Without modern electronics, mankind would have limited access to Bach's symphonies, Hitchcock's films, and Bob Saget's dog and baby voiceovers. Stock up on entertaining appliances with today's Groupon: for $129, you get an Avital remote car starter and installation at Distinct Auto Care (a $299 value). This deal is not valid on BMWs, Mercedes, Land Rovers, and Jaguars. Additional fees may apply to bypass codes.
Distinct Auto Care's technicians enable drivers to fire up their engines from the warm indoors via Avital remote starter systems. During the three-hour installation service, the apparatus experts equip cars with the Avital 4113, a remote starter that spurs engines to action from up to 1,500 feet away, controls the car locks, and has a limited lifetime warranty against attaining sentience. Two tiny one-button keypads give drivers the wizardry needed to elude cold climates by activating their car engines from the indoors, letting a few minutes pass, and then slinking into a toasty, ready-to-ride car. Customers can upgrade to units with keyless entry, trunk release, smartphone compatibility, or a security alarm.
