Advice: Best Car Present

Hey Everybody,
My bf's birthday is coming up & he has a mercedes benz 1999 E430 -- it is a great car in perfect condition and he loves it and I want to buy him a present for it. I was thinking of buying a remote keyless entry/car starter thing and getting it hooked up as I have one on my car and I use it all the time. What do you guys think? He already has xenon headlights and a pioneer dvd/map thing and he got it lowered. He is VERY picky about his car so this present has to be AWESOME -- like something he is guaranteed to love. Any advice will be very much appeciated!
xoxo,
Desire

gee...I wish I had a girlfriend like this...Thats probably good, but make sure that if you are going to get one that it isn't a low quality one (they usually suck and have lots of false alarms). Door locks will cost you more if central door locks are not already installed though

Don't remind me. I actually had a girlfriend like this (bought me $200 Jordan's for my 16th birthday). I was a dumb foolish arrogant piece of turd and I wish I would have known back then what I know now.

I highly recommend Compustar -

http://www.compustar.org/security_with_remote_start.htm

Depending on who you go through the price can range from 360$ installed to 650$ installed for the top of the line model, the 2WSS-AS, shop around a bit. (Prices are Canadian by the way..)

Well I got mine installed at Best Buy, I have had no problems with it and they were pretty good about it. Best alarms are probably the two-way ones, they at least tell you when the car alarm goes off when you are in range but can't hear it(i.e. in a store)
