      There's your goddamn parking brake!

      Seriously though, ever since I came home one day to find my neighbors 911 in my parents flower bed a few years ago, I always leave it in gear and pull the handbrake. Even with my dsg I set the brake.

      I'm curious, if you leave your car in gear (without the e-brake), and someone smacks into the back of your car hard enough, could it bump start the car and away it goes?

      Lol no. The ignition would need to be on for the car to run. Otherwise people would have an easy time stealing cars, wouldn't they?

      If the key isn't in the on position, the spark plugs won't fire, fuel pump won't supply fuel, etc.
