I also have frequent problems with the remote for the alarm (never use the spare one, though). I sometimes have to try more than 5 times before the alarmsystem arms / disarms. Changing the battery doesn't really make any difference.
I never mentioned this problem to my dealer, but BMW have recalled my LT for swapping the alarm control unit. It will be done next week. Hopefully that will also solve the problem of the remote. I don't know the exact reason for the recall, but I will let you know if I find out.
