Who has installed the alarm themselves?

How hard was it? I'm pretty mechanically/electronically savvy and know how to do various things around the house and on my computer (hardware) myself, but I'm no mechanic or car technician. For those who did this themselves, how difficult was it? Is it worth it to save the ~$200 installation cost? I like doing things myself anyway, and would even do it if it takes 2-3 hours just because I would enjoy it.

I searched the forum and I just want to confirm what the alarm actually includes:
- motion sensor
- audible alarm
- blinking clown nose
- anything else (like starter disable if triggered, etc.) ???

What anti-theft features come included with the car anyway? Can you start it without the key/fob?
