alarm coding

Would the whole car's software be reprogrammed when I get an alarm installed or do they only reprogram certain portions for the alarm?

Only activate the alarm not mess with your software

Doesn't the BMW system sometimes mandate installing software updates it finds even when all the tech wants is to activate the alarm? I've stood watching updates go down to my cars several times when I was seeking only alarm activation.

Your alarm will require an activation, not an update. However, if to activate the alarm ISTA/P detects that your software requires to be updated as well then it will do both.
