What is a nice affordable alarm system?

Hey fellas,
My car didn't come with keyless entry or an alarm system. I have no idea why, but I guess I got the shaft. What is a nice alarm system that is affordable, and does keyless entry come with the alarm system. Also I'm looking for that CHIRP CHIRP when the alarm is ARMED. Thank you hope you guys can help me out.

About anything DEI is a good alarm system. Viper, Hornet, Python, Clifford, Avital. All these are by Directed Electronics Inc. and make a decent system. All will have the chirp for audible confirmation, plus the flashing the park lights for visual. Most have the option for keyless entry. I installed a Hornet over the weekend and it went just as easy as my Viper I have. I think you get a better warranty with Viper, but they seem to all be good.

I've been looking at a Python which is looking to run me about 200$. Is that gonna get me the protection I need? I'm getting it from a local circuit city and I'll probably have them install it since from what I understand it is free. Is the chirp that classic chirp cause I know they are all differant. I want the classic chirp not like a honk of the horn haha.. Thanks

Yeah, its the classic chirp confirmation. Do be careful what you leave in the car. And that really goes for anytime you are away from your car while being serviced. I used to get a magazine called Installation News. It was basically a mobile security magazine. It told of a lot of things like that. ESPECIALLY in the car audio world things can happen. It is real easy to program a third (or fourth) transmitter to your car. The theif walks up, disarms the alarm (some alarms can do it silently from the remote, no chirp), and takes what he/she wants. Some alarms (like the Omega family of alarms) will flash the LED to let you know how many remotes are coded to your alarm every time you turn your key on.

Do you guys think is is a real big ordeal.. Do you think it happens often? How can I avoid this if I dont' have the knowledge to make the installation myself?

p.s good looking out tough.

I would trust a local car audio/security shop if they've been around a long time (over 10 years) and carry name brand products. They dont give out quality car audio products to the fly-by-night stores.
