I went forward with my E90 alarm install, and took some pics along the way. I would say that it is an easy install, as long as you have some mechanical confidence and experience. The "hardest" part is removing the left rear wheel to install the siren. Since our cars do not come with a...

Ordered wrong alarm?

So I ordered the Alarm from the part number I found in the 3's accessory catalog (65-12-0-403-658). Does this include the full wiring system to put an alarm on an E90 that isn't pre-wired? I think it will still have all the required equipment, but some extra wiring will be in there too. It hasn't even shipped yet so I might be able to have them order the correct part, but I bet the cost would be the same.

Maybe I'm slow, or not looking in the right place, but I can't seem to find that part number on any of the online BMW part vendors (i.e. Circle, Pacific, etc.) Anyone know where I can order this online?

Thanks

Quick question for you guys who have done the alarm install themselves. My friend owns a garage with lifts, so he and I are going to the do the install there, this way we can use one of the lifts for removing the rear tire.
So heres my question, since we are using a lift, and NOT a jack, I wont need to worry about these little jack supports thingys right?

I just got finished doing my alarm I bought thru circle BMW. It was easy, simple and with this thread straight to the point. Take your time, read the instructions above and should be no problem. My red light started to blink right away. One thing I would like to emphasize is the removal of the dome light housing. I use a plastic spatula/cake knife. Thanks a lot for whoever put this thread together, you saved me a lot of money.

Yea, the install is pretty easy. I got it activated for free because I waited 4 hours, but they also didnt wash the car, so I'm kinda

But for the 40 bucks, I just washed her myself the next day...

I bought the oem alarm this morning ($232.05 + tax) although my 325i SG is still on the ship on its way to Port Hueneme. I printed a copy of CC 330i oem alarm installation post to guide me when it's time to install the alarm.

From reading all the post above, to finish the DIY installation of DWA (oem alarm system), you need to bring it to the dealer and have them perform the CIP Retrofit Procedure regardless of what version your CIP. Is this correct?

Thanks,

Most likely, unless the BMW factory already fixed the problem. You can just look at it when you go to pick up the car

Thanks,

Are you talking about programming the alarm to be installed or the new trim piece on the light?
