Default Alarm installers

Looking for input or direction for an alarm install. Anyone in here recommend a particular place/person in the Seattle area? I plan on buying my own alarm and options but don't have time to do it myself. I know if I go to car toys they will charge me an arm and a leg. Best buy installers are a joke. I want a clean "hidden" install, not just run of the mill. Any input is appreciated.
Thanks

Will be a viper 5901 w/ tilt & battery backup. will not use remote start. Trying to decide if I want to use the perimeter thing or not yet.

Do you have an audio express in that area? They did a kick *** job on my FJ cruiser recently...

if you want a good install it's going to cost money, it takes time to do one right, people are spoiled by the "free" best buy installs, complete with the brain zip tied under the dash, and 100 cheap butt connectors

When I spoke to the installer I addressed making it as "stealth" as possible. He told me it's easy enough to do on a Honda and it wouldn't cost anything extra. I have more than 1 line of defense for the car, just want to make the first one worth while. It only gets stolen from my house, not when I leave it at the mall lol

wow that's expensive to you?
that is super cheap for a great install. unless its a half *** install, which is not what your talking about right?

I used to do installs and I know it takes a long time to do it right, hidden, and with a lot of extra's.

Edited...sorry decided talking about my alarm on a forum isn't a good idea. I feel like thieves could be lurking

Nice. Now you probably feel a little at ease knowing that your alarm is installed. Time to get a quick release with a few kill switch and your set
