Reading Topic: Remote Car Starters
LBJay, that's a good point to know about the warranty. On a new car, always go factory if possible - let them be responsible.
If you can't go factory, then go with a reputable (and large) installer. Most of them will offer a lifetime warranty on installation, and if it's a major corporation, you have a chain to follow if there is a problem.
Don't get me wrong, I like the small mom-and-pop shops - alot. But unless you have a good track record, solid referrals, or an existing rapport, I would not risk having them do such a procedure on a new car (or any car, for that matter).
Any time I've had someone install something in my car (which isn't often, I usually do most of the work myself); I talk to the installer or bay manager extensively. If I like them, I'll let them do it. If I talk to someone that I like, I will request (i.e. demand) that they are the ones to work on my car.
Continue to keep us (or at least me) updated. I was seriously considering a remote starter as well.
Oh, and keep in mind that you shouldn't let your car idle for more than about 20 minutes without revving (i.e. driving).
