Humm... I wonder why cars built pre-Sept '11 would be more vulnerable? I thought it was ALL bmw's that could have their key fob "cloned". ???
pre-September at risk, after September is fine, what about September '11 build cars. Is the BMW UK press guy just sloppy by not saying "from September", or ... Perhaps only really of interest to owners of September 2011 build cars.
