Is there a way to disable the sound when arming and locking my car? 2 Beeps to lock, 1 Beep to unlock.
That is an option that can be reprogrammed at the dealer. My friend had it done on his 5 series.
Bugger it!!! I just came back to say that!! I found the answer on bimmer.com or sumthin like that - Apparently the dealers can program quite a few parameters of your alarm - lights flash, siren beeps, indicators flash etc. Which is a bit of a cheek really cos here in the UK the flashing of lights on alarm activation was an optional extra - seems for your money all they had to do was enable this option.
So yes it seems it can be done after all - but at what cost???
