What is a realistic concern about over-exposure is a big drop in residuals of affected cars and a big hike in insurance.
I had some time wasters break into my garage last week
, they took the first thing they saw which was my commuter bike, cost £200 4 years ago....about 1 meter away deeper in my garage was my road bike worth about £800, next to my road bike was 2 set of wheels each worth £300+ each all left untouched
....there are some surprisingly dumb criminals out there..
I'm glad my cars OBD port is now not easily accessible and has a highly visible Disklok on at night, the last thing I want is people like these bike thieves "having a go" at my car with some key cloner they have bought off ebay
Incidently my garage is now fully alarmed up and everthing secured with various locks and cables..
