Smile Alarm

I have noticed by cruising the BMW lots looking at options and colors that the Alarm system does not seem to be an often ordered item. What are the pluses and minuses of the Alarm option. Thanks. Also, it seems as though some of the colors are hard to view in person as white, black, red and mineral gray seem to be very popular. I am leaning toward the Lux line and am undecided as to the color. Any ideas as to where some of the colors have a better chance of being viewed. I will not order something w/o seeing it in person. Thx again. Gregg

I had initial questions as well as to what the factory alarm system option does. When I asked the dealer, they said it basically just beeps and makes noises. Nothing special. In fact, I had originally added it and he actually convinced me not to get it.

If you have comfort access then the alarm confirms you have the car locked by chirping. My 06 325 folds the mirrors if you hold the ridges on the handle but that convenience disappeared in 07.

A 6 without comfort access? That's discomforting.

It helps you find the car in a large parking lot because it beeps.
without it BMW's are silent
