My Viper bit someone today.

I am walking out of a store today and my alarm goes off...some creepy guy swings quickly around and away from my car.....what a looser. he ducks his head into the trunk of an ol honda and tries to act inconspicuous.....he is so lucky I didn't see him yank on the handle of my car or whatever...maybe he just tripped and leaned hard on it , I have a tendency to jump to conclusoions...there are alot of breakins in the area. My insurance is actually lower because of the system.
I remember back in the day when I worked at radio shack, we used to sell these systems that notified you where ever you were that something was going on with your car without lettting the culprit know....one guys sytem went off and he found some guy under hiis dash taking out his system..he slammed the door on the guys legs...then the cops got there and beat on the guy more..whatev play you pay.

yeah two way alarms are the way to go, even if it's too late atleast you know before you walk out of somewhere unexpected an hour later with your car all busted up.

good systems are worth the money...i love being able to turn the sensitivity up so that if someone just puts their hands on the glass to see throgh the tint it'll go off....watching people jump gives added entertainment too.

I had a system like this on a classic Z car a few years back...annoyed the heck out of me. Whenever someone would slam their door too hard, play their loud (crappy) music, or breath too hard; it'd go off. I can appreciate a system that keeps the unwashed of society out of my car, but IMO, seemingly more trouble more than its worth.

I had a fancy system for a while that also had a pager. The thing was very annoying when parked anywhere but my front driveway. Way to many false alarms, and I never could get the sensitivity adjusted properly.

Every time I parked at my favorite watering hole, the pager went off 2-3 times....finally lost the receiver, so the problem solved itself.

Im just gonna get a black mamba and keep it in my car as security. Screw the alarm, that will tip off the thief. Instead, let em get into the ride and when they reach down to start yankin wires, etc, theyll get bit. Once they realize what happened, stealing a stereo will be the last thing on their mind. Even if they do proceed to get the stereo out, they wont make it far, so the stereo could be easily recovered.

Thats all well and fine until you figure out you can't get in the car yourself...
