They stole a bmw on Leverage

On the latest episode of Leverage, the crew stole a bmw, I think it was a 5 series. They hacked the door lock using a rf signal and then used a secret backdoor combination code to start the car without the key. Moving the gear shift, wipers and radio knob in a special combination apparently starts the car!

Unfortunately or maybe fortunately, when I tried the secret combination in my car, it did not start.

The thing that really makes me sad though, is I thought that some of the cool stuff they do on Leverage was based in part on reality. Like you could actually hack whatever given the proper tools, training, etc. But given that the team started a bmw by moving the radio knob and wipers in a special way, I assume all the other cool stuff they do is completely made up too.

Now I gotta rethink using any of the skills I learned on Burn Notice because that might be made up too.
