New toys for E46

Well, I need to make an order from Pacific, and want to ensure I have all the goodies...

So far, I have the garage door opener, the CD changer and the alarm. Any other goodies? We don't smoke and I would like something to get rid of ashtrays, etc like there is in the E39.

So, I'm gathering that it is indeed possible to have the lights blink or siren honk without the alarm installed. However, is it possible without the Car/Key Memory option?
Yes it is, but TINFL (there is no free lunch). What you are doing is telling the car's computer that an alarm is installed. This will generate many fault codes because the car is looking for something that isn't there (the alarm). All the extra fault codes may make it difficult for your dealer to determine what's wrong with your car if they need to.

Basically what I'm saying is that I want some kind of sound and lights to let me know when I unlock or lock the doors, but my car doesn't have power seats, and therefore no Car/Key Memory.
Your car does haev car/key memory. It just doesn't affect the seat position. Car/key memory does not provide sound/light when the car is (un)locked. It controls things like weather DRLs are on or how the climate control is set (IIRC) or weather just the driver's door opens on the first push of the unlock button on the remote or they all do.
