Does anyone have an experience with BMW alarm in 330Ci converible? Today dealer installed (at least told that installed alarm kit and activate by reprograming OBC. According to dealer there is no volumetric and shock sensor for converible, tilt sensor only. But I liitle bit curious: I tried to swing my car very hard but armed alarm was not tripped. Hmm, I can easy remove the wheel with much less disturbance. Either tilt sensor doesn't work or...?

you should invest an aftermarket shock sensor (about $20). this will trip the alarm if maybe a bicycle hit your car, or if you shake the car. the tilt sensor trips when you jack the car about 5inches +

woobiee, thanks for explanation... 5" is a lot.
When you mentioned "aftermarket shock sensor" don't you have anything particular model in mind? It it connector-compatible or I should make some kludge with wiring? thx!

look for a DEI Shock Sensor 504M. ive seen them as low as $20 each.

installation is very simple. but i think its not a connector-compatible, prob some wiring, but very very simple
