Is it possible to install a remote starter in a 1998 C230?

I don't know if it is possible, but I would like to have a remote car starter installed in my dad's C230. It has the infared key or whatever you call it. Is it possible? I understand that it has a very sophisticated security system. Also how much is one of those keys?

TIA,
Steve

Blackmercedes,
do you mean they can't be installed or is it advisable not to install it in that particular model ?

Read the post. You CANNOT install a remote start in a Smart Key equipped Mercedes. No. Won't work. Can't be done. The 1998 C230 has the SmartKey, so you cannot install one.

The keys retail for about $250CDN a pop.
