Default Car security question

Hey guys shopping for a new car alarm, because i HATE/DESPISE my Karr one. Never wants to work, range sucks about 1-2 blocks and its no even sensitve enough. (Someone hit me and didn't go off).

So i wanted to ask you guys which system do you guys have/Like..

Sorry about all the Links SO Confused on all the new features???!!

Mine locks and Unlocks LOL. What do all these things mean?

I want good/decent secuirty (With a LCD remote) Good enough where it alerts me if somthing happends.


Choices Clifford, or Viper


Clifford Matrix RSX50.5 2-Way Security System / Remote Start System with Responder SST Technology (p/n 5301X)

Viper 791 XV 2 way Car Alarm/Remote Start System

FYI: Viper, Python, and Clifford are all made by the same company. DEI.

The two you posted are the same thing.

I know they are the same company, but with most companys they have their top of the line and bottom of the line stuff. I was asking if its worth getting a Viper/Clifford alarm compared to the Python or is it all the same performance and dosn't matter which one i get/.

I'm rocking the 791XV. For the price and amount of features, it would be stupid not to get it or something similar.

Usually around $100. Bestbuy does security installs but make sure to find out if they're reputable. Same applies to any installer. A buddy of mine who i know personally works at bestbuy auto install and he's fantastic. He did mine for free but slipped him $40. 4 years ago I paid something like $140 on my first integra.

if u want alarm that is reliable, i would always go with any DEI products (viper, pythin, clifford, avital, etc) or go with the compustar line. since you chose the Clifford matrix, you cant go wrong with that. if u paid 100 i guess that is pretty good for install. most shops around charge 170 for start and keyless.
