will be receiving my 330ci black sap/black leather performance pack bmw soon. bmw comes prewired for car alarm but no alarm. dealership wants to charge $500.00+ for install. should i pass? if so, can anyone recommend good car alarm? initially windows were not going to be tinted ($200.00), but salesperson said he would hook up the tint at no cost. should i pass on the dealership tint and search for my own or say ok to bmw?

i asked the same question about the alarm a while ago.

the answer i got was that bmw's are hard to steal so you don't need an alarm.

but a free tint sounds good to me

"BMWs are hard to steal so you don't need an alarm"

Surely BMWs are desirable, therefore likely to get stolen? However 'hard' car makers might think their cars are to steal, they are wrong. Any (most) unprotected cars can be taken in under 2 minutes.

Save the money and fit an aftermarket alarm. You'll get something much better.

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>
