I purchaed a BMW 330 ci about a month ago, and every time I press the central locking on the keyfob to unlock the car, it makes a kind of electric noise which seems to be coming from the alarm!! I took the car back to BMW and they said they had sorted the problem, which they had for a while but recently it has started again.
It is very anoying as when you come to the car and press the unlock button, people always say "whats that noise" it drives me mad.
You haven't mentioned it, but if your car has an SMG transmission, it will make a noise, every time you unlock the car or open a door/trunk, for about 10 seconds or less. If you have man or auto, ya got me!
