: Well, after installing my E46 alarm kit, which I got for $229 from Pacific BMW, in under an hour I just got the alarm programmed at my local dealer.........FREE OF CHARGE! So, all told, this was a savings of $256 by doing it myself.
: I didn't even buy my car from this dealer.....they just want me to service it there.....needless to say they have earned my business.
: It is nice to see that customer service, with an eye to the future, is alive and well.
: I guess the moral here is to install your own alarm and 'shop' your future servicing out to see if you can get your alarm programmed for free.
