Smashed, Hacked and gone in 90 seconds
I remember reading an article on here some time ago, regarding BMW keyless entry being easily overcome by thieves, and I was pleased I had bought an Audi!!
But in this weeks Sunday Times, I read of Mr. Witte, who had bought an RS4, with cobra trak, and Keyless entry. He had 2 CCTV cameras monitoring his pride and joy.
In the early hours of the morning, he received a call from the security company, telling him that his car was being driven away at speed!
12 minutes later, the thieves had disabled the tracking device!! the car hasn't been seen since.
The CCTV shows that it took 90 seconds to enter and steal the car.
The police say that hundreds of Audis have been stolen this year in the midlands alone. Audi thefts have quadrupled in a year.
Audi have viewed the footage, but refuse to admit that there is a problem! They say the evidence is inconclusive! Even the dealership who sold Mr. Witte his car, have had one stolen using the same method.
Since the keyless entry is clearly not secure, and the tracker can also be disabled, I wonder what we are meant to do? Post an armed guard?
