bobk, where is that mentioned, that your warranty is void if not purchased through a DEI dealer?  I checked the owner's manual on directed's site for the 791xv and it only mentions the installation.

Ok I'm not getting it, I see installed and serviced as meaning the installation and setup of the alarm which I would have done by an authorized dealer, the initial purchase I might do through a non-authorized dealer to save money. 

Thanks for the quick reply and answer.

I can see trying to argue the point that the warranty doesn't specifically state the unit must be purchased and installed by an authorized dealer but to save about 100 bucks which is what I figure I could save, give or take I wouldn't mess with it.  I read the warranty up to the full caps and missed that part.   As I mentioned I would have it professionally installed anyway with a couple of extra modules.

I can set you up with a 2 way car alarm, with or without remote start. Well under $200, and includes vehicle wiring diagram and warranty. Email me for more info...

Why worry about the warranty?

If you're saving almost $100, just buy another one if the first one goes bad.  It's ridiculous to pay 50% more for the item just so you'll have a warranty.  It will cost you even more to have it professionally installed.  Just buy the alarm for $200 and install it yourself.  Screw DEI and their warranty.

I bought a Clifford AvantGuard 5 system that is supposedly NOT to be sold "over the counter".  These companies are so full of themselves.  I said Screw the purchase from authorized dealer that charges TWO TIMES what I can get it for elsewhere and installed it myself.  AvantGuards are just about the best alarms in the world.  It really isn't that hard.  A few more wires and connections than a typical alarm (because has anti-car jacking feature), but do-able none the less.

Just buy your alarm for the BEST deal and install it yourself.  It's spring time and usually nice weather to get outside and take on such a project.  You'll learn quite a bit and will be able to take pride in saving yourself about $200 worth of installation costs and you'll probably do a TEN TIMES better job than an installer would do on your car anyway.

Go for it and good luck!
