: ... and it works nice.
: The only problem I had was the fact that the dealer did not send my the right trim pannel. I think they sent me the one from 5-series (and in the transmitter itself it saied "E39"). I guess transmitter itself is no different - it only uses two wires for power.
: The trim panel dealer sent me was also sand color, yet it was slightly different than mine. Also, it was slightly larger and did not fit into place. I cut a whole in my exisiting panel (not too complicated, if you are not trying to do it too fast).
: I spent some time locating the wire that supposed to be plugged into the transmitter. BMW flashlight came in handy in the search.
: The tramsmitter is fairly easy to program. The only complain I have is that it only works when the key is in accessory position or the engine is running. So I guess you have to close the garage door before you shut down the engine... have to change my habits.
: Next step - installing the alarm (tonight).
Please let me know how the installation went with the alarm. Good Luck!
