Hi Guys,

Does anyone know if Audi has responded to this? I'm a bit concerned especially as I've ordered my next Audi with keyless entry.

Apparently BMWs were also targeted but BMW released an update to there system management to prevent it.

I tweeted both Audi and AudiUK about it today and neither responded on the matter.

Someone on a different thread suggested Disklok.
Seems like a good idea to me for under £100, the visual deterrent of it alone must be worth that money.
Anyone here got one? Do they do what it says on the tin? any opinions good or bad for them?

This device needs 25 seconds to train a key

Its ok guys, that device doesn't appear in their top selling products
Mind you at €10.000 for the kit, the thieves are probably concentrating their efforts on trying to steal that!

Audi alarm immobiliser is Thatchem approved. No need for other security other than keeping any keyless entry keys away from criminals with sensors.
