    So had my car stolen the other day. But managed to get her back a few hours later.

    Thought I didn’t have to worry as I no longer had my keyless A7 and thought it wouldn’t work with my new car as it was a fob insert.

    It was taken in minutes and this is how:

    Trust me don’t be like me and think it won’t happen.

    The other option if you have keyless entry keep your key (don’t laugh) in the microwave ! It blocks the frequency when their trying to pick it up standing at your front door.

    Another option is this:

    Which sounds and looks alot better but for the time being microwave.

    Just looking out guys, been a high rise in S models.

    JG,its all about the inconvienince for them,I see your one is shinier than mine and two cylinders less so even more of a pull.
    I don't subscribe to the line that "if they really want it they will get it" if we make it harder to pinch then they'll go elsewhere.

    Your right mate, if they want it, they'll find a way, but I don't intend making it easy for them.
    We must protect our cars any way we can.

    2nd that, is it just a fuse ? If so let’s hope they haven’t been down to Halfords.

    Cheers @arad85 ill do that the weekend. Annoyingly they were able to bypass the deadlock on my car when they stole it but still worth a shot for the time being.
