Cars are cool because they are essentially big, strong robots that you can get inside and control. The world is better than you thought with this Groupon. $74 for a Remote Car Starter with Installation (Up to $149 Value) Technicians install a basic-level remote car starter with a range of up to 800 feet (a $149 value). Most cars also require a bypass to keep the remote starter from setting off car alarms or other security features. A vehicle that requires a special bypass may incur up to $100 in additional fees.
