Subject: <misc>Excellent Deal on Stereo and Alarm for BMW's
I happened to be browsing the Website for Sound Conceptions, an online Auto
Stereo place, that has a huge and well put together website. I have ordered
stuff from them in the past and have dealt with great customer service.
Anyways, for anyone interested, they apparently have a connector adaptor for
the factory alarm plug that resides under the passenger side dash. If you
use this adaptor, you can just plug in a Prestige 600 Platinum alarm into
the other side of the adapter, and presto, you are armed. This sounds like
a good alternative to the overpriced factory "keyless entry" alarm system
that goes for hundreds of dollars. I think the alarm and connector together
were something like $132 for the alarm system and $20 for the connector.
Its some sort of clearance deal. I have had a Prestige 150 in my 1992 318is
for 5 years now, with not a single problem. Tested all the points of entry
the other day, still works fine. I dont know the URL for Sound Conceptions,
just do a Yahoo search...it will come up. Oh yeah, they also carry the CD
changer AND adapter needed to connect a changer to the factory stereo for
1991 through 1995 models. Price was $365 if I recall.
