    Default Compustar

    S'up?! I'm curious to know who has the Compustar system and how they like it?!

    I wanna get it for my car (98 Civic DX HB) before I start to do anything major to it. Learned from my last vehicle was a wise idea to put in an alarm before doing stereo mods! Anyways....just curious to know who has it and what they like about it and also who I should go to in Calgary for the best deal!

    I would be VERY careful where you go. Do your research before going somewhere. There are good installers in the city, but there are also not so good ones.
    Autodream is very good, they have the compustars

    My aunt got her's done for $500, including install and tax in. I'm prolly in need of one pretty soon, so I'll see what kind of prices I can get if we have 3 or more buyers.

    Trust me go to Impressions Paul has 6 years of exp. and Rob's been installing for like 12 years. I heard the autodream guy only does good work for his friends, and the Rookie there does all the rest.

    as I stated in other forums how I install in a $1000 car will be the same as a $40K vehicle. as compustar goes, any one come to AutoDream and said they are from Beyond as of today will have it for $495 installed! and if you want to see the work, we can take you to the back and show you what we did to your car before we put your car together.

    Sillysilvia, if you like Impressions that is good, but I would appreciate it if you wouldn't talk about my shop unless you have something to back up your accusations with. And for the record we do not take shots at anyone. Thanks.

    I suggest you shop around, and ask to see what's going on in the shops we are doing 6-9 starters a day and will gladly show you how our work is done. I believe you should form an opinion for yourself, theres alot of people who like to take shots at us, Autodream and the others, Nguyen is a very good installer as are the guys at my shop, I don't believe in the statement " You get what you pay for" because the smaller shops offer a better price to promote more business, we also have lower overhead, and more personalized service, just because one guy forms an opinion of Auto dream or Impressions cause he didn't feel he was getting the Royal treatment or somebody told him that shop was shitty doesn't mean this will be the way you feel. Live your life through your own eyes and expieriences not others.

    They are special for $499 installed and if the door locks are intergraded at the same time it is only $35. I agree with above that you can shop where you like but don'tcut down other shops on these forums all it does is piss everyone off. But i do appreciate all of the props, thanks guys

    you can shop around there are more shops out there then just AutoDream and Impressions. just don't listen to the saleman alone, listen to you friends. see what they have to say about the product and the service. I don't want to trick you to come to my store then piss you off, I want you to come in as your own will.

    I guess my bad habit is that I still want to have a life after work too, so I hange out with the guys from other stores like Nick Cuong from autozeal, greg from contemporary and so on, so I don't take shots at any one.

    I've been shopping around ALOT lately cause I wanted to see who has the best alarm/starter paging unit.

    Went to Soundsaround yesterday and they were telling me about a unit called Ultrastart, went to Impressions to check out the Compustar and the dude there told me they're trying to get outta Compustar cause too too many problems with it. Said something like 6 out of every 10 they sell come back with problems. Also checked out the Viper 700 Series but unfortanetly that won't work with my manual transmission car.

    The guy at Visions who I talked to about the Viper gave me some useful information about the Compustar...he has it in his car and even gave me and my buddy a demonstration with his own car. I still think I'm going to go with the Compustar but as far as I know in Calgary there's only Impressions, Auto Temp, and Autodream that deal with the Compustar.

    Where is Autodream anyway?! I've had so many conflicting ideas thrown at me regarding two way paging alarm/starters and I want to check out Autodream as well. I'de probably go with the Viper but it won't work with my car....and that sucks major ass!!!
