The choices are Viper 5900 or the Compustar 2WSS-AS. I want trunk protection as well as glass break and if it is there shock the hell out of someone that touches the car, sorry about that. Starter disable and battery disconnect built in also if possible. Let me know the in and outs of each from people that own these. They just took the face of my stereo and broke glass out on pass. front and took dash apart a little, nothing to major; THIS TIME.

I think security systems are pointless. So what if the car makes a noise, the guy is still gonna be long gone by the time anyone gets to the car. A car alarm isn't going to scare off a professional. I would advise you to not leave your faceplate attached when you park the car. I leave mine locked in the glovebox or the trunk.

Going with the ScyTek Vision Guard 6000. This is a link to a 8000 which seems the same http://scytek.net/product_precisionV...Guard8000.html a guy on Ebay has them for 253.99 shipped. I will try an report on the install and ease of operation.

Yahh I would agree with some of that statement. I will tellya if his was just broken into, a alarm will at least keep the "NON-Professional" thiefs from attempting to take a stereo ETC... No alarm is going to stop all attempts to steal the car, but it will for sure s-l-o-w them down. Hopefully enough so you can keep your ride... Roger

Well dude took the alarm off e-bay. So now i think the viper 5900 p/n 5301v is my next choice. I am getting a hood and trunk pin switch, motion sensor for exterior of car(so if one gets close it will give warning and get even closer alrm triggers), and doing fuel pump cut off as mentioned on forum and the alarm comes with starter kill. Looking at Steadfast column lock also.

Don't forget the hood lock, the alarm doesn't help much if they just pop the hood and disconnect the battery or cut the siren wires.

Get ready for a lot of false alarms! BTW, do you have tinted windows?? If so the motion sensor will be a PITA to set properly.

Are you doing the install yourself? Not trying to insult you or anything, but you don't sound like you know how to set up a security system. The install is the key to security! 90% atleast

I've installed in my earlier years, mainly stereos. http://www.the12volt.com/adv/redirec...fault%2Easp%3F has all the info for me to install it correctly, i use solder on everything electrical since 1985. I have few other tricks to hide the brain instead of under the dash. I want to wait for the new Compustar but the viper has everything i need for battery backup window up/down modules sensors and so on. Thanks for the help and advice.
