I have to agree. I did break down and bought the hood-open sensor but it was $28 and it so no big deal and it is not required. No way was I going to spend the money for the siren horn and pull the wipers/tray out to install it when the stock horn can be used and from what I have read is much louder.
Just a side note...Whenever I have filled out an application for auto insurance one of the many questions asked it "does the vehicle have alarm?" so it does save you money by having enabled.
