    I am looking at making my central locking a remote system. I don't won't an alarm just the doors, boot, petrol cap to unlock. What are peoples thoughts on this kit.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/UNIVERSAL-KEYL...item564069979f

    What are my options with the keys that come with the kit i could get them cut no problem but what about the ews chips?

    Every system will work, connect with the + lock and + unlock wires and use the 2 diode trick to lock the fuelflap as well.

    Not OEM remote controls have single lock but BMW offers doublelock.
    Advantages are; it's not possible to open the doors mechanically from inside and fuel filler flap closes too.

    I found schematic! It's for an alarm but it's the same wiring for a remote control device. Works fine. I bought an Ebay set with two fob's. It has a strong transmitter, at least 300 meters!

    Full diodes schematic at
    http://www.understeer.com/doublelock.shtml
    I use 2 1N4001 1 A diodes.


    If you use the key as well a locksmith can duplicate the key. Your original BMW key has a EWS transponder chip it's must be into the new key. It's a tiny chip, maybe it fits in your key. Otherwise find a solid plastic place and cut out with a Dremel tool and glue the chip into it. Best place is as close as possible to the ringantenna.
    Works fine on my 323i!

    This is the system i used.
    http://www.rclick.co.uk/product_info...roducts_id=671

    I followed the instructions attached.

    Basically once you remove the glove box i connected the live wires to the live of the cig lighter. The earth to the earthing point. The sender wires into the block on the central locking module. The indicator wires are into the plug for the indicators under the steering wheel. Its a dead easy install and only took a couple of hours with me taking ym time. Here is a pic of the keys they are really modern looking and come with the badges.
