are there any X3 (e83) owners who have the factory alarm installed? I got my alarm installed from the dealer the other week, and i'm a little disappointed...

First, the alarm is pretty quiet. The acoustic arm/disarm is far more "quiet" than the alarm on my e90... Sometimes, i have to lock/unlock the car a 2nd time because i can barely hear it.

2nd... the acoustic ARM notification is "active" as per the BMW programming "machine", but the acoustic armed notification doesn't work. Easily put, the car doesn't beep when i lock it... anyone else have these issues?

Many thanks in advance for the help/advice!
