There are several posts on MINI2 regarding alarms, I have seen no mention of an alarm in any of the USA specs. Can anyone confirm that an alarm will be standard, optional or available at all on USA cars?

Tom,

The alarm will be a dealer installed option on the MINI, we have not recieved the price for it yet though. Ought to have that info in about a month or two when we get the order guides and prices.

Don't know if this makes any difference to you, but FWIW, if its a dealer fitted item it will be a different item to the one over here. Ours is factory fitted only, and dealers can't even disconnect it, let alone fit it.

Thanks for your answers, I was afraid that this might be the case. I wonder if the US dealers will be allowed to charge whatever they want for the alarm?

Maybe I'm just being whiny, but isn't that pretty weak? I mean, a VW Golf costing $15K comes with an alarm as standard equipment, but I want to spend $23K on a nicely optioned Cooper S and I have to pay extra for an alarm?
