    Lightbulb Vehicle entry without keys or FOB (ex. Keys locked in car)

    I found this while I was searching the internet for cool stuff to put in my car. http://www.taplock.com/ Has anybody tried this? I figured this would be a nice last resort if I lock my keys in the car and if my carpc looses power.

    Looks cool. Great for the those days when you go skiiing, and don't want to worry about your keys.

    That's nice, but still, I woudn't keep my keys in the car, even if I'd go swimming . (on a side note).

    I'd like a solution like that, which could eliminate the keys totally, and I mean here the engine should start without the key.

    Key's are so... 20th century. Cars should use number pads or thumbprint recognition or something by now. I get sick of carrying keys.

    Well I do have a card, and start the engine with the press of a button...

    The Megane II has a card, like this one. The alarm functions are on it (sure, if you pay an extra 200E) and you can open/close the doors with them.


    On the lower left part of the dash there is a slot for the card. Insert the card (this acts like the last level ingnition switch), press the button above it, and you start the engine. It starts only with the clutch pressed.





    Ofcourse, this is nice, but I'd rather have nothing at all, I mean something similar to this card, but for example, you approch the car, the doors open bythem selves without any press of the button, you eneter the car, press the start button, and the engine starts. All this with the card in your pocket. Now that will be nice. This feature I've only seen on the new S class from Mercedes...

    It's available on the new Lexus GS430 here in the states.


    As for the Megane. How do you like it. Which version of the, I think it is like 100 versions, do you have. The interior is nice, but, that trunk/boot, that just got to me when I first saw it, and unfortunately, not in a good way.
