Uh, I happen to have a monaco blue 7, so if anyone out there is selling these stolen parts, PM me!!!!!

Kidding, sorta, but that does suck. No way to secure these parts other than drilling into the trunk for the spoiler. I am about to order an ACS spoiler and now you made me nervous as they are not cheap

Hey guys, thanks a lot for the support...greatly appreciated.

i had the 3M tape and also had JB weld on there...

I was in Vegas and when i got back it was late and i was pissed...so i didn't check the damages to my car. Immediately after i posted this up i called to get a police report and to check the damages out myself and i noticed that the dumb effing thief couldn't pry the alpina trunk spoiler off because of the glue! he left about 4 inches of the spoiler on my trunk! Moron broke it so it basically useless to him now. I'm glad i used the glue.

He did damage my quarter panels and my roof. I'm going in to a drive in appraisal shop tomorrow to show it to a insurance adjuster. ill let you guys know how it goes...

i hate dealing with problems with my car man...makes me want to go buy a Toyota Camry and just drive it comfortably.

The drive in the Toyota won't be as comfortable as you think.
When cornering you will always think bank and be sad or mad.

I meant mentally comfortable. lol

not worrying about giving my car to the valet, car wash, friends, family parking it anywhere without wondering about getting jacked, door sings, egged....etc

Lmaooooo....that was harsh diz

on a brighter note, I took the risk and went by a drive in all state location for a quote. I was lucky the adjusted was a cool guy. he's going to be reinbursing me for both my spoilers, re finishing my trunk painting the quarter panels and refinishing my roof cause there were scratches on there.

the roof is scary to re paint cause the shark fin is attached from the inside and in order to remove it we have to remove the head liner.

ill have to fax in some invoices so he knows how much I paid for the spoilers...this should he fun :)

Don't do it! I was just in Vegas all of last week and had a Toyota Camry rental car. It's like going from a private jet to a moped.

OP sorry to hear this - sucks.

It does make me wonder about attitudes to our cars. Over here in the UK people are generally jealous as hell of success and will do this sort of crap out of spite "if I can't have it why should you?" Douches. But in the US peeps are generally accepting and admiring of success, no? Obviously you'll have muppets wherever you live, but would you say this is about right? :dunno:

i park in my driveway...i dont have room in my garage cause i have a classic and a motorcycle...so outside is my only option :(

i'm going to get a well needed security system around my entire house. Big visible cameras...should do the trick.

You should get a cheap car cover to hide the car. Although they might end up stealing the cheap car cover too. I have an outdoor night vision camera and VHS recorder if you need one.
