I'd like a remote start too.....I have no real reason to have one but I think they are cool. I used to have one that I fitted on my Mitsubishi gto and it was nice to get into a warm car on a cold morning.....but one of the previous posters is right about it using a lot of fuel. Also it could also act as a turbo timer, letting the engine tick over for a certain time after you got out and locked the door to allow the turbo to cool before automatically shutting off (something that could be useful on my WJ I guess). Also it does not do a gas engine much good ticking over to warm up....it runs richer for longer than it would do if you drove it to warm the engine up. This means the extra petrol washes the oil film from the bores causing extra wear. Nearly all modernish cars advise against idling to warm up in their hand books and say to start them and drive them straight away....just be gentle and don't rev them hard when cold etc. Having said all that I would still like to fit one as it is nice to have all the glass clear before I drive and to get into a warm car.....not that its ever really that cold in southern Britain!
