From what I've seen on the internet, I've surmised that lock picking is a Dutch national past-time. Not surprising, since the NL is the core of the international hacking community.

So are they essentially saying that there are only 65,536 (4^8) possible BMW lock combinations and that because of sloppy tolerance, it's really only 256 (2^8) combinations???

Soooo, to extrapolate that, my key can open 1 out of every 256 BMWs that have the same style key??????

If so, YIKES!
