    Looking forward to hear how it goes. Local installer here in MA told that he could not install Viper to my 15' model since Viper does not have the 'bypass module'??? for my 15' Evoque. Instead, he quoted me for $1000 to install a system from Land Rover plus I would have to sacrifice one key to complete the installation. I skipped it.

    Well that's $100 dollars cheaper them my dealer. Plus I am also buying a 3rd key that will be hidden in the car so this really hurts but it sure will be nice on the negative temp days.

    How much was the extra key?

    Picked up my Evoque at the dealer last night and so far I am very happy with the remote start.

    Here is what it looks like and the instructions

    I can tell you from personal experience that there is an error in the "Folding Side View Mirror" section of your instructions, at least for a 2013 model. I had access to an Evoque Owners Manual while waiting for my Evoque to be built and delivered. I read the section of the owners manual about having the dealer disable the folding mirror option. Since I keep my vehicles a long time, I had this feature disabled, to save wear and tear on the mirror motors. The manual lead me to believe that only the "locking" portion of the folding mirrors would be disabled, and I could still use the mirror buttons to fold the mirrors. WRONG! It is an all or nothing feature. At my first service, I had the option for the folding mirrors reactivated.

    Quick Update on the remote start set up.

    Right now the dealer is trying to figure out the lack of range as it's good for about 30 feet at best which is pretty much useless. If I put the remote on my check I get about 50 feet and that's a pain in the ass as it's hard to tell when the light flashes on the remote.

    A couple possibilities is the heated windshield is causing the problem as the antenna is on the passenger side. Faulty antenna which it might be as even if I try to start it with the rear end facing me it still has crappy range. Hopefully they will figure it out in the next couple days and I promise I will keep you guys posted.
