Hello everyone. Just got a 2004 330Ci Convertible and man do I like it so far. Had it for 24 hours and already ran a tank of gas through it just joy riding.
Anyway, couple of questions for you all.
1. I read some where that the 2004's come with the factory alarm, but when I lock the car using the remote (remote in key) nothing appears to happen, like no flashing light under rear view mirror. Does the alarm have to be activated from the dealer? Does it actually come with an alarm? Am I working it correctly if it does come with the car and if it is activated?? Read the manual, appears with an Astrict so thinking that the alarm does not come with the car??
2. Stereo - ok it is nice but I really want my XM radio. Is the radio satelite compatible? I heard that it is and that it is Sirius. If the head unit will work for satelite, can I find a unit to plug into the head unit so it goes through stock? Do they make one for XM? Where could I hide the antenna?
3. I have this one tacked to another thread, (fuse box thread), but, is there any information on here to do a hardwire for a radar detector to the fuse box over the glove box? I've seen a few different ways people hooked up theres but mostly it was done on a coupe and at the interior lights. I guess I can wire to there if I have to. Is there any instruction for convertible? Last thing I want to do is fry the electrical. Detector is a 8500 x50 that I'll be hooking up via phone cable.
Other than that, I think that is all I want to tackle for now.
Thanks in advance.
