I was told by my dealer (at Motorcars - Bedford Heights Ohio) that remote starter would be a dealer installed option... Apparently, this would not affect warranty and it would provide by itself auto-locking doors...(!)
Initially reluctant to the idea, but now not so sure...Would anybody else around consider it?
Any idea how much would it be?

Some details about remote starter

Just found out from my dealer:
-the device is not manufactured by Acura and, of course, is not covered by Acura warranty
-being dealer installed, it would not affect original Acura warranty
-they currently install it on Volvos and other Acuras and there were no problems so far
-when activated, engine starts but doors and steering wheel remain locked, so you can remotely warm-up the engine or seat cushions during winter time or cool down the interior in hot weather
-price is 399 plus tax

What I didn't find out:
-who's manufacturing it or any details about warranty
-weather or not it works the other way around (being able to stop the engine while running with the key in ignition - imagine that happening accidentally while in traffic!)


Has anybody had it before? Is it practical and does it really worth 399 plus tax?
Any opinion appreciated!
Thank you
