BMW Alarm

I'm trying to find a good alarm system for my BMW. Unitedautosecurity.com has 8 different selections for my car-by far the largest number of selections I've seen. Has anyone had any experience with them?

If you go aftermarket, Viper (or about anything DEI) has about the best quality. Whats your car/year BTW?

I have a 2001 MZ3. I'd rather spend the extra $400 for a performance chip. The factory also doesn't have flip keys or the comfort lock via remote. Do you know if DEI has it?

The comfort lock is supposed roll-up the windows and sunroof.

If your car does this and the alarm has that built-in/plug in feature (meaning no additional wiring) thats not too bad. You'll pay that for a good one at a retail store, but that'll probably be installed. Not too bad pricing though. Kinda neat feature if you ask me, knowing that if your alarm is set, your windows are rolled up.

I agree. Do you think I should try this company?

If its a TRUE plug and play, you wont find an aftermarket one for that price. You'll have to make your own decision on that comapny. I'm not gonna let you come hunt ME down if the reliability isnt there on that alarm .

dei (viper specifically) makes good stuff, audiovox/prestige is up there as well
in the 2 years i worked on aftermarket installs of alarms and thelike we had a zero failure rate with audiovox alarms.

lots of features in the 996a/997a alarms too. i have a 997a (9800 pro) alarm on every vehicle i own. great feature rich system, including up to 7 programmable channels (great for adding extra, remote controlled gadgets)

otherwise viper has good stuff, hornet are alright.. dei in general are alright but stick ith viper, ive had some failures with other dei branded items, specifically cliffords have been problematic.

if you have any questions or want help installing it, i have lots of resources and wiring diagrams for all bmws and how to wire to bypass EWS/ii, and all that sorta thing, plus how to double lock locks, and some other neat tricks you can do with bmws.
