    You can't go wrong with any of the top DEI lines.

    Compustar=:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Ont he other hand lack of money is pushing me towards DEI for my new alarm I am getting.

    That DEI Up there yeah, is a waste of money no pins, just a base model alarm with 1 shock sensor, not even dual zone. The biggest thing with alarms is you have to have the pins that will go off if touched, like hatch, dome light, hood, and that's where cost comes into play, but they go for like 40 each installed w/ an alarm usually so they catch up to you on price pretty fast.

    I've worked with clifford, alpine and Dei products (viper, sidewinder) and find the DEI shock sensor, when tied to the cars main harness as recommended to be the least likely to false and be the most consistent. If you can find a place to buy the DEI uninstalled, the pricing is very reasonable for the quality received. If relatively unfamiliar with auto wiring then pay to have the thing installed. Alarms are only as good as they are installed!
