I's mentioned under Special Notes. Here's the exact text, "SPECIAL NOTES: Our remote start kits are ONLY compatible with automatic transmission vehicles. To prevent theft, the remote starter will shut down the vehicle when a door is opened. Not compatible on American models with Enform system."
definitely give them a call . Also ask for a discount . They have me a 15% discount for my wife's 300h

Default Factory remote start?

Does Lexus offer a factory remote start rather than the enform? I don't want to sub for a service when I can just use the remote start on my key fob. When I asked a dealer about it they said they only offer enform and I can get a remote start from another company but they don't recommend it.

Better off getting an aftermarket remote start like iDatalink system. 100X better than anything Lexus offers on that stupid Enform system which you not only pay for monthly sub but works half the time. Get a http://www.idatalink.com/ which enables you to use the OEM key fob to start the car but also depending on what model you get can also do a 2 way communications system and/or keyfob with LCD screen too.

Yes Lexus offer their own Remote Starter, that would be my 1st choice especially if your car is still under warranty, it would be still my 1st choice even out of warranty.
Aftermarket ones are a crap shoot and so much depends on the installation, not only for how the unit will work, but also for how it may affect other mechanical/electronic parts as well.

I love Enform remote. Gives you information about your car, alerts you via app and email if you left a window or door open, etc, and other data like the odometer, fuel level, etc. Plus I can remotely start the car, lock/unlock doors, etc. Viper and CompuStar can't hold a light to Enform remote. The service is totally worth it for me at $13/month ($160/yr).
