This type of key adds more protection to your vehicle because it is nearly impossible to start one without that specific key.
The car manufacturers have gone one step further in the theft-deterrent systems that are placed on the transponder keys. Audi and Volkswagen require that a PIN be gotten before the key can be replaced. BMWs have ten transponder codes programmed into their keys, and roll through them. BMWs will also immobilize your vehicle to prevent it from running in the absence of the key. All of them prevent key blanks from being distributed to anyone except trained locksmiths and dealers.
