I believe up to $300 and will require a bit of novice programming you could do yourself by buying pa soft bmw scanner for under $30.

If you take it to the dealer, programming may exceed $80.

I'm curious why you would want this. No one even pays attention to those anymore.

You would do better getting something more up to date than original e46 equipment. Like a sensor that alerts a key fob if your car is touched. There's newer stuff out there than the annoying technology from the early 90s that wouldn't go away

If your dead set.....but the whole system from ebay for next to nothing

Only drawback of any aftermarket system is the difficulty of incorporating it all into one key, or without creating more work on installation, and/or complicating the electronics. Newbies like plug and play

That's true. My skill level is good so I don't factor in that stuff.

I would only do something if it was seamless and not noticeable.

I might make an exception. For the Pdc on the license plate bracket. But that still looks clean.

I bought a brand new, still in box, unit for about $250. My daughter installed it herself in about an hour, then paid the local indy garage to program the car to accept it.

Buy the kit and PASoft, and install it yourself, then program it ON. You should be finished for about $300, unless you use the used system you found on eBay.
