    Definitely mate

    Be sure to have it professionally fitted It will save you headaches like you mention above

    Have you removed the other one now and put it all back to how it was?

    I paid £160 for mine of that guy, shit loads of sensors too plus he gave me phone support on how to get into programming mode, I was literally pulling my hair out lol

    100% recomended and a great alarm, be sure to go for the dual zone microwave sensor, it'll bleep when someone walks by too close

    Forgot to mention that alarm can have an option of remote start aswell, modules are in the region of £50-120 depending on which make you get because theres quite a few brands that will match with this alarm like hornet, cobra etc.

    Forget remote start!
    Many insurers wont insure cars with it fitted (or pay out in the event). Be sure to read the small print if you do go for it

    Yep it was just for the alarm and various sensors and a relay. I fitted it myself and its perfect, you can't really go wrong with toad. I can control my sidelights + front fogs from the alarm

    Remote start can be fitted later on down the line, just make sure you tell the guy so he doesn't cut the wire all off, its just one wire that you'll need. But I wouldn't recomend remote start because then your EWS is by-passed and theifs can still take your car if they find both immobilisation points, usually one at the starter wire and one at the fuel pump relay on bm's.
