Default '13 impreza remote start

I was digging around on subaru genuine parts dot com, and I saw the remote start fob for 300ish. I assume this is the cost of the kit and not just the keyfob.

Any idea what the install job involves? (Average cost for an install?)

That is the complete kit. Once installed, you have two fobs that need programed to your car. It integrates with your car alarm and door locks. When you start the car, the doors will lock if they are not already. The engine will stop as soon as you open a door, although you can unlock and open the trunk without the engine dying. I have found it starts the car from a pretty good distance inside the building where I work in the basement. I'm maybe 60 yards as a crow flies away with a couple of block walls and a cement/steel ceiling above me.

As for the install, I found the install doc online and decided to let the dealer do the install. The steering column gets opened up to plug in the connector at the switch, the control module goes under the dash and connected in, the antenna needs routed up the A pillar and attaches near the rear view mirror. The A pillar trim needs removed as does the knee air bag. It took a dealer about 3 hours to do the install.

I should say I am comfortable running and connecting wiring. When I saw what was involved, I decided not to mess with it.

exactly, i had the dealer install on my gf's 13 impreza. Let the dealer do it. avoid the hassle of screwing up the warranty.

Awesome details - thanks for the comprehensive info!

Seems like an odd design to have the car turn off when opening the door - safety issue?

Supposedly, it is a safety thing, although the steering would be locked anyway. I only know what I was told. In any case, I can live with it.

NOTE: If you were to decide to take your car in and have this done, they will need all three keys when they associate the starter fobs with the car. That includes the valet key.
