    One of the first things the boy did to his for the same reasons you've described.
    are you mad? ;-)

    I'm not spending any money on it!

    Re: 20 years car development - huge leaps and small backward steps

    There is the alternative from when I ran old cars: Don't lock it.

    The car wasn't worth enough to steal, I didn't leave anything expensive in it. Occasionally I would get in the car and realise someone had been rummaging around the parcel shelf. If I locked the car, the difference would be I might find the £100 side glass smashed to steal the £30 stereo. I did once give someone a lift who locked the passenger side door when they got out. On return, that glass had been smashed to get to the stereo ignoring the other three unlocked doors Modern integrated stereos should stop that nonsense though.

    I really miss it.

    Cos in the dark I keep missing the keyhole. In fact, remote central locking has probably, globally, saved a million driver side door resprays ;-) cos my keys rub on the paint work EVERY DAY!!, and the faffing about with a bag to carry, key holes and pouring rain means that...

    I MISS REMOTE LOCKING!!
    Using a key? How archaic. I lock the car with my knee if my hands are full.
