Damn! I hope nothing happens with that..
But even if they made a copy of his key, wouldn't they need the chip to get the car started?

apparently subarus are very easy to start w/out a key, the key would most likely be used to just open the door w/out damage.. but also i hear there are readers to pull the code.. Also if they snagged the vin, they could walk in with a "faulty" key and probably have it programmed for the correct code to start the car.

Makes me think twice about my next car purchase.. Luckly I live 50 miles south of where all of this is happening.

Do remember it is within your rights to drive the speedlimit to a public place, or to the trooper barracks. It is also within your rights to ask for the officer's full name and badge number. Also within your rights to call the police and ask for a marked vehicle to come out if you are the least bit uncomfortable.

Edit: I had something similar happen to me when I first got my license. Some nut job flashing ihs 'badge' out the window to me and shouting. I told him, he isn't a cop and to go scratch. He kept on yelling and I just rolled my window up and drove away.
