As far as I know the F20 isn't as easy to take via the OBD2 port. BMW have a fix for cars of model years 2007-2011 and the F20 came out late 2011 so would be model year 2012.
In the UK dealers are recoding to get around this problem on request, but the publicity that led to that decision went worldwide.
For current models I'd suspect key theft is the main issue but it would be interesting to see those figures broken down into the different variants and ages to see what is actually being stolen.
