Legally shops aren't suppose to install them. Your suppose to do it yourself.

Maybe forget about that, and do key less entry?

Its going to be hard to wire remote start your self, unless your power mechanics teacher at school knows how to do it.

There are specialist workshops in England that fit them, in fact a friend of mine owns & runs one, I know that's of no use to you though, what's the age & make of the car?

I would say that around $200-$220 would be a fair price to pay for the remote start/keyless entry and install. There is a guy here that does it and thats about what he charges.

Thats cool, it's always nice to have friends.

If you are going to do it, you should get a keyless entry and remote start in one, because if you only do one, and later decide you want to do the other, then it's a huge pain to unwire everything and wire it up again. This is the advice of the guy I know that does it.
