    No rocket science here

    Yes - the car can be stolen without the key. If the thief knows what to do and has the right tools anything is possible

    Or perhaps asking how to steal a car without using a key...

    No offence intended mate but always a possibility someone will post "oh it's easy you just have to do this, this and this..."

    Just drag it onto a flat bed cant ya? A mate got a twintop nicked by that... It was on a few security cameras on the back of the flat bed going through Stoke, 100 mile away from where it was nicked. God knows where that went, never heard anything since and it was about 6 months ago.

    Then take it wer ever you want quiet, a barn or somethin and set all the alarms off you want trying to get it started.

    Just show them your key to show it wasnt used.

    This. If your car can be towed away without the keys then it can be stolen without the keys. Unless they did some checks on the burnt out car which showed that it hadn't been tampered with and had been driven away with the keys. Don't know how possible this is mechanically though? Might be the insurer trying to pull a quick one.

    There is ways of starting a car without the keys and also ways of by passing certain car alarms but wont be posting it on here nor will i be pm'ing people how to do so please dont ask.

    I think insurance companys will be checking all claims out more in depth due to the current climate as people who are strapt for cash will be doing dodgy claims to get some cash quick.

    The only way you can take a new Astra is with the keys Good One!

    So why is it, I have recovered stolen ones where the window has been put through in order to drive it away
