Whats are the best anti-theft devices for a BMW M3.

I don't think I have the factory alarm turned on I was told that the chip in the key was a good theft protection device and that theives could not steal a M3 unless they got a copy of the key or towed the vehicle. But then I received conflicting information from a friend who used to be a car sales person that said that you could hot wire a BMW M3.

Yeah the key helps, but this in addition to a OEM alarm which gives you tilt sensor and motion sensor makes it a lot more difficult for those bastards to steal your ride.:thumbup:

Check out the Clifford systems if you want something good. Also, not sure if the M3 has it but on the sedans at least you can remove the keyhole on the door that is easy to pop.

I have the oem alarm. I o not want lojack (or boomerang in Canada) simply because if they get my ride, I would rather not getting it back.

You never know what they have done to it...

One comment on LoJack.

If someone rips-off your car, strips it down or wraps it around a tree...do you REALLY WANT IT BACK? It will always be TAINTED.

what about the chip in the key thing? I thought it was impossible to hotwire the m3?

How about running a 440 source to under all your door handles so that when some **** tries to jack your car he will get knocked on his ass. Hopefully the shock will also cramp his hand and paralize it for life. I was thinking of getting one of those tazer guns.
