Your BMW can be stolen by any idiot with a $30 hacking kit

This apply to BMW built before Sept 2011. Here is the story:
http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2012...n-hacking-kit/

BMW reply:
http://www.bmw.co.uk/bmwuk/about/new...70000_,00.html

Read the reply, maybe BMW has a patch to fix this security hole!

"If you are concerned about this issue, you can contact our Customer Service department on 0800 083 4397 or your local BMW dealer, either of which will happy to advise on next steps."

Thanks

I think I want to order 1 of these kits to program an extra key so I have 3 keys instead of 2! Cheaper than the dealer programming!

I password protected my car so nobody can hack it. It's a day of the week and I even put a special character (!) after the day of week to make it even that much more secure.
