Check out metra's new alarm line. They have metalic style transmitters and stuff. If you've ever seen anything from scytek you know it's quality (sarcasm) any brain that can be taken apart without any tools doesn't really come across to me as solid.

Aftermarket Generation - the stuff that AutoGlow is selling now...there's a stellar brand. Incidentally it did require screws to open the brain - however the one piece antenna/shock sensor managed to fall apart completely. Also the main chip was programmed by a retard so none of the operation made sense.
Where's Metra's alarms at? No info on their site!

i doubt this is reall metra. metra makes dash kits and harnesses. Maybe its some made up website because if yu go metralonline/catalogues, nothing exists.

Scytek, to reiterate my above comments, makes product that is just about as reliable as any AFAIC. Their customer service and tech support leaves something to be desired however.

I have had my scytek alarm for over 2 years now and I totally love it. I am still on its original battery for the remote. I get great range. I honestly cant complane about their stuff one bit.

i got a scytek unit on my accord, a compustar pro p2w900fm-as on my mom's 02 camry after upgrading from 1-way artic start. Cant complain about either units. both very good and installed by myself.

noobie, are you using a 2way remote? i have never seen a scytek factory battery last more than 2 months. I use high capacity hybrid batteries and they last about 5 months under normal use. if i abuse it, then 3 and a half months.
