My first and possibly last post on this forum....
They are not just targetting high end Beemers now. My 2006 320D was stolen last night - no leather, no satnav just a bog standard model.
I had no idea about this security flaw. BMW have my details on record and routinely email me servicing and sales offers - but no mention of this security fix they are now apparently offering ; according to the BBC Watchdog page:
It had been off the road for the past week waiting for a fuel pump repair....Cost me £400 . Only got the car back yesterday - wish they had nicked it before the repair!!
I dont suspect the repair place -been using them for years - for my E46 too...
