Then I could catch up to them and make them pay. Video record the whole incident.

Are there add-ons to a BMW alarm to do any of the alarm actions I mentioned (phone, email, IM, video)? I have not really looked into the BMW alarm (or others for that matter). For all I know about this subject, the BMW alarm already does some of these things.

Considering that I dropped my car in at 10 AMm...and they said they wouldn't be able to get it back to me untill tommorrow...but instead called me at around 4ish...said it was done...is a great job. ALSO, that there were HELLLLLLLA cars in service today.

BMW DOES NOT install ANYYYYYYY AfterMarket Parts. YOU have to install the sensor yourself AFTER you get the OEM Alarm in your car. The dealer just installed the alarm for me. Now, I'm waiting for my shock to arrive...and then I'll figure out a way to wire it in

Whoa,

Can someone please explain the difference between installing the sensor:
a) under the hood
b) in the headliner

cause I'm thinking of simply going with the under the hood install since it already has a DIY.(refer the post #1)

reason's i'd rather have it in the headliner are as follows:

protection from the elements
equal sensor coverage
sensor is disabled when you pop the trunk (otherwise you must unlock the car before opening the trunk w/ a hood install)
cleaner install, dealer won't notice it if you bring it in for service

Yeah the DIY is on how to install it on a e46.

http://www.imagestation.com/album/pi...91673971&idx=2

The only thing is the hood trigger on the e90 has 3 wires and the e46 only has two. I might try fooling around with it see if it works.
(Hopefully I'm talking about the right sensor )


Well anyway hopefully the DIY is of some help

i've given up lol, i regret cutting into my wires a little bit now-they're no longer pristine ahhaha

i wasnt to get it to work w/ the usis bt i don't know how to mimic the signal the usis sends

maybe someone could dange a weight from a string in front of the usis and have that for a shock alarm hahaha, it should technically work.
