Re: No second hand market

Notwithstanding the fact that an ICE vehicle from 1967 with a remote start kit fitted and thermostatic air con can do that, my old Humber Sceptre from 63 could do it with the right upgrades... Although probably not as accurately..

And there is also the fact that technically what your car just did might have invalidated your insurance (on the basis you are not allowed to leave a running vehicle unattended, granted electric is a grey area in this case) it certainly would if a remote start facility caused an accident.. A start while in gear for example.. Or someone getting into the car as shouldn't.
