BMW ALARM
on: February 10, 2018, 09:17:49 AM
Hi Folks
Has anyone retro fitted ( or had a dealer retro fit for them) a BMW alarm system to their XR ?
If so, was it a straight forward job (DIY!) and how much did it cost?
Cheers
Craig

Don't bother DIY-ing it.  Unless the installation is carried out by a Thatcham-approved installer, then your whole system counts for nought with insurers.

I suspect that dealer-installation of the BMW one. - would be prohibitive.

Suggest - spend the money on a top-quality alarmed disc-lock/wheel-lock.

My sentiments to, I tend to remove non oem Immobilisers /  Alarms as being more trouble than they are worth ( Had to pay Datatool  an extortionate rate to disconnect there system ).  I use an alarmed disc-lock. And chain if parked up overnight when away from home.  :305:

I have the BMW alarm. Works fine if set to Auto but you need to turn off via setup if you are on a ferry or the channel tunnel as the vibration sets it off easily. Think it costs over £200 if dealer fits it

OEM alarm is no issue at all, best alarm I have ever had, very easy to turn off,  :305:

Even with the BMW alarm I still use the alarmed disk lock and chain.

Dont buy the BMW disc lock - its too big and difficult to unlock without setting off the alarm as the key is inserted in the end and is difficult to insert quickly. Its also expensive.
