Hey Guys,

Well, my new car came with the factory alarm system. It was set to honk the horn when you arm/disarm it. I figured that I could change it to chirp like my brother's M5 but no luck with the dip switches. Then I searched for the siren and couldn't find it. Could not see it anywhere in the engine bay or near the firewall. I turned the sound off and figured that would be fine, but I really like having an audio or visual confirmation. So my question is this, can I add a siren (factory or aftermarket) or relay to make the parking lights flash? Which is easier or cheaper? Anyone with experience care to chime in? Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
'92 525i
