well i know we can smash the steering wheel part, and then smash the ingiton thingy, and start it with a screwdriver, but that is last resort

I dont know how to hotwire one, but I think that you can screw-driver start it by simply drilling out the tumbler in the ignition keyhole. It´s a pretty simple mod from the tutorials I´ve seen.

And I know you said you didnt want to screwdriver start it, but you don´t need to "smash" things this way...

BMW headlights... how sweet is that?

I think you can hammer the screwdriver in the igniton and crank it that way. or just brake the tumblers. My EGT can start with a screwdriver. But yes you can cross the igniton wires that works too.

the easiest way to start and drive the car is to leave the ignition switch attached, just take it apart and pull the tumblers out. put it back together and use anything to turn it. If you just cross a ground and the run wire, then take the crank wire and touch a ground with it the car will start and run but the steering lock will still be engaged. easiest way around that is to break the lock.

*opens up car-theft handbook*

Rip off the peice of trim under the steering wheel. Inspect the ignition wires on the ignition switch tumbler. Decide which ones are grounds, which ones are hot. Now, since you turn the tumbler clockwise to start the car, the wire attached furthest clockwise along the tumbler should be the starter. The ones before it should be the run wires. Rip the wires out, twist the exposed wire from the run wires and check to make sure that the test lights come on in the dash. Now, try grounding the start wire to the metal frame under the steering wheel. If nothing happens, touch the start wire to a hot wire.

Now, don´t go stealing any cars.. :-Y It´s not as easy as it sounds.
