In Reviews they're never shown as high risk but I bought a Faraday bag and steering wheel lock just in case

The faraday bags are definitely worth getting  less than £10 for 2.

You still have to remove the key from the bag to operate the door locks and run the car.

If you're not bothered about using the system, some Mazdas can have their keyless systems disabled (via the dealership).
