Where is the cheapest place to buy the factory alarm?

Online? I think my dealer wanted $350. Is it the same as the normal 3 series alarm?

Tischer has it for $230. I had my dealer match the price and toss it into the trunk of my car. The M3 alarm is the same part as the other 3 series alarms. Only difference with the M3 is that you actually don't have to hook up the hood switch as it already comes with the M3. Make sure you pull the REAR domelight when installing the sensor, not the one in the front. It's a piece of cake.

Sweet. Maybe I'll try to have the dealer match Circle.

The parts price is $311. I got mine through Circle for $235 + $17 shipping. Install takes about an hour. Follow Badfish's advice.

anybody have a link for DIY for the alarm install? Does it need to be activated by the dealer at all?
