Ive uploaded a piece of the video that was posted by a member on FB. Another person has confirmed they also have the exact same chirp...
Have a listen (sorry for the loud music, video is not mine):

Yep...you found them. The 1st vid is the early wolf whistle...and the 2nd video is the same lock/unlock "chirp" alerts on my current 2006 X5 & my old 99 540iT. Plus its basically the same sound on my 2013 f06 lock/unlock alerts.

When I sold my 99 540iT...I had one of those D'OH moments...I wish I had swapped the alarm siren out of the e39 touring and put it into the e38 so that I could have reactivated the audible arm/disarm alerts. (again, that's how much I hate the wolf whistle) I could have had a good 6 years with the upgraded Road Runner "chirp" audible...but since I didn't change it...the e38 remained silent and only had the visual arm/disarm alerts.


Here's a video I found on youtube that shows how to change the various audible and visual alerts using PA Soft (sorry if the music annoys you...not sure why video uploaders feel the need to have music blaring during the informational videos...there's a reason why it is called "background" music.

My 06 has a more modern chirp. Not the wolf whistle. Not sure what device makes the chirp though, sorry. Perhaps the TIS will have it on a diagram?

The answer to where the arm/disarm "chirp" comes from was given in post #9 on the first page...it comes from the DWA alarm siren by way of a signal sent from the GM to arm/disarm (see the 4th paragraph AND the illustration in the repost of the info that was in post #9 below).

And again...the modern "beep, beep'" arm/disarm chirp when locking/unlocking a BMW has been around since around the 1998/99 model year. If anyone knows a 1998 BMW owner...we can nail down when the wolf whistle ended and the beep, beep began. My 97 e38 had the "wolf whistle"...my 99 e39 had the "beep, beep"...so the switch over occurred sometime between 1997 & 1999.

Based on info from the part database the siren you posted is a tilt/inclination siren that is also offered on the e85 Z4. When you pull up the Z4 diagram...it also lists the electrical connector (#11 in the diagram below) and when you click on its part number...it lists the e53 X5.

So it appears that this siren uses the same electrical connector as the regular siren (which also shares the same part number with the e85 Z4)...so it looks like it should be plug n play:

{Z4 diagram...click link below and note that #3 lists the same part nbr you posted and as well as in the X5's diagram...and #11 is the electrical harness used in multiple BMWs}

{E53 diagram...you can see the regular siren (#4) and the siren you posted (#5)...as well as #11 the electrical harness}
