A recent programme on BBC TV called Watchdog highlighted security problems with thieves reprogramming blank keys and using them to steal high end cars. BMW, Landrover and Volkswagen were all highlighted. Owners of these vehicles were advised to install vehicle trackers and also use an old fashioned steering lock. We are awaiting delivery of an I3 and are concerned at this issue. Even if it is insured, insurance companies often do not pay the full cost of a replacement, and in any case the 6 month lead time is unlikely to get any shorter.
Is anyone on this list concerned as to this issue, and what steps have been taken to resolve it? The problem seems to be, as always, if something is perfectly secure it becomes impossible to use even by the righftul owner.
