RE: MB's theft proof?
Answer to Atty:
Yes, there are several.
If you want more details, you would have to PM me.
On a W201, I can say, look at that bird. When the owner says, where, and turn around, it's open.
Some new cars are so difficult to get into, that it's frightening. You can use them as cages.
Do the death-trap test. Lock yourself in with the remote control. Try getting out. If you can't, you own a death-trap. The very least you should do then, is to get a good glass breaker to keep in the car.
Imagine a new VW or BMW, kids locked in the car because of electrical fault, poisonous smoke, no window to roll down, nothing. It's insane to have such a car.
In a Benz, I think you are quite safe. At least with the normal models. I obviously haven't tried to open an SLR, or armoured ones.
