just remeber that a keyless entry will not activate the double deadbolt lock found on the E30M3 as the only way this locks is with the key turned in the drivers door ( this is why your hear a double click when locking an M3), the solenoid for central locking (which is whats used by keyless entry ) will NOT activate the deadbolt!

I just bought a kit on ebay for keyless remote entry. It is suppose to work on any older 3 series with power locks. Just wondering if anyone has ever installed something simular and how much work is involved. Any pointers? I don't have much for directions, just a sheet that explains each wire.
