Fun to drive...but SECURE?

ReviewGreat car to drive, amazing acceleration, tightest turn radius I've ever seen, and corners on a dime. Had some intermittent mechanical/electrical problems - but here's the concern on this car, people: It's been stolen twice in the last month. Both times, the thieves bipassed the FACTORY alarm without tripping it and started the car without touching the ignition or damaging the column whatsoever. BMW said it was impossible until they saw the car once we recovered it. Then they said there must be another key out there...until they accounted for them all. BEWARE...they'll say it's theft proof...but it's not any more.
Best Featuresacceleration, interior layout, classic aesthetics.
Worst FeaturesFigure out how to build a foolproof security system. The so-called chip in the key doesn't secure this car anymore.
