if your car is pre 95 than it's OBD1 if its 96+ it's OBD2.
its been a while since I've checked but i do believe most cars are pre wired for a factory (or factory style) alarm. I dont think there is a difference for the alarm harness between OBD1 & OBD2 cars.

here's the company I had looked at previously.
hope this helps.
p.s. you BOUGHT an alarm

Your E36 Should be prewired, the connection is on the passenger side above the kick panel.

For the alarm module you will need the harness in order to plug it into the vehicle side harness.

Whether the vehicle is OBD1 or 2 has no relevance to the module however there were two different types used for the E36 and both will mate up to the car.
