Sweet deal. Installation (local shop) was $200 a couple years ago when I bought my dad one.

Wish this included manual transmission!

I got this clarified with the the Geek Squad. If your car key has an imbeded chip in the thick plastic part of the ignition key, you will need the said "parts needed". My Mazda did not have this so I was all set. if your car does then it would run you an extra $100-$150

same one that ABC warehouse sells for $98 installed. had one installed in a PT cruiser that was basic if your car has any antitheft system you will need to buy a bypass module. it does work good for as cheap as it is.

I got this installed 2 years before for 180$. Exact same product. Works great on my Honda civic. The range is really nice.
Usually there is a 15$ additional part which is a hook switch (that goes near the windshield tubes) that prevents engine to turn on when the hood is open.

Biggest advantage of getting it installed at BestBuy is

1. Lifetime warranty on the product and also free labor for any issues.

For instance.. I had a broken alternator after an year and manufacturer put the finger on this starter and the BB just got it removed and told me to come back to get it reconnected and setup once they nail down the problem and there was not a penny charged.

You can get a two way unit installed (basic of course, extras, as people have mentioned with certain cars) for $134

2way remote starter [bestbuy.com]

EDIT: Nevermind, looks like this is only the 2way upgrade cost. It's more like $250.

That's an immobilizer bypass which you can find online for like $30 (pkall is pretty universal) and it literally is about 6 wires that you need to connect.

I believe you can order one online and bring it with you to best buy when they install the remote start. They still may charge you a small install fee, but its a lot better than what they charge for the bypass themselves.

I got a Camry SE '11 with push start with remote ignition & sensor entry. After remote start, once you open the car door the engine would shuts off, making you have to restart the engine. Can't help since it is a safety issue with push start ignition, otherwise theft would jump in your car and drives away
