Whats the criime rate in your area? do you hear horrific stories about cars being stolen? Do your door locks work?

id say lift but if your that concern then get the alarm

Neither. Nobody cares about your car alarm going off unless it becomes annoying. Then they call the cops on you. Don't bother lifting it if money is that tight. We don't say "Just Empty Every Pocket" for our health.

We say it for our amusement!!! Mr. Green





I'd say research your area's crime rate first. Then decide.

well i havnt heard much about cars being stolen, i live in san diego california the only reason why i want to get an alarm is cause my dads car got stolen last year from our parking lot luckily the police found it (LOJACK) lol but thats prob the only reason why i would bother getting one, and i prob will have enough for a lift but not enough for both so i think i might just go for the lift kit first then alarm and so on

If money is tight, go for the alarm.

Alarms dont usually lead to more mods. Alarms wont cause odd vibes or handling issues that can only be corrected with more money for more parts, increasing the cost as you go.
