Mein Auto: 318is
STOLEN: 95 Black 325is Lexington, KY

Gang,

A friends 95 325is was stolen at her dad's house July 4 at 10pm in Lexington KY off of Paris Pike. The car had 20% tint all around, no mods and minor damage on the trunk and rear bumper. I will have VIN and interior color to add to this tomorrow. If anyone sees a car parting out let me know. Sorry if you see cross posts but I am going to try and get the word out every where.

Thanks

Recovered

The car was recovered last night 7/6 about 20 miles from stolen location. The guys who stole it took about 800 dollars worth of new kids cloths out of the trunk, badly curbed all four wheels to the point of replacement, bent front control arms, sway bar, ball joints, etc. Car ended up in ditch after expected high speed out of control chase and mow down of mail boxes which made hood look somewhat less aero. Interior has had some stock speakers removed, all cds but not the head or cd changer ???.

And UKFan4sure, yep they left the tags on the car but tore off the license plate frame that had the name of the shop that she works for.

It could have been much worse. Going to be looking for a few parts later but for now just happy to get the car back for her. Pics to follow.
