Use the heated seat man.SheriffA said:i asked the dealer when i bought my car and he said because of the alarm system you can't get the remote starter.
Also really bmw recommends you drive the car immediately even when it is 15 degrees like it was this AM and i sat there for 5 min in my car with my balls almost freezing to the leather?
A4NoMore said:I have a Clifford remote start/alarm in my 2002 and it works like a charm. Like it was stated above it is not a do it yourself job, it is pretty complicated. I belive BMW wants you to drive the car right away for emisssion standards, the car is much cleaner when it's warm.
It IS possible to install a remote start system on a manual car. Now, some people do it the wrong way and just bypass the clutch safety switch(so car will start without clutch in) and rely on themselves to remember to leave it in neutral, which leads to runaway cars and such.Salvator said:Keep in mind, as someone has already pointed out, your car has to be an automatic... If you have a stick, forget about it...
