Default aftermarket keyless entry

So after discovering my 97 SE does not have keyless entry, i'm exploring aftermarket. Best Buy will install a Viper keyless entry in my car for $130 installed, plus 35 if I want the remote trunk pop. Is this a good deal, i mean, are these alarms hard to install on a bonneville? For that price, I could buy one with remote start as well off ebay if I could install myself. Do they involve tearing apart the dash or anything? I'm ok with splicing wires and what not, but don't really wanna tear the dash out of the car to do it. I've setup an appointment to have it installed a week from today, so have until then to change my mind. Let me know, and what a good inexpensive setup would run me. Thanks!!

That doesn't seem like a bad price to me. Most shops around me advertise keyless starting at $99 and up. So that is usually for a cheap brand keyless.

I don't think you have to tear the dash way apart, but I think there are a LOT of wires that have to be spliced.
