You do know that Viper and Avital are both made by DEI right

That being said, My brother (Installer for 15 years) only uses Viper alarms. I am using a Viper 791XV, I love it! I have had that same model alarm in three different vehicles. Not one problem.

In all the years that we've had cars with alarms they never seemed to stop people from breaking in or stealing them. lol I think all they give you is peace of mind. A person who knows what they are doing won't let it deter them.

A good compliment to any alarm system is a deadbolt to lock the hood so the thief cant get under the hood and cut wires. The only alarm I had on my 1983 Monte Carlo SS was a Wolo hood lock that also cut out the ignition system when armed...
