The original module is the black colour box with embossed STEEL MATE.Observe the shape.Imitations module is black but shape is different.Dealers try to sell you these imitations which give you trouble afterwards and customers blames the company.I am using this system since 2000 in my Daewoo Racer and have no problem.I have never visited the installer for trouble shooting till now.
This is the shape of the remote which was shipped to Pakistan till 1 year back.Other models in market are imitations even though you can find their remote design on STEEL MATE site but wont find every ascessory same.
Dealers recommend other brands but their range and quality is very low(Practical experience).
