    what do you mean by "advanced car key" ?

    like keyless entry and start?

    would be a massive job because of the immobliser as you'd have to find a way of making the ECU think the key is in, and only real way of doing that would be to make it think it is all the time, therefore making it very easy to steal,

    iirc the people i have known to put in a "start" button still need to put the key in the ignition for the above reason.

    no but im sure those cars are programmed to look for a immobilser code sent wirelessly rather than from an actual key,

    BUT...you have to bear in mind my knowledge on this is the same level as my knowledge of nuclear physics so if i was you id await a more educated reply

    The BMW's and MERC's i've come accross still have a key you insert, it just doesn;t have a blade. Likewise the Renaults have a card where the starting signal is read from it. Only one I can think of at the moment that is totally keyless is the VXR's

    Anythings possible in wiring this stuff up, just need the brains and electrical know how to do it. Wouldn;t be something i'd try to do though
