That is absolutely insane. Keep a lookout on Craigslist and eBay and see if anything shows up in those areas

Sorry for your loss. I'm guessing your car didnt have the BMW wheel locks? Hope the damn thieves die a slow painful death. For the people that have wheel locks how much harder/longer do u think it would have taken for the damn thieves to take them?

Hold up brb this might make you feel better..........:y ikes:!
Ok I'm back dude this same thing had happen to my buddies car last year at a hotel in Florida (forgot the name) to spent the night from a cruise and start fresh to drive back in the morning to ATL. He had 24" on his Chrysler 300. His was under the lights right in front of a busy road If you can get documentation about this happening many times in the past you might have a thin chance of suing but like I said thin bcz Im sure they have on file somewhere that they are not responsible. GOOD LUCK! Look at it like this......... At least they left the car for you

You should park closer to the curb or as close to a wall as possible to completely block off one side. The way you were parked allowed access for the jack to go under the car.

Attention.. Wheels stolen!! At Sheraton Suites

Bro i feel for you. I had a jeep grand cherokee with 22 chrome rims. I parked it in front of my parents... Nxt morning truck was gone.. My inlaw has a 01 330i vert he spent +$2000 on his bbs rims two months later the tims were gone and was left in bricks.

He bought another set. Again +$2000 but bought wheel locks. Same thieves came back they couldnt take the rims so they punctured all 4 tires and scratched his car.

****s getting real now a days stay alerted and on your toes. Ive caught ppl wandering around my 03 325ci vert with 19 staggered rims. Luckly my car is garaged kept and have a big ass gate infront of my house.

This could happen any where actually. Thieves go into better neighborhoods because there are "better" finds.
