just wonderin, looking at car alarms and there is a level 3 and level 4 alarm exactly the same price, only difference is level 4 has "remote engine start"... now Im thinking of getting this one because its the next level for the same price, now the "remote engine start", is that what it says it is...?

does it start the engine when u press the button?

whats the point?

I have this feature in my Elantra

If you leave your A/C turned on either to hot or cold depending on climate at time then when you jump into your car it will be already at temperature you have set

DAMN good idea when your cars been sitting in sun at work for last 9 hours baking in sun, start car before you get to it with A/C cranked and you don't get that woft of hot air that comes out when you open door and don't sweat your a** off for first 10 minutes whilst in car

Just remember to leave your car in neutral though if you have manual or you'll find it taking off down the carpark :(
