Maybe we need to buy "a boot" for added security.

Two Mercedes’ worth over £111,000 STOLEN from driveway in SECONDS - is yours at risk too?



TWO brand new Mercedes cars were stolen in just sixty seconds in another relay keyless entry car hack.

A shocking new video reveals how the owner of two brand new Mercedes’ was the victim of a double keyless entry theft.

Owner Mohammed Tuma, 57, was completely unaware that over £110,000 worth of cars were being taken from his driveway by criminals while he slept.

CCTV footage from the property reveals a gang of three criminals exploiting a relay car theft to pinch the motors in a matter of seconds.

I took out the keyless go button in my car the day I bought it. Is it really so difficult to stick the fob in the ignition? I also keep my cars in the garage (as one should), rather than sitting in the driveway while I stuff 10,000 boxes of useless old crap in the garage.

I dunno if this car hack can be done without the keyless go button installed, but just in case it can, I also keep my fob in a farraday pouch when out in public after parking the car, and once I am home for the night.
