I just installed a viper alarm over the last few days... it wasn't easy, and I totally voided my warranty for the alarm system. Then again, my logic is such that if the car is stolen, or broken into, then the insurance company is paying for the stuff, not the alarm company.

That being said, I saved $170 on installation.

To answer your question, no about the remote start. And sorta no about the alarm wiring. If you have a multimeter, good electronic diagnostic skills, then you should be able to get it figured out. Here are all of the wires that I had to either tap into or cut and tap into:

Steering column:
- parking light switch
- +12V ignition wire (ON)
- +12V starter wire
- +12V constant wire

Under dash (black box with blue and grey wiring harnesses feeding into it):
- +12V door unlock
- +12V door lock

Door trim (tapped this under the trim on driver's side):
- +12V door sensor

Engine bay:
- pushed horn wire through plug hole behind pedals. Mounted w/ one screw on fuse box. Other horn wire tapped to GND screw on the auto body.

Then of course, you had to figure out where to mount the glass-break sensor, the shock sensor, LED warning light, and valet switch.

Don't even think of doing an auto alarm install if you're not comfortable cutting the starter wire in your car. Once you start the installation, it's not like you can just close up your car and drive.

I've installed auto starts and alarms but was too lazy to troubleshoot the wires. I'm thinking about ordering the wiring diagrams from Subaru. Part number MSA5T0216A. Has anyone order this? Is it helpful?

Why not just have a dealership or alarm place install it? I think that it would cost the same, considering you want to buy a shop manual (and then add shipping).

I was just too damn cheap. Once I figured out the wires, it wasn't that hard... just finding the place to stick all of the goodies was the tough part, and then cleaning up the wiring mess!

I have installed auto starts and alarms but most of my resources haven't been updated.

if you have any friends in the install biz, have them print our a sheet from DEI Techsoft, that is the program we used, and i am sure that there are thers. even thourh the WRX is not on there yet, you can get another suby and the wiring is the same.

another tip, if you have never installed an alarm, or remote start, don't start now. you need proper training and tools to do it correctly. i was an installer for 4.5 years, and saw many many messed up alarms and cars from faulty installs

just my $.02

I have to agree with cnstman. I had the experience and the tools, plus an electronics background from school, so I felt I had no problems installing the alarm.

There are two major factors: 1) Your time, and 2) Your experience. If you don't have either, then don't do it. Myself, I had plenty of time on my hands
