how many times over what kind of period? Its a common tactic of car theives to repeatedly set off your alarm untill you get fed up and lock the car but leave the alarm off. Then they come an nick you car, or part of it, in silence.
Be careful!!!!

i have a 330ci convertable and my alarm is over sensitive it is always goingoff just wondering if any one out there has any advice. cheers
I suggest posting the question in the e46 forum where it will get more views of use to you. I shall move it there for you this time.

My advise would be to get the fault codes read for the alarm, there may well be a code stored in relation to a door switch e.t.c, I would also check the bonnet pin switch out as they can be common for playing up

I had exactly the same problem with my alarm, I got the codes read and it was because I had alot of loose change in the centre console slide tray bit!! I spent all the money and it has not gone off since! Apparently there is some kind of sensor in the centre console and the metalic coins were interfering with the signal! let me know how you get on!
