My 328i was just Stolen!
 
My fairly 'new to me' 328i 4 door sedan was stolen from an independent BMW Shop
parking lot that I use. We filed the police report and insurance report.
The reason it was at the shop is because the expansion tank sprung a leak, so the
thief probably did not get very far before he fryed my 2.8 engine!
I have it fully insured, will it cover my engine?

Is this IndianBob aka Bob328i?

SCJon 01-22-2013 01:28 AM

It can't be. At least it's insured, I know I'd be plenty p!ssed in your spot though! Unless it is ole Indian bob, if it is then he's got to be thrilled.

If the shop had accepted your car for repair then it's their liability for it being stolen from their shop. You didn't indicate what year your car is, but even the pre-EWS cars were not easy to steal.....

anything is easy to take if you access to a flat bed wrecker or a recovery bar on the back of a pickup.

This...

Then the car will stripped for parts.

Often what happens with other makes, is a thief will take the car, strip it, and place it on the frame of the same make/model car that has a salvage title, and tell the car cheaply.
They use the VIN of the salvage car, and profit.

Who's Indian Bob?

ZeGerman 01-22-2013 09:05 AM

Interesting. If I recall correctly, IndianBob was from Sacramento, which is right next to "San Francisco Niner Country", and he drove a white 328i. Could it be?

This has got to be Indianbob. He has the same year and color 328i as Indianbob. 328iRob is very similar to bob328i. His location is similar to indianbob. Finally the most damning piece of evidence last we heard from bob328i he was taking his car to a shop to fix a leak in the cooling system, that was probably from the expansion tank. link

SCJon 01-22-2013 09:16 AM

If it is, then his dreams have come true, and our frustration continues...

I feel as though you are correct though.

Kdoherty 01-22-2013 09:17 AM

does seem eerily familiar... and I'll say this once and not mention it again, Insurance fraud ain't nothin' to fck with.

southpark11235 01-22-2013 09:33 AM

Honestly this is probably the best thing for Indianbob. The insurance company is going to give him way more money for the car than if he tried to sell it himself. So, now he can be done with e36’s and buy any else to replace it and we never have to hear from him again:D.

That thought crossed my mind when I first thought it was Indianbob, but I need some prof before a assume something like that.

We've heard him say he was done with us twice now, so don't hold you're breath! If it is him, he's the most epic troll in history. If its not him Rob is confused as hell and thinks we are all nuts.

petriej 01-22-2013 09:55 AM

Sometimes shops will leave the keys in a car on their lot. Bad idea, but it happens. If the vehicle is not recovered, someone's insurance will cover it.

P.S. OP: Come clean if you are indeed our beloved Indian Bob.

:rofl: That'd be any easy call.......

OP will surely deliver.

He always gives himself away. We must be patient...

hnaz 01-22-2013 10:20 AM

OH MY GOD! I couldn't stop laughing! Had a large belly laugh too! Now don't get me wrong, I spurt the same stuff when I am getting underneath my cars to fix something, but wow, not this bad! Plus I already knew about BM Trouble Yous before I bought my two cars. I enjoy tinkering a lot and don't mind working on one of my favorite types of BMWs. The satisfaction of it working with new parts feels euphoric. :D

IndianBob, my heart goes out to you sir. I was going to ask if you could send me your car. I will have it up and running and working great in no time. I will pay for shipping.

TheFinanceGuy 01-22-2013 10:41 AM

You guys know who this is, he's just fcuking with all of us...

epic troll...

If you want Indianbob’s car you will have to ask the world’s nice car thief for it.:rofl:

ReillyM3 01-22-2013 11:11 AM

Id say its bob just on the Op's complete lack of posting upon us noticing the similarity.

hnaz 01-22-2013 12:13 PM

Well just in case it is found and returned with the same coolant problems, I want the car. The only thing I would need is a leak down test to make sure the engine didn't overheat too long and warp the cylinder head. Worse yet, smashing the gas pedal while it is overheating instead of coasting to a stop at a safe spot.

Why did he call himself IndianBob anyways?

southpark11235 01-22-2013 12:27 PM

Indianbob already try to sell it on the forum and wanted $3,800:yikes::rofl:.

I do not know why he calls himself Indianbob. Your guess is as good as mine.

SCJon 01-22-2013 12:32 PM

Plus it would be like dating a turboslut with a neurotic father. You can never trust it, and taking it home isn't really an option either. :nono:
