I had one installed on mine. Don't know what the brand is but love it. So worth it. Went to Audio Express. It has an alarm and the remote start. Cost $250 installed.

no matter the brand of remote start most likely it will be made by DEI Electronics. Everyone from Viper to Phython are made by this company.

www.directed.com/Brands/

What sets them apart are features like two-way notification; built in alarms or other fancy functions like sms notification.

I'm not saying you can't install it yourself, but since safey and ignition systems are involved it might be best left to a shop with labor/equipment warranty.

You should be able to get a decent setup for $200 - $300 installed.

I just installed 2. One on my 07 fj and one on my Honda Fit. Both viper units. Got both kits for 60 a piece on eBay and they work great.

Do you have any recommendations or details on doing the install? I've had one sitting on the shelf for way too long now. Now that it's cooling down I really need to get in installed.

Really straight forward if you have an 07. They did not have an immobilized chip. I have a link I followed I'll post it up.
