    Default Is it possible to steal a Vectra-C without keys?

    As the title suggest, I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience in either their car being stolen or a friend's being stolen without having their keys taken.


    I'm not after finding out how to do it - so don't get the wrong idea.

    I'm wondering if it's possible.
    Modern cars were seen to be almost impossible to steal without the keys.
    But i've noticed more and more modern 'unstealable' cars being stolen without keys.

    The most recent being the new BMW which apparantly can now be stolen in less than 3 minutes without keys, by reprograming something in the car's (presume like Tech2).


    Has anyone had theirs stolen without keys before.
    I know someone who's recently had theirs stolen and found burnt out, and the insurance engineer claims there was no sign of forced entry, ignition stack was not damaged and it's impossible to steal without key.


    Just wondered whether this was the case or not.

    for me i would say any car could be taken without keys if the person new there way around alarms + security measures.
    i seen the thread about the bmw"s getting pinched, and with there history and branding its a mega fail on there behalf.

    The easiest way is with a flat bed with a crane like the bailiffs use as nobody takes any notice of them
