If you have the BMW alarm option you have a interior motion sensor, a tilt sensor and switches on all doors etc. . There may be more but that is all I am aware of, I don't have it but I am going to get it soon.

The DWA systems on BMW's make your vehicle ALMOST impossible to steal....unfortunatly there are professionals out there that if they want your car, there is no security system they can't get around. But I think you can sleep well at night knowing that your car will be safe and sound. After all BMW pretty much sets the standards for anti-theft development in Europe.

Could you please explain the DWA system I was kind of confused when i picked up my 325 (2004) at the dealer and when I asked about the security system was told that there was not one on the vehicle, I figured for all the bucks I spent that there would be a decent system in the car thanks for the feedback hope this isnt a dumb question ?

The security system is not standard it is an option. You can add it after you purchase the car, the parts are around $250 and are easy to install yourself. You then have to have it activated at the dealer.

As part of all the money you spent, you get a computer chip coded key that can only be used in your vehicle and is required to operate the car. As long as you keep your spare keys out of the car, there is no chance of anyone but a high-tech expert car jacker to drive off with your car.

True I should have been more specific (though it sounded like the DWA system was already installed on your car) This is a dealer added option (DWA is BMW's Drive Away Protection or alarm system) that is basically from the factory ready...all the Center has to do is add modules and ZCS code to activate the system....EWS is the other system mentioned...you do have a key with a chip. certain modules (VIN specific) have to be essentually aligned (or your vehicle will not start) and the ISN signal from the key has to be recognized by both modules...this makes it EXTREMELY difficult to steal a new BMW...if you have any other questions I would be happy to explain further...feel free to contact me any time
