    Don't know if anyone watched the itv tonight programme about car theft and specifically the keyless theft with the signal boosters.
    Anyway I have started to panic so just made myself a home made faraway box for key which works a treat
    Can stand with the box pressed against the window and car will not open. Open the box slightly and it picks up the signal[​IMG][​IMG]

    Do forget one for your spare key too ;)

    I bought a couple of pouches from Amazon for £10 but that idea looks great for a DIY solution :D

    Spare key is in a locked drawer wrapped in foil now lol. I am going to look for a more permanent solution or a nicer looking one perhaps this is just a temporary solution to this problem which I had heard of but didn't realise how easy and cheaply this signal booster can be bought and how quick these bar stewards can have your pride and joy away.

    I saw a vid on FB where they cut the lids off drink cans and they are good enough to block the signal.
