I purchased an OEM alarm off e-bay that came out of a 97 Z3, installed to the port of my 00 roadster and got nothing... There is no connection for the horn under the hood so that was a waste but how can I check to see if the alarm unit is shot or if I don't have a paired remote? There is no flashing on the led. I'm not so much concerned about the horn/siren more looking for the keyless entry.

with the unit plugged in and paired correctly, you should be able to lock and unlock the car without the horn.

Also, where did you look for the horn connection under the hood? It's under the fuse box on the driver's side, pretty well hidden. At least it was on my 1998. I just recently installed one on mine, but I don't have the horn installed because the original Z3 kits came with extension harnesses.

Also, what is the part number and FCC ID for the key and control unit? Just to make sure you have a matching set. I pieced mine together from many parts and actually have a bunch of spare parts.
