I've installed the full alarme kit with wire and miror on my E92... Then coding for activate it.
Now all features are working fine but...
- no audible beep for lock/unlock
- no panic button

Great DIY. Works like a charm.

However upon going to the stealer for activation, I balked at the $200 they wanted to charge for activation and 'progman upgrades.' I pointed out the fact that any progman updates that had to be performed while activating the alarm were covered under warranty (as per the BMW installation instructions posted on this site). So instead of trying to figure out how much to bill me just for activation they waived the charge.

I own a e90 323i in Australia. There is no spare wiring in the rear interior light and no clown nose is fitted to the mirror. Is there a different kit available for cars not pre-wired???

Maybe something went wrong with the software update? Those are two symptoms that there software "wasnt" done. Id go back to the dealer.

I think here, in France, we haven't the two options activate
audible beep for lock/unlock and panic button
so no solution for the moment

Do you have Idrive?
If so, the audible beep for lock/unlock is an option you need to turn on.
go to car settings/door locks/confirmation to change settings.
If you do not have Idrive, you might need to take the car to the dealer for them to do it.

Have you contacted the dealer about this?
They are not there because of an error on the software update or
they are not an option for your car?

I think, it's not regular for our country, I've been to dealer 2 times with my car to ask... And on the same E92, but with factory alarm, it's the same thing

Installed mine per the walk through, (including cutting a piece of wood to fit inside the jack hole) and everything worked as advertised (including the motion sensor, and the siren).
Prior to the install, my dealer quoted me $550 + tax for the alarm & install.
I bought mine on eBay for $169 shipped. (factory sealed box too)
My dealer quoted me $109 for the software update, but I'm going to haggle pretty hard when I go in on Monday.

I think I'm having some trouble with my blue-tooth anyway.

Where did you get for $169? I am looking on eBay and they are going for $250?

I got mine from Ebay $230 shipped.
I installed it yesterday for about an hour max and will have it programmed this Friday. I need to have it done at the dealership since thay need to replace my rear dome light because it does't have the holes for the ultrasonic module to work.

Can you please let us know which dealership did you end up going and how much they charged you for activation?

140 BMW of Monterey, they gave me a bunch of crap at first since I didn't buy it from them and installed it myself. Somethign about "we don't know if you installed it correct and stuff so thats gonna cost you extra" and then "sometimes the softwhere doesn't take so we might have to do it a few times" blah blah blah. FInally just settled because I didn't feel like driving north to San Jose an hour + more north.

My appointment for the activation this Friday is with BMW of Seattle. I was quoted one hour worth of labor ( roughly $110 )
Will see how it goes because they need to replace my rear dome light also which is under warranty.

Just like I expected, I was charged exactly $110 by BMW of Seattle.
The only problem now is they did not have the rear dome light instock, they just ordered it and will probably not be here for awhile.
It took them about an hour and a half to do it.
