I have two Audis now and since they represent a major investment I was wondering how easy it is for someone to steal them. Granted, no cars are 100% safe. But anything short of a flatbed tow truck, I heard Audis are very hard to steal with their computerized keys. Or is it just smoke?

I would say pretty close to impossible if you have the APR tune and you use the security feature. No hot-wiring will be able to start it. Even if they steal your key the car will not start, until you enter your secret passcode. The engine will turn over, but will not start.
The other nice feature is the wheels. Those little plastic caps over the lug nuts probably provide a pretty good bit of security against someone from stealing the wheels. It's another hurdle at least.
