    WTF?

    Does it EVER get cold enough there to warrant remote starters?

    If you dislike them enough, a simple hose and duct tape could fix this problem for you.

    If their cars are unlocked turn on their AC to full in the winter
    and in the summer turn their heater on full. That will show'em

    to show everyone who doesn't have a remote start kit how much of a pussy they are by not hoofin it out in the cold to start it. But in their minds its, "I'm going to show everyone w/o a remote start how much my coolitude is like, so far above everyone else's, cuz I like, don't have to like, walk in the snow and crap to like, start my car."

    Mine is factory remote start and it knows when to turn on the heat and/or A/C.

    And I don't use it when it's 60 out. :think:

    Yeah, I can't understand why my neighbor gets her big honkin' SUV started 20 minutes before she leaves in the morning, especially when it's 60 degrees out. I guess she enjoys spending $$ on gas. (she doesn't have a remote starter, but she sends her kid out to start it instead)

    And.... I don't know why it bothers me, but it does. I guess the fumes & the oil/gas situation are what make me care.

    Isn't extended/needless idling illegal in some places?
