Exactly. . . if the car is locked and the motion sensor is on, why can't the OBD port itself trigger an alarm? Would an honest mechanic ever ever have a legitimate reason to access the OBD and read codes with the car doors closed and locked? I doubt it. It would seem that this whole mess could be corrected with a firmware update.

300 BMW's in 1 county in 1 month? OUCH.

This situation is begging for a sting operation.
