automatic car starter

hey what's up bros.....i usually do research before asking dumb newbie questions but for some reason i cant find what i'm looking for and i was wondering if i could get some people to shed some light on this deal.

so my friend just got this car starter where he starts it with a remote in his key chain........anyway i meant to ask him where he got it and how much he put in for it, but it kept slipping my mind and now that its summer time dudes in houston and i'm not sure where to go........thats all folks all help is appreciated bros.

Sorry I cant help you with where to find it, but I do know that if you have a manual transmission you cannot use one of those, so unless you have an automatic, youre SOL.

they make them that can be used safely on manual transmissions as well as automatics.

Very true. My aunt has one on her 00 Prelude. They put it on at the dealership. I'm pretty sure it was NOT a factory option. You can find automatic starters at Best Buy/ Circut City/ etc. You probably gotta look a lil harder for the ones you can use on sticks though.

No prob. You can get stuff installed at Best Buy/Circut City in the same place as they do all the car stereo stuff, but its better if you ask about the work at each particular store. Some of the guys are real good (like the ones at the Circut City near me) then some of em are just doin the job well enough to not get fired.

If you order it off cartoys, you could still get it installed at a BB/CC, just talk to the guys about it first and see how well they do their work. A body shop should be able to install the starter too. it all depends on the workers and the $$/hr for labor. Circut City near me is like $44/hr I think. Prices range so much for body shop, you just gotta phone first and ask. Good luck tho.

JUST DON"T GO TO THE DALERSHIP!!!! Unless you got a hookup. Labor charges at the dealership are murder.
