Ummm, manuals + cheap remote start = bad idea. Installing them in a manual requires you to bypass the neutral safety switch. The car and remote starter both dont care if the car is in gear or not. It will roll forward or backward (even with the ebrake on, I've tried it at work on a buddys accord) and damage something, someone, etc.

There are one or two that are made for manuals but they're not cheap. It takes some thinking the night before.

You pull into your driveway, put the car in neutral, set the ebrake, press the remote start (with the car running), the remote start takes over, turn off key (remote start still has the car running), get out, lock the door with the remote starter, hit the remote start button again, car dies. Now, as long as the alarm hasnt gone off, a door hasnt been opened, the remote start will fire again in the morning. The PROBLEM is its still electronic, things still fail. Most of you guys/gals are gadgetry peoples. How many electronic things have you had fail in the last 5 years. I can count a number of things. Do you want to trust your ride to a $100 p.o.s. remote start that will leap your car into your house or across the street into the neighbors S2000?

The thing is, YOU might keep your car in neutral when parking, but what happens when your wife, g/f, designated driver, whatever, leaves it in gear, and you sleepily hit the remote start in the morning only to hear a crash? I have installed about 6 manual remote starters in my 20+ year in car audio/vide/security, and 2 were on employees of the company I worked for. Both of them found their car in a different place than where they parked it. One was chasing his locked car, down the driveway, pushing the remote trying to get it shut off.

I just cant stress the issue enough about getting a good remote start and install it on a slushbox.

Whew...time to go to work now...

Da_bull = a good point. The aftermarket shop i worked in wouldn't even sell remote starts for the exact reason he quoted.

i heard of one man with a remote start on his lamborghini, left it in gear and it rolled away and smashed into some other vehicle (this was apparently at a meet or similar)

meh, you might be able to take it to teh local stealership and have the remote system installed. But it's gonna cost you to have it done right.

You can use the automatic one ... and since BMW didn't start to utilize clutch-depressed-to-start until like 97, you just wire it like you would on an automatic.

Mind you, you'd never find me doing such a thing ... because the first time you forget to leave it in neutral, you push that button and it hops into your living room, you'll be wishing you chose to freeze your hands for a few minutes each day.

On older BMWs up to late 90s, you don't have to have the clutch depressed to start them ... they'll start with it engaged, disengaged, in gear, out of gear, however you want them to. Nothing to bypass.
