i'm about to purchase one of the two alarms and have compared the differences between the two. the AG5 does seem to have a bit more options but other than that they seem to be identical. don't need remote start or a turbo timer option...a real turbo timer is in place of that. i'd like to get some input from some of you guys that actually "OWN" one of these alarms with the good and bad aspects of it.

Those are relatively new alarms, generation 5. It just came out recently so I doubt many people have it yet. I have the generation 4 but there have been big changes supposedly to the G5 systems. I'd go with the 850 and get the wireless immobilizer and add some options I need.

Good choice going with Clifford, I have the AG 3 in my car and there is nothing better. The new AG5 is supposed to be just off the hook. I think it is better than the 850 and i think you will be extremely impressed with the AG5.

Are you going to be installing it your self?
I have the AG4 and I love it, it does just about everything possible and with the user software it is very easy to make changes or adjustments. Make sure you get the immobilizer.
If you don't need the remote start you might want to go with the 850, I used the AG4 cause I figured with a turbo timer the car will never be left in gear any way.
I hear the AG5 is great, and they got rid of some of the bullshit.
I thought you were selling your car?

it was for sale, but i couldn't let it go. at least not just yet:D

thanks for all the info. ended up purchasing a brand new 850. if any of you guys need any Clifford alarms...i can get the AG5, Matrix 3.5, and Intelliguard 850 for a damn good price.

Sorry for the ignorance, but who makes AG5?

I have an AG4 in my supra, and a IG6000 in my civic. Pretty similar to todays fifth gen AG5 and Concept 450. As far as the AG5, I would definately go with that if I was in the market again. That is, if you would like remote start.. If not IG850 + wireless immobilizer.

Being that I'm in WA state, I'm kinda partial to remote start since most of the time its rainy and cold.. Kinda nice to hit a button, wait 7-10 minutes and get into a nice toasty car :) Besides that, you are getting one of the best quality alarms, very solid.

As far as the bad things... I actually can't think of anything.. Their lifetime warranty is awesome. Its not like some of these other manufacturers that claim to have a lifetime warranty and only cover the brain. Clifford will cover the whole product from defects.

I was wondering the same thing! Why do you think it was a waste of $$$ I know what everyone says about remote start with a 6 speed, but the turbo timer really takes care of me forgeting to leave it in gear like: michaelrc51 said... Just curiouse...
