  1. Comfort/Keyless entry Mod - To Be Offered by BMW?

    BMW i3
    With the rise of the theft of keyless entry vehicles by the use of relay attacks, manufacturers are responding by adding motion sensors which put the key fob to sleep after a few minutes of being still and to wake up once moved again. The new 7 Series key fob has this. Has anyone heard whether...
  2. Keyless entry and Start

    Volkswagen Passat GTE
    I've had my 2017 Passat GTE Advance estate since May of last year and absolutely loving it.

  6. A Pretty Awesome Thing Happened!

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    We took our kids to the cinema this weekend and on the drive home (in the Leaf of course), my partner (who was driving) decided to make a detour to pick up our ICE that he'd left parked near a station for his weekly commute. He parked alongside the ICE car, left the "engine" running in the...
