Are there any cars with keyless entry, where the keyless entry facility can be disabled? So I can use a remote fob and press a button to unlock instead. Faraday cages for keys aren't sufficient for me.
It's very dependent on the car. Some offer this function, like double-clicking the button, but other models don't. You can check your manual to find out, but it doesn't sound like you have the car yet - so it'd be a good idea to ask your dealer when you view a car. But there are also various ways to make sure your car is more secure, excluding signal blocking bags. Physical solutions like Diskloks and Stoplocks are popular, or a more extensive solution like a driveway pole that can be locked/unlocked with a key. There are also pricier systems like the Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser, which secures your car from key cloning, hacking and even key theft. The Ghost uses the buttons in your vehicle, like those on the steering wheel, doors and centre console, to allow you to make a unique PIN sequence that must be entered in order to start the car. There's also an iPhone app that connects to your vehicle and allows you to get in and drive without having to enter the PIN.
