i have asked around all of my audio shops and there warranties are only good for a year and BB has a lifetime warranty. so if they fuck up the first time, then i can just take it back and have it fixed. the lifetime warranty would be the only reason why i would like to have my alarm installed at bestbuy

yeah, but honestly. If its done right (at the shop) you wont need to worry about warranty work. Or, you can take it to BB, have it (porbably) done right and if it fails, you'll be bringing it back and letting them butchers at your wiring for a 2nd time, possibly a 3rd. I would go with the shop. But then again if it were me, I would tackle it myself

I say whoever has teh best warranty, and verify it ALL with them whiel your in the store, so theres no questions asked if you have to come bac, for any reason. Even discuss with the management.

As a former MECP certified best buy installer, I can assure you that "pooleo" either (a) is proving himself an idiot again, or (b) has a bad taste in him mouth about the local best buy.

They wont let you touch a car without proving you know what you're doing. You'll be happy you took it there.
