Owners of cars obviously leave their fingerprints everywhere all over the car. All it would take is for someone to find a clean, complete print, use that to copy the print for making a rubber impression, and then voila! Your M3 is now much more easily stolen.

I like the Mercedes keycard concept better. You need to keep the card in your pocket, and be within a small distance of the vehicle. No keys required. If this was used in conjunction with the fingerprint, then I would tend to think that this technology is worth it.

ated quite effectively about 1yr ago by a Japenese Scientist, somehwere in japan they had grocery stores that allowcheckout by using fingerprints (it would debit your store account or something to that effect) anyways he was able to pull a fingerprint off something, create a mold using unflavored gelatin, and then bought products using that persons id.

all in all it took him about $1 worth of supplies, and a very short amount of time (time for gelatin to harden)

Wait a few years, then think about it some more. We have looked into biometrics as a security admission policy and rejected it for a number of reasons. Email me if you would like more information. There are better ways to secure your vehicle. Hell, a good old 50's style kill switch is still one of the best when used in conjunction with the key.
