Well thatís it then. Every Renault must be crap.

I've had maybe 3-4 over the past couple of years as hire cars. Bit plasticky inside and styling wasn't for me, but no better or worse than any other car at their respective price points.

Keep your keys in a faraday cage cum key cabinet.  These devices are very easy to build and have some serious range to them.  Some that I have seen in tests have been able to reach in to a large car park form inside the supermarket.

And they're extremely accessible, too. How does $22 sound? (old article, you'll have seen it already, but others might not) https://www.wired.com/2017/04/just-pair-11-radio-gadgets-can-steal-car/

So potentially Lord Opti could be walking away from his car in the car park at Waitrose, and someone nearby could scan the key in his pocket and have away with the Jag!  ::)

We do use Waitrose. :)

My wifeís captur has this keyless entry, do you think I should take measures to protect it from high tech theives?  ;D ;D
It,s a Renault, not worth protecting. ;D Did i say i hated Renaults? :P
Quite right, Ron. Give us a sixteen year old vauxhall any day.  ;D
The only Renault i have ever driven (hired) broke down after 20 miles. Never been let down by my Omegas in over 10 years. Going to Daventry on Friday, hope i havn,t jinxed it. ;D
Well thatís it then. Every Renault must be crap.

Sarcastic old bugger. ;D

A sure sign of being lower middle class, financially comfortable and left leaning.  :y ;D

I've never understood the difference between lower middle class, middle class, and upper middle class. :)

Perhaps you could enlighten me, Mr Bitz. ;)

I think it's whether you shop in Waitrose, Marks & Spencer or Harrods..

Don't ask me, I'm from the underclass. Even working class people avoid me.  :)

Well, I often use Lidl or Aldi so that must make me lower working class.

It's all balls. :)

This requires a caustic response.......something an elderly scouse reprobate would be good at. :)

Itís not him they avoid, I mean, who wouldnít want to be in the company of an arthritic Irish immigrant. No...itís the smell of his car that keeps them at bay.  :)
