    I lived in Minnesota as well as Portland before. it was a God send especially if you have leather seats.

    I had compustar in the past on my Evo IX.

    If you had remote start before, it's easy to adapt.

    Sorry, us Americans are a pain. Actually it is hard to tell but that is my ST buried in that white stuff. Sold it a couple weeks back.

    I never put it in gear when parked, unless I'm on some kind of hill.

    But remote start is amazing. Nothing like getting into your car with the climate already set (heat on if it's cold plus seat/SW heater if you have them, AC on if it's hot), and engine/oil almost to temp before even moving. I miss remote start on my forester/STI...

    And remote start on manual is not an issue if the car has a neutral sensor. You hook that up to the alarm brain and have it fail to start if it does not sense the car is in neutral. That's how I set it up when I installed the 1 mile range compustar in those cars.

    If you want to make the trip to Soundwaves, CJ can get you set up with a Compustar remote, but they're not offering it "natively", so to speak.

    An STI that is parked near my car daily at the office--out in the Neutral Zone where people who care about their cars park--has remote start. Not sure what system is installed.
