Stolen 1M

Here's a video of my 1M being stolen a few months ago at 3am. They smashed a small area of glass (No alarm went off), used a device to reprogram a key fob trough the OBD port, then unlocked the car, pushed it off the drive and gone. In 3 minutes.

BMW can't recognise a problem with their cars. I can't understand why the alarm didn't go off, and why it only took 3 minutes to steal a 43,000 car. In the west midlands alone, 300 cars were stolen like this in March 2012 alone!
