ImPreSiV is a guruImPreSiV is a guru

had similar on my last car but it cost me considerably less. but that price you quotes is about normal for RRP. get the window roll up function and get boot popper installed. you'll find these 2 things very handy.

Once u get it installed ring up ur insurance company and tell them, because you should get a 10% discount on ur premium.

With my alarm this time, I am going to get the same thing basically, but keep the keypad from brant, so you still need to enter the code to start the car, but the whole alarm system will be changed to autowatch.
