i wonder if the alarm installer can tap into the factory alarm so the panic button can be used to remote start. i think you should call them to ask i think thats your best shot. who really uses the panic button? i cant use it to find my car in the parking lot cause the remote doesnt reach far enough i think my remote only reaches like 25 ft (estimate)

Why would you want to use to the stock remote? I have an 06 and the range is really bad, I have to be really close to unlock or lock my doors. If your going to spend the money on a remote start alarm, which I recommend highly if you live in Miami, why not use the remote that comes with the alarm.


EDIT: Oh, do you want to use it because it's built into the key? Well when I get my alarm I'm also going to buy another key from the dealer that doesn't have the remote built in. I have yet to see these keys, but the salesman that sold me my car told me they exist and they sell them.

Not true on my 07. Range is very long, i would say close to 50 yards...also works when not in line of sight....when compared to my m3, where i have to be line of sight with the rear view mirror, and within 50' or so, it is quite refreshing.

as much as i think the range on the m3 blows, the cool thing is that it recharges itself through the ignition...considering my honda key has a screw on the back of it, i doubt that is the case...

50 yards? maybe i should replace my battery and see how far it reaches...

and no the batery doesnt recharge through the ignition you have to replace it when it dies. thats pretty cool though
