Default help with choosing a car alarm.

So what do yall recommend for an alarm? I want one with a nice LCD remote. Has anyone bought one off ebay? I dont want to overspend on an alarm. I dont have 300 bucks to just waste. HELP PLEASE!!!

I say don't buy it 4rm e-bay unless you know what you are looking for and if you are going to do the installation your self
Well where i live I know the owner from this stereo shop I always get systems from him. He sold me a VIPER alarm $200.00 out the door cash no taxes he Even threw a glass detector in case they bust my windows the sensor will pick it up...At Circuit City they had thesame alarm for $350 + Taxes
I say shop around at your local Stereo Shops. You can even get a decent alarm for about $115.00 installed. Visit those stereo shops

Good luck[&:]

you get what you paid for, I learned that the hard way
I have 3 honda, and the cheap one I bought from jc whitney etc, sucks!!!
get a brand name it don't have to have a lcd, you want protection for your car not a cool looking key chain
I suggest clifford, or viper, most of the time they will last longer than the car

but LCD is a cool thing to have,
