I never recieved the keyless entry remotes on my 95 325is when I bought it. I want to replace those and possibly add an alarm. Is this a difficult install or am I right in thinking that I can buy a "Plug and Play" device that just plugs into the truck? And if so where do you buy these. Would Ebay be a good place to look? Thanks!!

I've heard good things about this one, I think bavauto.com sells them. I would still caution self installation. I've never seen an alarm that looked easy to install.

OEM Alarm systems on BMWs are not advisable.....I've seen it time and time again....before you consider adding it to your vehicle....think about the consequences if your BMW doesn't work quite how you bought it.

For example:
We had a manager from Circuit City come in with her Z4. She said the passenger door wasn't locking. We traced it back to her OEM alarm system that her employees installed, incorrectly on her BMW might I add.

We had to uninstall the whole alarm system and re-program her car. It took us a couple days to get things working again because her alarm system fucked up the car. Luckily we have very smart BMW technicans that can handle situations just like that.

Next time it was in, the doors were working and no OEM alarm on her vehicle.

Think before you make a move, that's my advice.

the people either didnt know what they were doing when installing the alarm, or just an isntance of technology gone wrong. unless this starts happening to everyone then there is a call for concern, but isolated incidents tend to happen.
