So even without an alarm, the engagement of the immobiliser sounds and flshes as if the car is alarmed.

Therefore I don't see why you need an alarm for the M3 and why my conclusions are wrong...
This is great----main reason for me to get the alarm was for above listed feastures but if I-Drive has this feature, think I will forgoe the alarm....
