Keyless entry alarm

My car has keyless entry but I dont have the key pad. It does really have an alarm. Can I add an aftermarket one? Any suggestions. Also where can you buy a spare key for a bmw instead of going to the dealer.

Wow you have lots of questions, which is good. Because I am here to spread wisdom

All or most BMW's come prewire for alarm. Its not neccessary you have one,but you can buy the alarm and install it yourself.

Yes, you can add and aftermarket alarm. Just make sure the installer knows what they are doing. Tell them none of that kung fu splicing and dicing crapy. Get an aftermarket thats a PnP (Plug and Play).

To get a spare key for your car, would the dealership. No outside company can product the master key for you. They could probably get the the trunk keys, but that all about it.

They keys are speical made to work with your car EWS, thus allowing you to start your car...
