This is on every car forum out there. It seems to vary from exact car to car, without regard to manufacturer nor model, and some just seem to come out "sweet".
I can do about a hundred feet with my Z.
I had a J30 Infiniti (sigh) whose remote would work two-hundred feet, from inside a building, while on that forum others were asking how to get better range.
I've never seen a solution posted.
And the meat antenna works- press the remote against your thigh, or under your chin, and it's good for about another fifty feet. I've still not found what I'd call a worthwhile explanation for why, nor how you could otherwise extend the range. Even Mythbusters took it on, and didn't really find a good reason for it to work.
