Any 09 M3 (w/o factory alarm) owners who can confirm or deny that?

Best regards, south
2009 E93 with an early March build.... no audible and no blinking clown nose without the alarm.

Since I am on the cusp of the alarm "switchover" (e-mail I got from the dealer had me in production by March 5th), does anyone have an actual VIN cut off or date of prodcution cut off for the pre-wire delete? Is there an easy physical way of actually checking the car to see if the pre-wiring is in place?

I had not really considered the alarm until getting sucked into this thread, but may add it as DIY with dealer programming (if they will do it....BigWindy, your experience?) if the pre-wiring is actually in place.

Thanks for any information!
