Sonic is no better or worse than any other fast food joint. Except for Chik Fil A. Chik Fil A has no known equivalent. Except for maybe In & Out Burger but I'm on the east coast.

The downside to doing this, the thing that detracted me, is that you have to circumvent the fuel cutoff which means one less security measure; now thieves can just hotwire your car whereas before they wouldn't be able to drive it away after hotwiring.

disclaimer: can be bad in bad areas just like any fast food chain, but usually is good

no it's not.

American thing is not fast food. That's just what the poor fat people do, doesn't make it a precedent for the whole of American culture.

The only place having a push button starter is nice is when your on track, and go
off and kill the car, you don't have to fiddle with the key to refire the car..

So true. They gave me a gift card for having to wait ~3mins for fresh fries. Love that place.

You can't afford an E90, but you can afford to track your E46?

Have you checked out the england (uk actually) mcdonald's site?
http://www.mcdonalds.co.uk/ukhome.html
In other words, McDonalds has to have a whole separate website because there are so many McDonalds in the UK.

Let me go google maps it...

In case this map ever disappears...



Case in point.

HAHA

In N Out is awesome by the way.
I suddenly crave an In N Out burger...

BTW Texas and Utah now also have In N Out's per their website.
edit: also, according to Google Maps, there are In N Out in: Arizona, Nevada (Las Vegas), Oregon (Portland), Washington (state) and British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada).

Looks like a dead thread reviving but it was kinda 'fun mod' to me.
It would've been perfect unless my key had to be cut and planted all the time with immobilizer(for convenience and cleaner look).
If someone somehow manages to get inside my car, he can drive my M3 anywhere...but I've got alarm system activated plus I've moved to a lot safer city so no worries.

Anyway I'm satisfied with the results since I also got e90 remote working with greater remote distance along with this mod.





















And I'm missing Chick Fil A, Five guys, In N Out, etc...A LOT
