    Useful links? Post them here!

    There are way too many repeat questions asked in this forum and the truth is searching can at times be difficult. Rather than yelling at a noob every time he asks a question that has been asked recently you can just refer him to this thread.

    Post any links that you feel answer commonly asked questions. Don't go overboard though as too much info doesn't necessarily make life any easier.


    Here's a few I think are pretty useful:

    Go to your local shop to listen, go to ebay to save $$$. ebay doesn't always offer the cheapest price, but I've found that its always a good starting point. I do shop the net at sites like infinitecaraudio.com. I have purchased at local shops only when I couldn't get a decent price online or on ebay.

    Stumbled across this. Pretty useful for newbs just to understand what they should be looking to do when designing their system.

    It is awesome, a Canadian company makes a product to install a remote starter.
    www.fortinbypass.com and search your year and model.
    I had one installed in my BMW and it works perfectly.
    No more freezing in winter.
