BMW has always sold //3s at least E46 and E92 with a full alarm systems. Given the high risk nature of the car and easily attracting car thieves, having the alarm system lowers the premium. If the car doesn't come with the alarm system most people don't install and then pay a premium in insurance. When insuring the ///3 the insurer don't even bother asking whether it has a full alarm system. The base equipment on the car is released to the insurance industry prior to the release of the car to the market. That's what enable you to get an insurance rating on a car.
