I am not entirely sure that is why i did not say but I THINK it was from March 2009 - MY 2010.
BMW stopped pre-wiring 3ers with March '09 production. February 2009 was the last month that 3ers were pre-wired.Thanks, more I think about it I think my car is a very early 2009 build simply because the inspection sticker is dated from January of 2009. I will have to ask the dealer whenever I make it there next.
I don't think this is true. I would say that about 75% of the posters on this board have ht alarm, and everybody I know how owns an E9x (and I know quite a few) opted for the alarm. It is a common dealer installed option.BMW stopped pre-wiring 3ers with March '09 production. February 2009 was the last month that 3ers were pre-wired.
Prior to this change they had always pre-wired (at least E46's & E9x's) 3ers for the alarm. However, almost no one ever installed the alarm (or had it installed), so it really was a money waster for BMW. Now the alarm is a factory option and if it isn't ordered from the factory it cannot be installed later. Of all BMW's recent cost cutting moves I think this one was the wisest.
