It will be impressive when they can do it remotely... without having prior access to the car.

I fail to see what is amazing about disassembling then rewiring a car that has built-in self control. This all could have been done with 50's technology.P.S. this is why these high tech cars blow.

#3 i think in a few years time they will be able to come in wirelessly through a gps or other wireless device (maybe even a phone connected via bluetooth) . the scary thing is there is no security whatsoever on these modern ECU's and as soon as someone has access they can control everything!

Well duh. If you take something apart and can change something, you... change something. How surprising!
