Dang, you practically made all the mods that I plan to make with my is300! Can I ask you about the Compustar alarm? I was going to get one but I heard a new one is coming out in July. I dont know if this is true or not. However, does the compustar you have work really well? Did you add other modules to it like truck protect, hood protect etc? How much did you pay for installation? Someone told me around 200-300 for installation. Where did you go to get it done? As for your headlights, are those blue bulbs for your daytime lights? My last question pertains to your monitor. Is that a dvd/lcd screen? it looks more like a camera screen or something. Dont tell me you have a camera in your car?!?! Sorry for all the questions.

The compustar is in 1 word "AWESOME"!!!! I am a dealer of Compustar products and I am not aware of a replacement for the top dog 2000AS. The are bringing new 1 way models out. These are to compete with all other alarms and remote starts out there. They are more consumer friendly in terms of priceing. The system is complete with remote start, door, trunk, and hood protection, dual stage shock sensor, keyless entry, remote trunk release, window roll up modules, aux out to control strobe flashers, horn honk, starter kill, ign 1 kill, and fuel pump kill. I also put up the kinda useless VPS(vehicle paging system sensor. I used a blue super bright L.E.D. for the main system that works in conjunction with the factory L.E.D. I also replaced the red led in the VPS sensor with a blue one. I havent figured out what the install would cost a consumer, but I can say that I get 550 for the 2000AS installed with the basic(Starter kill, p-lights, door and hood protection with remote start, and shoch/impact sensor)options. That is 100 off suggested retail. Extra's would be as follows:
Trunk pin 15
d-locks 50 This car is different than most
trunk release 35 plus 5 for relay

These are just averages for you to go by. If you go with the 2WAS you can save 50 clams by losing the back light display, couple extra channels, multi color remote,and VPS.

The blue that you see in my headlight assembly is a Streetglow replacement Xenon bulb for the high beam/day time running light. While the car is started the are on like normal white bulbs, but the are blue in color while off. I think it looks as slick as hell.
The monitor is for TV viewing, watching DVD's and for the rear vision camera mounted on the rear of the vehicle.(See pic on my page located at my signature) I am toying with addind a front camera along with an interior camera for fun that will work off a switching unit.

I forgot to mention that the factory system arms and disarms with the Compustar. So its like having the factory system backed up by a much better system.
