    Im not 100% sure. But i think that if you swap all that over you will be fine. You will have to swap the EWS module as well.
    And dont forget the door locks...

    Hiya,

    I have a BMW 320i 1993 Coupe. I have lost the key fob and only have the key. I cant get into the car as the alarm keeps going off and i obviously cannot start the car up and the red light on the dash board is lit up.

    Does anyone know of a way i can turn the alarm off and sort the immobiliser out so that i can get into my car and drive it to the BMW garage to get a replacement?? Ive had to go into the boot and disconnect the battery just to stop the alarm constantly going off.

    Help please.....
