Mein Auto: 528it
Unfreaken Beleivable

I simply can not believe this POS car.

AFTER disconnecting the interior sensor, hood sensor and completely removing the siren assembly...a workmate comes to me yesterday and asks "Are you car's lights supposed to be flashing?.

Evidently there is still something activating the alarm system but I have no idea what it could be. I've read online from people stating their car had dirty metal contacts on the doors but when I looked at the entire door perimeter I did not see any.

Can anyone on this site list all of the sensors that make up the alarm system on a 528it?

Begin rant...I am so sick of this car and the myriad of problems associated with owning a BMW. Between the crap gas mileage, outrageous maintenance fees and parts prices what exactly is the allure to owning these cars? I just don't see it. Problem now is that this POS has depreciated 70% in 4 years so it's about worthless to trade in on a decent reliable car. Rant over... I now feel slightly better.
