am i gettin ripped off?
omg i just bought a Clifford Matrix 3.5 yesterday. Today I called Al & Ed's and asked them how much it is to install and they said $120 to install just the alarm, $100 to install the power window module. I already have power windows but they said i still need to get a module to control it with the remote. Is that true and should installation cost that much? So all in all it would cost me $220 to install the alarm and power windows with no remote start...

you definately need modules for the windows to use them for the remote. in fact. i have 2 used modules in my basement. i dont know if any type will work...but i have some that i used on my prelude. and that 220 without remote start isnt that bad. at least for around here in illinois its not. good luck.

thanks for your help guys...i didnt know how much it is for installation i probably would have gone with one of them hahaha. I found a place that would do everything: installation, windows up and down, and remote start for 150...

^--- $150 is a lot but i called a lot of places and all were 250 plus. Some wont even install the remote start on it. So $150 includes installation, remote start, and windows up & down...
