    Have you seen stolen1M's post? Stolen 1M CCTV

    It makes you wonder how many other manufacturers have the same issue...

    I've only heard of BMW having this problem where thieves can programme a carkey in 3minutes with the right tools.

    It only takes a minute. Look at the link CrazyFool put up. The other 2 minutes are smashing the window, plugging into the OBD and pushing the car away so the owner wont hear it.

    Its a disgrace really. Thieves will always figure out a way

    a lot of the videos now on the internet... they spend a few minutes around the car and the alarm does not even sound... how are they managing to bypass the siren? no flashing lights/no alarms... just unlock it and job done. Lord knows.

    the old bump and run has started happening around this side of london... slight bump from the back.. person gets out to say WTF?! and someone else jumps in and then drives off. fkd up times.. hope all these scum burn to smitherines..

    I'm no whizz, but apparently anything within within 4 inches of the door panel will not be detected by the alarm system. Great place to stick the port to the CPU system then!!!
