    Looks like i am in the minority then, no worries. Personally the idea that i and several others can accidentally unlock their car and open the windows while not even being outside .......or maybe while in Tesco's doing the shopping seems like a major fault in a "security" system.

    Many people are alive because its illegal to shoot them.

    TBH, I dont see why they need to make the fob range any further than 10ft anyway, unless you are running away from someone and need to unlock the car a bit before you dive into it! Bank Robbery maybe?
