"Acoustic sig. lock/unlock"????????????????

Just picked up my new 328i. Pictures to come!!!

I have a question about programming the locks. The owners manual states that you can choose an "Acoustic sig. lock/unlock" along with "Flash when lock/unlock". I see on the screen display that you can set up for it to flash, but no option for "Acoustic" signal.

Am I missing something or can you not get an acoustic/audible confirmation when locking or unlocking the car?

Thanx!!!

Congratulations on the car!

As to your question, I have the acoustic signal on mine and my wifes... just checked my car its:

1. Menu
2. Settings
3. Door locks

Acoustic signal (check box)

We have 609 (professional navigation) but do not have the tech package on any of the cars.

If I remember right, yours was a sportline that was supposed to have the M sport steering wheel. Did it actually come like that?

@ Tturedraider

Do they actually make F30s that dont come with an alarm? I thought it was standard equipment...

Thanks for the responses. It sounds like that is not an option on the 328i's because there is no option to check for acoustic on the menu, just flashing lights whenever you lock/unlock.

And, yes... my Alpine White "Sport Line" came with the M Sport steering wheel. That is so cool! The standard wheel is still very nice, but THIS wheel is..., ah... EROTIC!

Congrats on the new car again! If I can make a suggestion, go to this website : http://www.rubmw.ru/vincode/eng/ (looks sketchy but seems to be fine), input your VIN number and you will get all of the options on your particular car. Kind of like the sticker, but seems to have everything. Copy that information and paste it into a word document, and print it out so that you know exactly what options you have.

The manual is VERY large, and covers every option. You will most likely come across many options the manual mentions you do not have... and having this sheet handy to refer to is very nice when attempting to figure out what you can, or can not do. I did this and it helped quite a bit when I started reading about things like Heads up displays (I dont have that as I dont have the tech package), etc.

Just an FYI re: Acoustic lock/unlock signal....When in Europe (like doing an ED), make sure you turn the signal off or (according to the lady at Welt) it will definitely attract attention as you being a foreigner.
