I don't know if they add the red nose if the alarm is not ordered. I will be at the Welt on Friday and will ask them.

It seems like there is a lot of confusion about the March changes.
This alarm this has been a big pain in the arse for me! My car was ordered 3/23 and finished procuction on 4/9. When I ordered it, the alarm was not an option yet and my car went to 150 status before I could do anything (we changed a car already scheduled for production with my 150 came quick). Dealership ensured me that it is coming prewired though. So, I demanded a quote for the install so that they wouldn't charge me any more if it didn't come prewired. Figured that was the best I could do right now. The alarm can be found on the accessories page on the BMWUSA site for $571. Initial quote including labor was over $900. I got them down some, but it's still costing way more than the now $400 option....bad timing huh.
