Yes, just a different approach by automakers.

Nissan have always liked to keep things simple, or in the user's hands.

Good to hear that even with a G37 (Intelli key?) you can still change from beep to lights whenever you want.

I was beginning to think that once a key was 1-piece with a transponder, as opposed to a separate fob, things like that were out of the user's hands.

Keep you ears out for anyone in the neighborhood who can come by with their laptop and BMW s/w to do it for $40 or so.

AFTERTHOUGHT: factory alarm is quite a rare option on the X3 and is only way to have a beep on arming/disarming. Unless you have an aftermarket alarm,
in which case silencing the beep should be possible as a DIY if you know what brand it is.
