dropping it drunkand it still lasted years. They are some of the best systems I have seen.

    Prestige and Code both make a qualitly product for a good price. My code in my trailblazer is almost 3 yrs old and works like new except for the LCD remote, been dropped one too many times.

    Autopage makes some nice new alarm/starters.

    I had a clifford, before they were bought by the same company that owns viper...it was crap!!! never worked it was no longer under warranty after it got bought out.
    I replaced it with a autopage alarm/remote start and have not had any problems with it.

    I'd have to say Viper. I have a ten + year old Viper system on my GM tuner. Never had any trouble with it and my car is 17yrs old.

    I would say Viper is the king of this arena. Pretty much the household name for alarms. I also agree with 02WS6Dream. Don't get Crimestopper. Had one in my Lumina because a "deal" from a place that I got it installed at when I was still "dumb" at car stuff. It was actually almost as much as the Viper system and they really did overcharge me $160 for that. One remote broke, and sometimes the remote is weak and it is hard to unarm at times.

    i have the prestige one and at first it sucked. it would only turn on and none of the features worked. i took it back to my guy and told him to make it better and he made it so i can open my widows ,open my headlights, turn on the radio alone without turning on the car. it just was better and i got a good deal on it. it also helps if you get a good guy to install it
