There is in fact a computer immobilizer built-in. It's pretty hard to steal a modern BMW.

You can have the ultimate in car security installed---a LoJack.

I don't know about the '06 but with the '08, BMW Assist includes a stolen vehicle recovery service.

thanks in advance for any replies.
you can't steal it without having a copy of the key. and good luck getting a copy if you don't own the car.
