That is an excellent deal if it's OTD price.
Please share the details of the dealership so that others can benefit too.

If i was putting addition alarm my Ist choice and one of the best car alarms is
The Viper 5901 top of the line ....... $500
My second choice depending on my budget and what exactly i need would be
The Python 991
You wont be disappointed with either alarm system. Both alarms have lower grade model systems.
I know on the viper 5901 you could monitor your car and activity from your phone. Well worth it if you live in the projects or in the hood.
The only problem i see with alot of these alarms is How and Where they are wired to your vehicle. Your vehicle has alot of high Tech features I would call honda and also i would speak with several people in the alarm profession 1st.
A) If you live in the projects then you are most likely a low income family, i.e. falling under the governments definition of low income, and most likely will not have funds to purchase a $20,000+ vehicle.
B)Having grown up in the Bronx, not the "hood portion" but it seemed that people from the "hood" would deliberately travel to our area to break into cars. I can tell you that no matter what alarm you have, they know how to disable it. So, if you live in the "hood" save the money you would be spending on the alarm, and park, in the under the building secure garage. However, that is not a guarantee either. Someone broke into the garage once, too. But, it was under video survelance, and they were cought. But, they did break into every single car (busted at least 1 window in every car).
Having made the 2 points above, I will tell you, Alarms are USELESS. They are just noise makers, and no one is paying attention to them. Thieves will disable the alarm before it even has a chance to go off. The only people it will deter, are the kids, who are starting out as car thieves. They will quikcly learn how to disable any car alarm.
Most cars these days come with immobilizers, meaning that they can't be hot wired. But, it has not stopped people from towing them with a rogue/stolen tow truck.
If you live in a questionable neighborhood, you are better off getting into secured parking, and/or increasing your insurance coverage. Those are pretty much the only 2 guaranteed things.
Speaking of insurance, back in the 90's, when I lived in the Bronx, full coverage on a brand new Honda Civic was $5,000/year, or 1/3rd cost of the car!!!!

PLEASE, no more of the very off topic alarm discussion. Please respect the board's topic and stay on topic.

I work in the Bronx (the bad part, although its not as bad as it was back in the day) and agree with you 100% about car alarms. They are useless!

Hello everyone - thanks for all the detailed information. This has been a very useful forum. I live in Atlanta, GA and can get the LX for $21,700 OTD. Due to my budget, I offered the dealership $21,500 OTD and walked away. Can I get some input on how good these prices are?
Thanks in advance.

Blueiedgod did not initiate the discussion about alarms but I, and I'm guessing others found his input insightful, therefore useful to the readers of this forum - if you did not, you have the option to move on to the next post.
