Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month
Looks nice, has a sliding cover so you don't press the buttons accidentally. Buttons still feel solid today. Sliding cover still snaps back properly.
Haven't changed the battery till now (I bought it March 2012)
It's quite finicky. You need intermediate electrical skills to figure the wires out. It took me about 6 hours in total to get it up (figuring out the wires).
The module for the alarm system was poorly soldered. The pins were not done properly. I don't think I wanted to ship it back after I've spliced the wires and all, and it's very hard for DX to verify it unless they wanted to test it on their own car.
So in the end I used lots of cable ties to 'tighten' the module and the wire harness. Works fine. Had to re-tighten my cable ties 2 months ago. Mind you, my car is a very hard ride - Tein suspension system.
The bad module also caused me to second-guess my wiring and that's probably why I took so long to fix it.
As for how how it chirps and flashes your hazard lights, it's abit different from the usual. The usual ones are 1 chirp + flash for lock and 2 chirps + 2 flashes for unlock. This one goes:
Lock - 2 flashes, 3 chirps Unlock - 2 chirps, continuous flashing Engine on, drove, engine off, 2 chirps and a few flashes when not locked for 30 seconds.
Definitely value for money. And definitely not for the faint-hearted. Prepare yourself with electrical tape, splicers and voltmeter and you're good!
And oh, it might be good to figure out which wire under your dashboard goes where from your car manual first.
