I'm sure the OEM security on that vehicle basically only covers door, trunk and hood trigger. Whereas the Viper will cover those features, along with built in shock sensor. You can then add glass break sensor, tilt sensor, proximity sensor, battery backup, ultrasonic sensor etc. So you have a lot more options for added protection. Like you said though, if you were to unlock the door with the button on the handle, it will not disarm the Viper. So you will have to decide how important that is to you. The Viper 5901 and 5902 are awesome units though.
I know nothing about programming the IKeys. I would be surprised if it could be done by someone besides the dealer though. Did you search on this site for info?
I kind of like button on the handle. Keeping the keys in the pocket is just convenient. Plus I don't think I will put anything aftermarket in it, since it is already fully loaded. If anything, I will put subs in. So I guess my decision is to just get the car starter. So do you think $350 installed is a good price, or is that steep?
Everywhere I have searched, they say go to the dealer. I am sure there has to be a way to do it. Maybe I need to make friends with someone who works in the Nissan Parts Department....lol You know what, I might just try to get a part time job there. They probably couldn;t pay me enough though.
Thanks for your input Toby!
