: I am wanting to buy an alarm but I don't know
: the feature on the alarm: the automatic starter
: you know how you can turn your engine on from the outside... does that mess up your cars engine?
: i have a 98 bmw 318i and i was wondering which model was appropiate for my car.. please let me know.. perhaps some good motion detector alarm...
You cannot hook up a remote start feature on a BMW with EWS because the transponder inside the key will transmit if it is not in or around the ignition lock. There are ways around that but its more trouble than its worth. I prefer the BMW alarm.
