Unless the updated system is radically different from the previous one, then he is talking out of his ......
This system doesn't touch the cars control systems, and just takes an amplified speaker feed. Even the power doesn't touch the main circuits, tapping directly into the battery and having an auto power off (when it detects no signal, hence the 3 second delay on power up).
Buy the kit only and get an independent to fit (or another Stealer)
