There will always be some tech savvy person who will get past security. The Enigma machine comes to mind and that was a brilliant security messaging system, overcome by boffins at Bletchley Park.
But not in 30 seconds 😂
No, Granted but the computers of the day took up massive floor space. Look what a mobile phone can do today and it's size :lol: I used to program the Univac 1004 which was similar to those on the Apollo space missions and that in the 60's took up a full room with another occupied with punch card and verifier machines. Each program was on a different program board made up of hundreds of wires. OK 60 years later something as small as a phone can do more. The wizz kids of electronics can overcome any obstacles very easily and no doubt some tech savvy boffin has found a way around JLR security. I soon gained experience of getting into cars with the wrong key in the 70's purely by accident. At that time if I had been a tea leaf I could have taken anything I fancied. That was very very low tech, but so easily overcome. :geek: :lol: :lol:

Tech can be as secure as the makers want it to be. Look at the hassle the FBI had a few years ago to unlock Apple devices!

Oh for something as simple as a distributor rotor arm...
Lurking here for information but planning on buying new XE R-Dynamic SE P250 some time next year.

Based on my experience with a scroggy little Suzuki 120 motorbike, back when the world was young, if the thieving toerag can't start it easily, it is likely to end with a visit from Sam and his mates, in their bright red lorry :evil:

But at least the insurance assessor couldn't see the bodge job holding the plastic headlight shell together, because it had melted!

I suppose that if you were to leave your vehicle for a while would be to remove the starter motor fuse. Fitting your own wheel clamp maybe an alternative .

...yes, I was thinking the same, a simple disable like removing a fuse would do it.

Yes, I had a quick look through my handbook and there doesn't seem to be many things to be done . My old Vauxhall immobilizer relied on cutting out the fuel pump relay . I couldn't see any mention of a fuel pump .
Electric vehicles must be even harder to mobilise.

According to the wiring diagram I have, RF28 (30A) in the rear junction box, feeds the fuel pump relay & pump. Bear in mind this'll probably throw a code if the ignition is on when fuse out/blown.

I think you can avoid throwing a code by first locking the car, then just opening the boot to get to the fusebox. This doesn't open the doors, which stay locked, and the car returns to its alarmed status when you close the boot again.
I did this when I pulled fuse 24 to force a re-boot of the telematics module, and got no codes generated.
