|I thought they would have done better ... It was far too easy to intrude the original system. It's like a open book. It took 5 liters of Cola, few bags of rye bread and 10 hours from few water proof nerds to hack in and out. Now we can set wipers on and honk remotely :) If the beefed power steering would be controllable I could drive the car remotely.|
