I see a red flashing light on my radio. and my rear view has a red globe (light) under it, however i dont think that one is flashing.
The flashing light on the radio and the clown nose are both standard; i.e. even on cars with no alarm. Usually if the car chirps when you lock/unlocks, it indicates you have an alarm. There are probably ways to turn the chirping off, and if you bought the car used, it may be disabled. If you Google around, people have described ways to activate the alarm -- doing things like sitting in the car and locking it with the key, and then trying to open the door from inside, which would set the alarm off. In cars without an alarm, this would result in nothing. In cars with the alarm it would result in the clown nose blinking and the siren.

Anyway, you're on your own. Since your car is an E60, you can post to that forum and ask the question...people there might be able to respond. This is a long thread on the recall (and that too for E46 sedan only), so most people aren't even bothering to read it.
