My BMW 1M stolen without keys in 3 minutes! This is a video of a £43,000 BMW 1M Stolen at 3am in 3 minutes. The thieves accomplished this by accessing the BMW OBD port in the footwell by breaking the glass, reaching in and using a device to reprogram a blank key fob. The car was simply then unlocked and pushed off the drive and driven away.
BMW doesn't seem to want to admit they have a problem, even though over 300 cars have been stolen in March 2012 in a single UK county.

+1 on posting this video. It is hard to watch. I even asked my local dealer about this... they were shocked to hear how easy it is to steal a modern day BMW.
Here is how they clone the key fob. These guys in Bulgaria sell this reader for 8K euros. I am sure there must be some cheaper Chinees (copied) scan tools out there!
and two other interesting videos...
this car is even a one series e82
