Thumbs down

Hi all B) I searched a while without any success for the information I need.

I have a 318i 1998 (e36) with what I suppose is the stock alarm system. I have a 3 buttons remote that locks the doors and enables the alarm. If I open a door without the remote... big panic :P

So... Is this system good enough... I heard of Stellar or ?? upgrade?? Is it that simple to install?? Why is this better? I will not put "jobber" alarm that will need a lot of wire cuts to make it work, that sure!

Thanks for your replies

Henri

Both are fine. If you have one, there is no need to switch to the other.

Steallar good if it works right... mine mostly works. my parking lights don't flash and windows don't go up but I have a few therorys to that one.

Stellar uses the code hoping stuff and is more expandable. Stellar uses a shock sensor vs a window break sensor so if someon hits, bumbs or cat jumps on your car it may set off the alarm depending on the sensitity level you set. Rhe sensor is 2 stage so i will warn then alarm. and you can add another sensor like a window break, ultrasonic sensor, or proximty.

the stellar allows for that change on the shock and other sensors. the BMW has an adjustment that can bemade by opening the alarm and adjusting the 2 switches in there.
