Mein Auto: 325i E92 Coupe
The 'fix' involves disabling the auto opening function of the windows. Thieves are using a screw driver (or similar) to force the door lock, then hold the lock in the 'open' position so all the windows lower. With care they can then access the OBD port and reprogramme a blank key from the car's memory without setting off the alarm.
