      My car did not come with remote start. I'd like to add it, but am unwilling to pay dealer prices (if they'd even offer such a service) and don't want to mess around with aftermarket stuff.

      Is it possible / realistically feasible to add after the fact? Has anyone done this that we know of? I'd imagine there are antennas and modules missing in my car, and obviously new keys would be involved. Haven't looked in to it extensively yet, figured I'd ask here first in case the response was "been tried, never done successfully" or "impossible" or something.

      I do have VIDA/DICE.

      No, not without aftermarket stuff.
