Some of us have already been doing so for a long time ;)

I would like to add my voice and thank Scott for the SAE test results
on a 5000 turbo motor, that I received from him in yesterday's mail 
and for other help that I've received from him in the past year.
There are several people on this list that make my presence on it
worthwhile, and Scott M is definitely one of them.

That's precisely why I disconnected the OEM alarm in the
very first day of ownership of my 200 and replaced it with a
faithful Prestige APS200.
Once I was at it, I also cut into three of the most vital car systems.
Now the alarm really_messes it up well if tripped. I am afraid
that if I  forget what I've done, I won't be able to start up it myself.
