    Hi guys just bought myself a '92 318is Coupé Manual so thought I would join up and say hullo!
    She seems in decent shape got a little bit of work needed on the arches but very minor looks like

    quickie question for you, if the alarm is armed will it disarm by using the key to unlock or only the remote? (got 3 remotes but only one seems to work)
    if the alarm was going off would the key still unlock the door?
    if it was going off and the remote failed could i jsut unlock the car, lift up the bonnet and turn off the alarm that way?

    Welcome along.
    Keys should unlock only I would think. Try changing batteries in the remote.
    Clear your heads and get ready to run.
    Remember, the best times are yet to come.

    Fakenham and Holt area of the world

    weirdly enough the remote that works has a battery reading 11volts, the other remote reads 12.3 and doesnt work :( so guessing battery isnt the issue will have to experiment with the alarm and trying the key off method, i would like to use the alarm but with only one remote for it i am hesitant..... tho if the pop the bonnet key in box turn off method works i will swap the best battery into the remote that works and use it

    haha no way awesome! i dont know.... it was fitted by a BMW main dealer in milton-keynes by the looks of the paperwork, i got a small mountain of paper with the car! soon as i get her taxed I will probably head out that way with a few mates,

    heres one of the pics from the listing, she needs two little things done in the oily area but my gf's dad is a mechanic and hes going to do those over the next few days so a BIG thanks to him, then its just a case of waiting for the insurance certificate to arrive so i can tax her and enjoy her

    heres one of the pics from the ebay listing
