RS6 Stolen In Solihull (Mother & Baby Inside)

Post by W8PMC » Sun Jul 23, 2017 7:18 pm

Another one stolen:(

Not sure if it's a C7, so just guessing it is. West Midlands certainly a current hotbed of Audi S/RS thefts.

Fooking shocking. My son used to live 1 road back from that junction. I used to live on the estate just after that junction. And I went to school just to the left about 300 yards down. Damn.

I heard on Saturday from a work colleague that his mate in kingstanding has been targeted in his rs6 3 times in the last few months. He was actually tazered one time through the window but they still didn't get the car.
Scumbags, jealous lazy scumbags.

Another black mark against keyless. If you are in the back seat with your child, or getting something from inside the boot, the 'start' button will be live?

Hope the scum are caught

Only if the key is still in the front of the car. If you are in the rear seat with the key in your pocket the car wont start.

If you are in the rear with the engine on though then clearly they can still take the car without the key in the car.

And in fact in this case it wont have mattered or made a difference - it wasn't stolen in a car park whilst getting back to the car and putting the baby in the back - it was evidently car jacked

All these high end cars should come fitted with remote immobilisation as standard and a tracker/monitoring subscription should be a must . I feel it's the only way to stop these sort of things happening .

Another way to stop it happening, once the scum are caught, they get hung in public!!
But yes, a factory fitted tracker that's the first thing to be fitted during build would help catch the cnuts. It would take them longer to remove and hopefully catch them, then hang em.

The ECU is already designed to be co-dependent on the dashboard control module for verification on may cars. It really would be trivial to engineer the ECU to act as a tracker in conjunction with the navigation module and the phone module, with an anti-tamper verification check against the dashboard module to ensure the ECU hadn't been changed. Unless I am missing something, that would be a virtually theft-proof car as it's position could be identified worldwide at all times when the battery was connected. You would need to be a fully-fledged Audi dealership to overcome that, and even then you would need some serious workshop time to do it.

Similarly, remote shutdown doesn't seem to me to be a difficult thing to implement, especially as it could be done in a controlled fashion: for example an announcement on the dash and then a gradual reduction in maximum permitted speed over a period of five minutes so that, if it did kick in erroneously, the owner would have the chance to make a safe, controlled stop even if they were barrelling along a motorway.

All Porsche have this from the factory. Partnered with Vodafone. You can remotely track the car and set alerts based upon speed or geofence.
