As I mentioned earlier, my software was just updated in March and my alarm chirps. Shame if it's only a US thing.

Madman, what were you doing wrong?. You cant set the chirp on European Cars for locking/unlocking. That is a US spec feature only.

Must have something to do with the noise abatement laws.

I was pressing the lock button twice. I was under the impression that once was lock and twice was set alarm. I think i got confused....its been a bad month

Would be nice if it chirped though as i'm forever checking to see if it locked or not if i miss the light blinking.

No chirp with flash: I think it is another stupid rule in order to meet thatcham cat. 1.

Years ago my old E36 would automatically put up the windows and close the sunroof when i locked it.
When I asked why this did not work in my E46, I was told that to meet thatcham cat. 1 the user had to remain beside the car with the button held down and actually witness the closing of windows/sunroof.

What an annoying pile of bo11&x

That would be your mistake. One press only is required, pressing again will disable the interior movement sensors.

Is there any way of locking the car without setting the alarm?

Use the key, Floyd.

You haven't been 'partying' with Carlos this week-end, have you?

Those late nights / early mornings with Carl would warp your mind, I imagine, Floyd!
