Move to Florida like everyone else, you’ll be glad you did.Pass on the car, save your money and get outta dodge. California has got to be the worst place in the country, with Michigan and New York closing in fast.
Yes, i thought about it and clarified that on my follow up post.That doesn't work, that just disables the magic door handles from working, it doesn't stop anyone from spoofing your keyfob.
