    ... maybe it simply transformed & walked off the lot?

    Having worked at dealerships, this is more common than you'd think. Even with the smart keys.

    PS: Just because the dealership has 2 remotes for the car doesn't mean they go to that car. They all look the same. I could go test drive it, swap out my own remote (I want to say $230) for one that goes with the vehicle, then just come back to get the car later. Throw on my own plate, and as long as I don't get pulled over, I'm golden.

    Listening to the news out of Boston tonight the Cops are thinking the vehicle is already on its way out of the country. Not that familiar with Range Rover but I thought that was a British car and wouldn't it have been easier and cheaper to snatch one off a car lot in Britain? Just doesn't add up.

    I believe we have less stringent export laws. Exporters are gonna do whatever is easiest to get it to the Middle East or Africa (where 90% of those cars go) where the manufacturer doesn't sell the cars. Porsche, Cadillac, etc. all have similar processes in place to prevent sales to known exporters. It's like the No Fly list and list of known terrorists for the car business.

    My guess is that they'll find the culprit from the list of people to have test driven that car. And they're probably on the list of exporters.

    I seriously did not know that and I have learned something tonight...and that makes a lot of sense now that I know the reasoning behind it. Thanks.
