a couple of weeks ago, I bought a 97 328iS. There are stickers on both of the front seat windows that indicates that a alarm is present. When I bought hte car, it didn't come with a remote to arm the alarm. How do I find out if the car really does have an alarm, and where would I go to get a replacement remote.

I shopped around Bavauto.com last night, and they seemed to have several different models. Does any one have any suggestions as to which model is better? Would an aftermarket alarm designed for an e36 be better than a stock BMW alarm?

yes. The stellar alarm uses the same factory hookups and has better features, plus its cheaper.

Has any one in here used the stellar alarms before? I was glad to see that they were cheaper and had more features than the stock BMW. But I was worried that the cheaper alarm might not be as high of quality. I don't want to spen $350 on an alarm that stops working after a year or two.

Before you go buying an alarm system...check behind your glove box (have to take it out, there's a thread on this) to see if you still have the main "brain" for your alarm system. If so, you'll only need to buy a key fob/remote for the alarm. I think for your model year, you can pick one up from e-bay for around $30.

Don't have the stellar alarm, but I do have the keyless entry. My only problem is a finicky remote. I think it needs a new battery.
