Model x 90d stolen from Birmingham last night, found it and retrieved it using my mobile app, met the police at the car exactly 4.5 miles from my house. Thankfully no damage but battery was very low. They stole the key and still have it so car is now at a secure location until I can get to Tesla tomorrow.
Anyway, reason I'm putting this on is because since retrieving the car, I don't like the fact that you can actually disable the mobile app from within (luckily the scumbags mustnt have known how to do this) and also the fact that Tesla can't remotely de-activate the key that was stolen. Maybe this should be a safety feature Tesla should look at?
Just want to make people aware because although I have my car back the morning after it was stolen, someone else may not have the same happy (ish) ending. Be safe and be vigilant.
