    you have a few options here. you can buy the BMW synthetic 5w-30 from the dealership. It should cost about $6/qt and you'll need 7 bottles. the non-dealer option is to use a BMW Longlife approved motor oil. there aren't that many of them, but the ones i know of in the US market (i don't know where you're located) are: - Mobil1 0w-40 (BMW-Longlife-2001) - Castrol Syntec 0w-30 (BMW-Longlife-2001) - Valvoline Synpower 5w-40 (BMW-Longlife-2004) It is important to use one of the above oils or at least one with an ACEA A3 rating, so there's more to it than just having the right viscosity/oil weight. this ratings insure that the oil will continue to protect the engine under extended use, especially for long oil change intervals as suggested by BMW. personally, i do oil changes every 7500 miles. and I use any of the 3 oils listed above based on what I can find at my local stores.

    Well an E46 did not come with an alarm. The car does come with key-less entry. You will have to purchase a factory alarm system. When they install it they will ask you if you want the lights to blink and if you want it to beep. Sorry to say, but this is the only way to make this happen.

    If you have an alarm take it to the dealer and get them to activate the audible note on doors locking actually even if you don't have an alarm you can still have them activate the audible beep on locking and unlocking can be done.also check out this link on hints and tricks all about your car.good luck.that activation should take no more than 10 minutes so don;t let the dealer fool you into something that cost alot of money.

    Your answer to my question shows me how much your little brain works bit*c. You need to burn your house and stay in there and watch yourself/ your house burn, that would be very fun for you since you are a nasty miserable bit*h .You are another typical trash that should burn.

    Your remote locking module's connection to the flashers might have gone bad... if there's a fuse, it might have blown.

    Or you might need to change out the remote lock module...
