Can remote start be retrofitted to a car on the lot?

I'm looking at an M340i on the lot, but it doesn't have the remote start option. Is that something that the dealer can add? Thanks

Not sure if it can be added after the fact, but possibly just a 'coding' thing? Although, its possible there is some hardware and/or a different fob.

Possibly after market? But that's kinda risky, they never integrate well!

They used to have a remote start option for the F10 to add after the fact. I would ask them.
