What kind of car are you trying to protect?
Have you owned any aftermarket alarms before?
Are you familiar with today's security technology?
Clifford G4 is excellent IMO. Clifford Matrix at Best Buy is repackaged Viper which is not as good IMO.

I sell the Clifford Intelliguard line. It is the same as the Concept line (kinda like chevy and GMC trucks: Same, but different.)
The IG7000 is where I would start. Digital dual zone impact sensor adjusted from the remote, starter kill, ignition kill, Anti-carjack(blackjax), door protection, optional hood and trunk protection, keyless entry, trunk release, flashing parking lights, 1 waterproof remote, 1 programming remote, 15 sound programmable siren, extended range antenna, plain view coded valet switch, MANY laptop programmable options.
The IG8000 is the same but it has a digital dual zone proximity sensor instead of impact. Jose has the IG8000. Being able to set the prox accurately from the remote is awesome.
Tons of options are available:
Safe remote start even on manual trans
Windows up/down from remote and 1 touch up/down from switch
Back up battery siren
Wireless fuel kill-disables fuel pump and is not wired to alarm
Digital tilt/motion sensor to detect jacking/towing
Waterproof hood pin
Horn honk
Auto headlight control
etc
Come by for a complete demo and I'll hook you up.

I've had Clifford alarms on both this car and my previous car and I've been totally happy with it. I've previously had Crime Stopped and Code Alarm and I feel the Clifford beats them hands down.

But to change the subject, no matter what brand of alarm you get, make sure you get someone you can trust to install the alarm. My last car (like I said) had a Clifford alarm but (IMO) a bad install. I don't even want to say the name of the shop but I went to them because there were a big name here in Dallas and the the alarm and install was pretty expensive. I figured you got what you paid for... WRONG!

Some punks broke into my car at a club one night and stole my radio and when they yanked it out they found out where the shop I trusted to do the install mounted the alarm... under the radio. They yanked the alarm and had full access to my car and could hot wire it because the shop I went to felt it would be more convenient to wire my alarm closed loop (maybe open?) so that if I had to I could pull the fuse and start my car in case the alarm was giving me problems.

EW and the guys at Autosound Bedford went the extra mile on installing my alarm. They've got it mounted in a secure location, they have it wired so that even if the pulled the fuse the car still won't start, and they added some other touches that I won't discuss here. Whoever you get to install the alarm I suggest don't make my last mistake and not be involved in the intall. Ask questions and don't let them do the work until you are satisified you've had those questions answered.
