My Ride: 2014 320i & X3
2014 320i first BMW just realized it has no alarm. :-(

Ok so I did not know that all BMW did not come with an alarm. I picked a car I liked and bought it off the lot. I learned my lesion. Well my question is if there is an aftermarket alarm that works with my current lock and unlock remote.. The reason really I want the alarm is to make sure I lock and unlock my doors. Currently there is no audible nose that is made when I lock and unlock my doors. Only flashing light but when I am away from my car I have to walk back to see if it is locked. Secondly, and most of all I am a fan of pressing the panic button (it has no panic button on the remote) to locate my car in the parking lot.
Any input would be appreciated.

I get the alarm thing. But I try to remember that locks only stop honest people.
You may be able to get it to make a noise when you lock it, by checking in the settings. I have gotten into a habit of using the touch on the door handle to lock and unlock. The key never leaves my pocket. As far as the panic button to fine the car, you can use the find my car part of the My BMW Remote app. Worst comes to worst, you can call BMW Assist and have them honk the horn.

Thanks for your response, here are som things I found out.
1. I do not have an option in my I drive to honk my horn just flash my lights during lock and unlock.
2. I do not have the feature that allows you to just touch the handle to unlock.
3. I have no a clue about how to log into BMW assist to see if I can use the iphone app. If it requires me to have gps in my care I am once a gain out of luck.
