That what I thought, until I realized that you can't lock the car if the key is still in the car. So the cars either had some sort of remote start requiring a transponder in the dash or the valet key was used to drive off with them.

In our e46's, I can bypass the ignition and start my car, I can even bypass the gear selector lock to put the car in any gear. I imagine that twisting the steering wheel hard enough would break the steering lock.

Does he leave the house keys in his front door as well and go to sleep?
