How to hotwire a WRX

I'm not asking, but we discovered how. Nick and I acciently found out how to do it when we were installing stuff on my car yesterday. It's scary easy, and I'd only take a max of like 2 minutes to do. We took photos since I was already taking photos for my how to. I guess I could also make a how to on hotwiring an Impreza, but I don't know if I want that information out there that readily avaliable.

EDIT: I should have made this a poll, but I can't now. How many people think I should post the information how?

EDIT #2:

It's a lot easier than you all think. This is for EDUCATIONAL purposes ONLY. I hold no responsibility the way you use this knowledge. It's nothing you couldn't find out by tinkering on your own or reading the repair manual. Entering a car or starting up a vehicle that is not yours is AGAINST THE LAW. Well, here it goes. The images are only temporary until I need the space again.

EDIT #3: Removed. It was only a temperory thing to stir up some interesting conversation... about badgers apparently. Anyways, if you missed out and I trust you, I'll forward you the photos, otherwise, don't bother PMing me.

EDIT #4: More info removed.

+1 with Ian... Our cars are the most stolen in North America. Don't need to make it any easier.

It doesn't really matter, I have the UTEC and it's "somewhat anti-theft" feature. But, all in all, if someone wants your car bad enough, it's gone. The only thing that's going to help you is a nice alarm, and that's even up for debate. If someone was to steal my car, I don't want it back. Insurance pays it off, I get a new one.

Post it Jon.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

<------ Click to see what I'm workin' with. ;)

I would like to know but I don't want everyone else to know lol. It's really not that hard to steal a car, although I have never hotwired one so I don't know how hard that is. You guys are bringing me back to when I was like 15 with this post, I am going to go look for my toyota master key. So my little brother can't get his hands on it and get into trouble.

No real reason to be mad. I get mad when people use it against me, it is a sore spot, but joking helps me deal with it.
