Stealing BMW X5 FAQ

Who in their right minds though of making a car's security all computer controlled?

Stealing a car USED to be a risky business - now all you do is park near an X5 with a laptop and a wireless card - hack into the systems and drive it away!!!

Anyone wanna know where I park it?! I've always found the Norwich Union very good when it comes to coughing up. 'Nick me Happy!'
