Um some of the best out there are compustar and viper but it all really depends on
What your looking for in your alarm. I got a python I think it's a 902s or something, I can find out for you.
I'm happy with it but I do wish it was more sensitive. I got it on max sensativity and its not doing it for me.

Compustar really has the best options for add on's later. For instance if u think a base model is ok, but later u find out u want more ( remote starter, proximity sensors, etc) I could find u a list if ud like.

Although my python also has plenty of room for add ons. U never know what cool can come out in the future.

Any reputable 2 way alarm is fine. The more range the better since nobody pays attention to sirens anymore. I always lea towards the compustar 2 ways based on range and price/quality.

As the ultimate saying goes....which will hold true for a long time to come..."Your alarm system is only as good as the guy that installed it"

A quality install should be pretty difficult to even see anything was touched under the dash or under the hood and takes a fair bit of time. a "beep beep" install which seems to be what 90% of shops are doing is just that... you push the button.. siren goes beep beep.. look under the dash and it's a mess.

Don't we have a dedicated "Car Alarm and Mobile Security" page for this issue on this forum?
There's plenty of valuable information for you there, along with the replies you got so far.
