    Clifford has some of the best stuff (DEI)

    What are you looking for in your alarm? If you want all the bells and whistles, get the RSX 3.5. It even has remote start like mine

      Someone posted this link yesterday for one of my "funnies" but I think it would make a good alarm with some relays: http://www.powerlabs.org/emguns.htm

      But on a serious note, Clifford or Prestige is the way to go (actually I think thats all the options you have ). If someone tries to sell you Compustar RUN!!!
      Never be afraid to do something yourself. Remember - amateur built the Ark, professionals built the Titanic.

            the answer is smoke

            If you need something that works you have to make it yourself.
            There no thiefes in this world that respect a car that blinks and sounds it horns people just wake by anyway. In my last car I had a teargas grenade coupled in on the alarm. You could of cause use a simple smoke machine like the ones nightclubs use. Then the thief can't see anything he can't steal your car and can't see your gear.

                I have a "silent" alarm on mine. I've got a remote door chime wired into some sensors and when one of those gets tripped, a bell goes off in my house.

                Doesn't scare the guy away, because I don't want the attempted theif to know I'm flanking him with my Berretta

                  Because its a POS. The remotes are flimsy (the only good ones were version 1), you drop it once be prepared to spend upwards of 50 bucks (close to 80 depending on the distributor). Their rules of dealing with distributors are messed up and noone wants to deal with them.

                    If you want all the bells and whistles then go with Viper. Its the most advanced and has the most bells and whistles of any alarm system. But its also the most expensive. Just for your info. DEI manufacturers Viper, Clifford and numerous other alarm systems that are sold under different names.

                    Go to http://www.directed.com/ for more info on their entire lineup of products.

                    Stay away from Prestige. When they were made by Pioneer they were good alarms but now they are made by someone else that has a bad reputation.

                    While I like the above approach its not something I would recomend. Especially in AZ. However the laws in your state may differ. I also am not a lawyer.

                    And its BERETTA. Get it right. LOL. They do however make the best alarm systems. LOL

                        Let's use logic, people. Thieves steal cause they usually don't have. If a thief is stealing your car, and you start shooting at him.. you will have to hit your car to get to him. He, being a thief, will most likely not have $$$ to fix your own self-inflicted damage.

                            I do like that tear gas idea. However, 1) is it legal, and 2) will the gas disipate easily afterwards or will it stay in the car seats?

                            Also, I suppose a tiny nozel under the driver's side visor can spray anyone trying to start the car without entering a code with mace... if mace is legal in your state.

                              no no no no! you don't ACTUALLY shoot the guy....then you go to jail!

                              You use the gun to keep him there till the police arrive. This is the sole reason I have a laser sight on my Beretta. For some reason, criminals always think that if you do shoot at them then you are gonna miss, but if there is a dot on their chest they don't try anything.

                              When I was in high school, my car got broken into a lot. I asked an officer what I could do if I caught the guy red-handed, and he simply replied "call us." He then told me that if I were to physically restrain the subject I would be arrested for assault. Basically, if you catch a guy breaking into your car the only thing you can do is call the cops and watch the guy walk away with your stuff while the police finish eating thier donuts.

                              Now, with a 9mm pistol pointed at the guy with the laser, you can call the police on your cell phone and say "I have caught someone breaking into my car. I have my pistol trained on him right now. My address is XXX. I am wearing XXX."

                              Now that the police know that a firearm is involved, they will get there QUICK. Granted, you will have guns pointed at you when they show up and you will have to sit in the back of a police car, the would be thief will not have stolen anything and will be properly punished. He will als be much less likely to attempt something like that again.
