Any good recommendations or info on remote starts? I would probably want to either tie it into my current alarm system or just get an aftermarket alarm which would cost more but I want everything to work off the same remote.

Any info is appreciated! I plan to get this somewhat soon after I make up my mind. Thanks.
BMW doesn't recommend remote starters. If you do decide to put one in anyway make sure it is compatible with BMW electronics,If not your car will not go into the sleep mode there fore creating battery drain. Good luck
