A taster from the article....

A gang of car thieves who stole 30 expensive vehicles - including George Michael's £57,000 Mercedes - from homes across London, Essex and the Continent is facing years in jail today.

The gang made at least £1.5million by pretending to be genuine owners and duping car dealerships into handing over replacement keys.

They stole the singer's Mercedes S350 from outside his Hampstead home after travelling to a dealership in Holland pretending to be him and producing false documents before being handed replacement keys.

I live in New Hamphshire and just bought a used 99 230 SLK. The car only came with 1 key. In order to get a replacement, I had to provide them with a registeration, a copy of my drivers license and my first borns name..... It only took 3 days to get the key. Worked great and was cheap. $30.00. Not a regular switch blade just a Valet key.
