Hey...I have a E36 M3, and was planing on getting an aftermarket alarm. I wanted to get the Clifford 2-Way one, with the remote, and auto-window roll up. I dont know if i should get it, because my BMW mechanic told me that SOMETIMES they cause electrical problems in BMW's. Does anyone have an aftermarket alarm....that has/has not had n e problems. Thanks...

I have sold and installed 100's/1,000's of alarms, remote starts, keyless entries on numerous cars ranging from our beloved BMWs, Lexus', Corvettes, Pickups, Armored Vehicles, Motorcycles, 18 Wheelers, Dump trucks, Tractors, and about anything else that rolls down the highway.

In my E34, I have Astrostart's 3106, which consists of a keyless entry system, remote start and full featured alarm system.

If it is installed correctly you will not have any problems. Problems arise when an installer doesn't know how to do the installation, or cheaply built equipment. The car doesn't know what is being installed into it, nor does the equipment know what car it is being installed into. I used to sell Clifford and it used to be a good quality product. I haven't sold it in over 8 years so I can't honestly tell you if its good or not.

Do some research on the product you want, make sure it is installed by a shop that backs its work.

Remote starts simulate the act of turning you key forward, the electrical connections are the same as what your key cylinder does. Saying the remote start caused you battery to go dead is the same as saying turning the key on every morning to start the car caused the battery to go dead.

Keyless entries are the same as pressing the lock/unlock button on your factory remote and/or the lock button on your door panel.

Alarms monitor the inputs from a light being turned on or a sensor that is wired directly to the alarm itself.

All of these things are offered by the factory and have been used for years and the factory hasn't had any problems (they usually limit features that would false alarms in different enviroments).

Hopefully this helps, any other questions feel free to ask away, I'll help if I can....

I have a matrix (clifford) and I really like it, the only problem is that you only get one remote! For the $$$ I was pissed! But I'll get an extra one one of this days.
