Hi Nikki, I'd be inclined to phone around a few dealers in your area (even 50 miles away), to see what prices they quote. Labour rates aren't fixed by the manufacturer (only the specific times for jobs), so you may find a variation which is worth travelling for. Another possibility is to contact some reputable auto electricians in your area (since many will be used to installing/repairing car alarms) I can't see them having much difficulty in getting your system up & running (they will typically charge 40-50 per hour plus materials).

Hope this helps,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
