Hey 19Accord97,

I am also an installer at best buy, MECP Certified, the whole 9 yards....Judging by the name i assume you drive a 97 accord and what a coincidence, i do as well. I consider this vehicle to be one of the easiest ones out there to anything audio/video/alarm,etc....but to get to your questions, there is a lifetime warranty on the install on your alarm or any installation performed by best buy on your vehicle as long as you own it. you just have to bring in the install receipts to verify it. There is no charge to adjust the sensitivity on the alarm, but one of the drawbacks with the 350 is there is no external shock sensor. It is built in to the brain of the alarm, so sometimes it is not possible to place the brain on metal or the frame, so it is placed on a thick wiring harness. There are no sensors in the doors, the door triggers are hooked up so if the door is opened it will go off. One suggestion i would make would be to add on an additional motion sensor. This will cause your alarm to warn when it senses movement around the exterior of the vehicle and will trigger the alarm lets say if your windows are rolled down and someone reaches inside to grab something. I know this is a really late post but just wanted to give my and whether you would have gone with the viper or the python, they are the same thing. Directed Electronics makes both of these alarms plus many other major name brands.

hey bro yeah my car looks clean too so i HAD TO buy another BETTER alarm, i got it at circuit city, its a python model 700 with starter kill all for all its was like 260, about the sensivity u should check your manual it tells you how to adjust it to maximum level, i did it to mine within 5 mins, it takes a few times because it gets confusing, its a good alarm it always beeps me when someone tampered with my car and i go outside, and no one as always they run like girls, but yeah bro im considering that external motion sensor tomorrow i will take a trip to circuit city, all in all its worth it.
oh yeah and its a really loud alarm to scare off the clowns.
