Thats why I´m not joking. Feels really strange to come out of the cinema and find a silver SLK in the slot you parked your blue bimmer. At first you doubt yourself and your memory till you come to terms with the fact that it´s gone. Then you check wether it´s been towed and when you hear no, it hits yours truly.ljh824 said:April fools was the other day.
GROUP HUG!tierfreund said:My beloved 2002 330CI SMG was stolen in front of the local cinema on Saturday eve.
Fellas I need a group hug from the BMW-loving crowd
Unfortunately LoJack is not all that is advertised to be. The system basically works by emitting a radio signal when the car is stolen. This signal can be tracked only by police agencies that have signed up with LoJack. The problem is that you do no have 100% geographical coverage. The car could be taken into a jurisdiction where LoJack is not tracked by the local police.amt7565 said:.....
So how did the theives steal this car? What are some of the options they might have employed?
Anyone use Lo-jack? Is that helpful?
No, I wouldn't count on BMW Assist for tracking. As the antenna is in the shark fin, any thief with half a brain will rip off the shark fin. Voila, no more tracking.LDV330i said:Now that BMW Assist has enhanced its services by providing car tracking that would be the way to go. BMW Assist and OnCall track cars though satellites via GPS so you can get a lot more coverage, though there is no signal if the car in a parking garagee, tunnel. etc.
That´s what the police said what probably did happen. Of course I didn´t leave the keys anywhere near the car.marcelgood said:How did this happen? Did you have a key in your car. It seems to be hard to imagine that somebody pulled up with a flat bed and loaded up your car in front of the cinema.
