Yeah, any local tech shop will be able to install a good one. Around here, Viper systems are held in high regard.

viper is made by D.E.I as well as several other brands. code alarm is another one i've used and liked. I would suggest if you don't know how to install them take it to a professional shop (that solders connections) and have them do it. it's very easy to damage electronics in the car if you install these incorrectly.

I've personally used Viper for the past couple of years and they have worked fine. My only complaint is that they have cheaply built remotes in my opinion. I no longer use Viper on my focus mainly because of the remotes and because I wanted something new. I am currently using a Compustar Pro unit which is an awesome system. I also have the Compustar Drone hooked up so I can use my Iphone to control the whole alarm system. You should check them out.

Is it an "S" model with no options? Last I checked, the focus came with the PATS system.
