Thing is we first need to understand what exactly does Thatcham 1 require for an alarm to achieve that category. If it means no access into the car without the alarm going off then BMW have misrepresented in their sales.
Bearing in mind that the e90 is now an obsolete model, I would think it unlikely that Thatcham could remove/revise a rating in the light of new technology, it was Thatcham 1 when sold new, end of. It doesn't necessarily follow however, that insurance companys will continue to recognise that T1 rating when faced with the the evidence of car theft numbers
