Alarm question

2118 Views 21 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  UltimatePeter

I have a 2002 330CI and am looking to buy an alarm. So I have a few questions.

1. Does anyone know where I can find a good price for part #65739416520?

I have seen posts on here from a few years ago quoting prices around $200 but I cannot find it new for less than around $300.00 right now.

2. Is this alarm (factory oem kit) the one I should be getting or is there a better option?

3. Finally, my keys have buttons on them that unlock and lock the car. Does that mean that even without the alarm, the car cannot be started? If not, does the oem factory alarm include that feature?

To me, that is the most important theft deterrent as I have been told it makes your vehicle nearly unstealable unless they tow it.

I also have a e46 330ci (2001) and have the clown nose but no alarm. I'm not so much interested in the "noise maker" portion of the alarm but more interested in a beep and parking lights flash when I lock and unlock my doors. Do I need to find a used factory alarm and have a BMW tech install it? What all is needed?

Let me know please.

Any help on how to achieve this would be appreciated.

Thanks :)
I'm pretty sure you can have your car coded to do this without the alarm being present. You can pay a ridiculous fee at the dealer to do it, or find someone with PA soft or other program that can do coding and it's a matter of checking a few check boxes on the program then hitting a button to write the change to your car.
