Yeah they aren't too bad the kit ones, piss easy to put in, wire up etc. Just time consuming.. They're a bit loudish though, if that bothers ya. If i were to do it again, i'd get a kit off a commodore from the wreckers.

stratherfield use to sell really good kits for about 35. i have a couple of them and i have no problems except for one door that i have to spray a bit of wd spray inside if it gets a bit tight. mind you, my car only ever gets locked if i go to another town which is hardly ever.

well i got my alarm/central locking kit off ebay for $80. it included keyless entry and i installed it myself. Vn doors already have the holes for mounting the actuators, so you just gotta mount them, connect them to the locking mechanism, and wire it up. wiring is the hardest part though
