Thinking about installing my own auto start

So guys i have a 2008 jeep compass and ive been doing some research on autostarts as the wife has been bothering me for a while to put one in. Ive looked at a few different sites and have found that there not like they used to be they now use a bypass thats fairly plug and play then the auto start plugs in to it. Has anyone install one of these systems them selves. Heres the one ive been looking at.
Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks Mike

Vehicle electrical systems can be pretty problematic. I see the ebay unit is around $200 delivered. You can have a specialty auto accessory shop install one for not a whole lot more, and it's guaranteed. I'd call around and see what kind of prices I'd could find before I did it myself. There's a shop in my town that does installs starting at $230.
