i own a 2000 audi s4, and i am complaining about the inadequacy of the anti-theft system. please see the following link: http://www.nicb.org/public/newsroom/whereismycar/top25bystate.cfm#nj the audi s4 is #25 on the most-stolen-car list in nj, based on quantity alone. to show the severity of the situation, let me put this into perspective: total annual production quantities: audi s4: ~6000 toyota camry: ~300,000 honda accord: ~250,000 ford escort: ~150,000 there are less than 4% the number of s4's on the road than camrys, accords, and escorts! yet, based on quantity (not percentage) of stolen cars, the s4 is #25. if the list portrayed # of stolen vehicles as a percentage of # of vehicles produced, then surely the s4 would be at the top of this list and probably atop the list of several other states as well! this is a serious situation that must be dealt with. keep in mind that audi/vw decided to not place an immobilizer in these cars due to cost savings purposes. they had the technology, as it is available in the 99-up vw jetta. this car is simply a high risk automobile to own because of audi's blatant disregard for the inadequacy of the anti-theft system. it literally only requires two tools and 2 minutes to break into the car, disable the alarm, and engage the ignition switch....done. scary! *jb
