I was going to get a remote start. But it takes away from the fun factor of turning that key and hearing that nice sound. Always makes me smile

Remote start is the bomb...

1) you get to hear that nasty, guttural growl as you walk towards it...

2) when it's 102 and 95% humid, having the AC running just 1 minute before you get in is like heaven. (same can be said about having the heater running when it is near freezing).

3) the remote start also let's you drive, then have the ability to take your keys while the engine continues to run while you get the mail...or whatever... (press and hold until 1 horn honk while running and key in the ignition) With zero chance of someone jackin your ride. The minute the brake is pressed without the key, the car shuts off)

Great. Thats what i was thinking.
Did you install yours? and is your car a manual? wondering how to bypass the clutch.

You can disconnect the sensor at the pedal and complete the circuit with a small piece of wire. At least that's how I did it in my Avenger.

You forgot...

4. If you have a manual transmission and it's left in gear, once you hit the start button the starter will actually make the car lunge forward taking out a fence and my neighbors BMW.

I would not recommend getting a remote start if anyone else drives your car. Especially if it's a girlfriend who likes to use the transmission as a kickstand leaving it in first gear when parked and not applying the hand brake.

I never use the gear only the ebrake
But my wife does sometimes...
A guy i workd with had a show truck that was a manual and he left it in gear in a parkinglot and hit a light poll. He said he chased it and forgot about hitting the kill switch.
