Alarm conversion kit for '11 E82

Hi guys. I don't think my car comes with pre wired factory alarm. At first I'm not really bother with it but becomes more aware about the safety soon after that. Does anyone know what I would need to retrofit the factory alarm? How much does it cost? Is any of you ever try this thing before? FYI, mine is 2011 E82.

I plan to do it in next few months but have to do my homework, which is research, right now. Please help me out guys. Really appreciate your thoughts and opinions. Thanks!

Did you find the solution? I'm completely lost in this one and don't really know about retrofitting alarm or whatsoever

Why go factory?

I installed a viper 5901 (~1 mile range) paging alarm with minimal fuss. You need a DB-ALL module, and you tap 5 wires to the car - power, ignition, can high, can low, ground.

All you gotta do is install the siren in the factory location - done.

You get an alarm that's way better than stock.

Where did you buy it? How much does it cost? Actually I never deal with alarm that's why I was thinking about the factory alarm. Thank you for letting me know other solution.
