Er, several PM's sent! But as Vanny quite rightly points out, if someone wants to get into your car, they will!

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Now I dunno if this works ........

Hhmm, I think I can understand how some plippers might work doing this but if you have an original CX/BX plip (or indeed any plip that uses infra-red) I really dont know how holding it to a phone would help! Unless maybe if you have a video phone with unbelievably good refresh / frame rate????

I agree with Vanny, dont lock your keys in the car!! and if you do it often, buy a ford since any ford key will indeed open any ford (up to about 1995 anyhow).
