it's under the rear seat on the driver side. Just lift up the rear seat cushion and you'll see the unit. It's easy to spot. I have a repair manual for sale.... I only kept this car for 9 months, bought a 97' 540i... The manual comes handy in situations like this.
I used to have a 95 525i without an alarm but it was wired for it. I bought the unit from Bavauto with the remote. I still have two chips with me to activate the remote unit.
yep! it's right there under the back seat...and it is actually there! Means all I have to do is pick up a transmitter (81 11 1 467 015) and I'll have myself an active alarm system (and remote door opener).

No squeaks or rattles... unreal!
There are two things you'll have to buy, a transmitter ($100) and the chip ($33+)!!
I bought these at Bavauto... check prices before buying...
Are you interested in the manual??? $30 including shipping and I'll throw in the chips... I have no need for any of this.. You only have to buy the transmitter...
