Just for the sake of my own curiosity, any of you computer nerds want to check to see if the IP address is the same?

That's what it seems. The part I don't quite understand is why he has so many screen names. I mean, it's not like all of them have been banned.

Maybe, but if that was the case, I'd probably be clever enough to not list the same color, year, and model of car, plus the same (or similar) location, and a scarcely different screen name. That's what I don't understand. If he's trying to get a fresh start, then he's not exactly going about it in the most effective way. And isn't there a limit to how many accounts you can open from one IP, or is there a way around that?

But if it's IndianBob, and he had his car intentionally "stolen", that's pretty heavy stuff. On the flip-side, if it's IndianBob and his car was actually stolen, it unanimously confirms that he has the absolute worst luck in the universe when it comes to his E36. Either way, it's a major fail.

Hey Guys, he found his car... oddly enough look what was stolen out of it... since the expansion tank and radiator had no coolant in it, I guess he is getting a new engine and only pay a small deductible.

This smells very fishy to me...

oh yeah this reeks of an inside job

OP leaves a key under the seat conveniently with the window ajar so that the "thief" can grab a tank of fuel, a useless OEM tool kit and a 6 disk changer... yet leave the precious engine and differential and body panels unmolested. I'll believe that when me sh!t turns purple and smells like rainbow sherbet.

If the insurance company ever finds out that he left his key underneath the seat and that's how it was stolen, they'll most likely deny his claim.

It all sounds so absurd.

Yeah, but it's not a question of IF they will be, just a matter of WHEN.

I have it fully insured, will it cover my engine?
It should be covered by the shop. Your insurance will go after them. Same thing happened to one of my friends. He had his car at the shop and they stole it from there. The shop end up having to go through their insurance to help pay for the damages done to the car. I wouldn't worry about it much. Hopefully everything works out fine for you. Good luck.
