Bmw 328 Anyone know how to get a Beep when you lock your car?

I have had a 2007 bmw 328i and when I locked the door, it would confirm with a beep..... I just got a 2013 328xi and it wont beep.... I have been thru the owners manual, and I cant find anyplace that will confirm I locked the car with a beep. Anyone have any suggestions.. I know this is trivial, but it was a good feature.

Need to have the alarm system which is an optional item for the 328i. I believe the alarm comes standard in the 335i.

Yeah I was wondering the same thing, I swear my new F30 was beeping when I locked the doors but now it is not. I did switch key fobs and was wondering if this was prgrammed for the other key fob and I just have to re-enable it for the new key fob. I do not have the alarm by the way.

No alarm, no beep.

Yep, and you can tell from the FOB... if it has the alarm button then you get the beep (if enabled via iDrive).

I find it very interesting that 40k+++ BMW's don't come with an alarm standard....

Last I knew they were all standard on cars for the last 5-6 years depending on the make.

$40k + is not what it used to be. Not all that sure an alarm is all that effective anyway... a determined thief will get your car one way or another.

If you have an alarm, you can configure the setting in iDrive to beep, or not beep.
