@blueblood, correct its not just an issue with JLG vehicles...

Figures reported by The Guardian newspaper reveal that almost 300 Range Rover Evoques and Range Rover Sports were stolen between January and July of this year, as well as 63 BMW X5 and 3-series models.

Thieves are understood to be targeting these vehicles both because of their popularity in Europe and because of their keyless ignition systems, which can be ‘hacked’ by using a re-programmed key to gain access to the car.
Whats interesting is the article points to demand from eastern europe as fuelling the spree, which if you ask me seems slightly spurious.
