question for all - in my 94 325 vert, there is no factory plug saying "prewired for alarm" or something like that as i have seen in the left hand side of the trunk in other E36s, verts and sedans alike. does that mean i just have to wire something up brand new or is there still a possibility that plug-n-play OEM type systems like these would work?
I would venture to guess that your car is not pre-wired for an alarm. Unless BMW chose to add the alarm port in a different location for the cabs, you would be best served to go for an aftermarket alarm like Clifford, Ungo, or Avital.
My earlier reply was for "igothepowers". He has a cab.
Leibniz, if your car is so equiped, in the trunk on the driver's side, you will notice a flap labeled "pre-wired for alarm" on it. This is your PNP source. I have yet to have any issues with products purchased from bavauto and I would imagine this is no exception....
the factory port is behind the glove compartment inside the can. You have to remove it, and then you will see an unused port about 8-12 inches back. If you have large hands like me, it's a bitch to fit in place.

prez - does that mean the cab IS pre-wired, its just a pain in the arse to get to?
