B.M.W. Beware Mobile Weakness

New BMW Electric cars have security shortcomings that could allow thieves to pop open a victim's flash motor from a smartphone.
The i3 and i8 have an iOS app called iRemote, which is closely related to the Android and iOS Connected Drive application familiar to most BMW and Mini drivers.
iRemote allows owners to monitor battery life, potential range on a map, plus the ability to lock/unlock the car and turn on pre-heating/cooling, like the standard Connected Drive app
