Hello everyone, I just purchased a 1999 328i in mint condition inside & out, I loved the car, I was wondering if the Stellar Alarm which has features the factory BMW Alarm does not, will work with the BMW Key remote, or do I have to use the remote that comes with the Stellar Alarm, I know if I go with the factory BMW alarm I have to get it programmed by the dealer.


BMW Plug In Alarm W/ SMT, Remote Windows, Top

Price: $375.00

Stellar BMWRTXC

p.s. Where is the Oil Filter ?

Thanks Everyone

the OEM alarm has windows/sunroof down/up, tilt sensor, motion sensor. You can also get a shock sensor that works with the OEM alarm for $20bucks. The OEM alarm is $225 at circlebmw.com and installation you can do yourself. *Just a suggestion

-i do not know where the oil filter is.

i know for the 98 328's the oil filter was at the front of the engine bay, and slightly to the right. i dont know for sure but i think its in the same spot.

stellar is a sensored alarm, so if someone touches the car or tries to break in the alarm goes off, as opposed to the oem witch only alarms if the door is opened. or the car tries to start,

Actually I just purchased and installed the OEM Factory alarm last week. There's a Tilt sensor that goes off when the car is jacked up, there's an ultrasonic sensor which goes off if someone whacks the car really hard, breaks the glass, or If all the windows are down and the alarm is armed it will go off if someone tries to put their hand through the window. On another note, all the windows and moonroof roll down with the push of a button and they all close when you insert the key into the keyhole and turn counter clockwise (this is after we were screwing around with the dis, not a result of getting the alarm).

Benefits of OEM alarm:

-Nice expensive sounding chirp
-Open all your windows with the touch of a button (after programming)
-Ultrasonic motion sensor (If that's what you call it, when the windows are rolled down, even someone passing your car will set off the alarm)
-Tilt sensor (Located on top of battery) Goes nuts when the car is jacked up
-Takes 45 minutes to 1 hour to install
-All doors locked from inside and outside (ie. you can lock someone in the car and arm the alarm and the only way to get out is if you break the windows lol)
-Completely Plug and play

Cost me around $2xx + $50.00 activation @ an independent bimmer place that had the modic/dis (also had all key memory and car memory options installed + had the DIS check for any problems)

and another thing, i believe the steller alarms require a separate remote for the alarm vs the OEM alarm uses your key.
