e34-OBC/immobilizer/aftermarket keyless entry

hey,
I have a 1989 525i and I was wondering if there was a immobilizer inside the key. I know about the OBC immobilizer( I have the OBC not the clock) and was wondering if that would interfere with an aftermarket keyless entry. I don't have to enter the code everytime I start the car.

so in short
I want to buy a non-oem keyless entry/ alarm unit and was wondering if the obc immobilizer (even though it is not active, I never use it) would have to be bypassed or something like that in order for my new keyless entry unit to function properly

Nope the 5-series didnt have them until after the E34 body. I've installed two differetn remote start/keyless/alarm systems in mine and no extra module to buy, and no troubles. They are fairly simple to install on. Hope that helps...

sp0rky is an unknown quantity at this point
The immobiliser will still work even when you install an aftermarket alarm / keyless entry system.

It's a completely seperate system.
You don't have to bypass it or anything and they will both exist together happily.

Thanks again
Reason I asked is because I just purchased this car... It's in rough shape some of the underbody is rusted out, rotors and pads need to be replaced, and it has a blown head gasket. Ahh well, shes going to be down until april or may. I learned my lesson either pay for a BMW up front or pay for it at the garage NO worries though Im not giving upon her that easy
