Wheels stolen off M6 at dealer

UPDATE: I was at the dealership today and I found out the thieves came back the next night and tried stealing the 20"s off the X5. Cops rolled by and they ran. They had some of the wheels off (3 of them?) and the car lights taped up again, and took them into the nearby woods. Cops used infrared and dogs and caught some of the thieves. The dealership still hasn't gotten the M6 wheels back but apparently the guys caught (lookout was caught for sure) have done this several times in the past.

I was at my BMW dealership today when I spotted this M6 on blocks with its wheels stolen.





This just has me really pissed off. Urg. My '95 525i just got declared total because some asshat hit my driver's side door pulling out of a gas station; and that $3800 damage got a car I love totaled. And here, some douche just stole $3000-$5000 in tires+wheels. And the clown nose was blinking inside!

The car's VIN: WBSEK93568CY80006. Look for a discount soon?

ARGH! Duct tape on the paint! I hope they catch the guys who did it, cut off their fingers, deep fry the fingers and make them eat them. Duct tape on the paint... what has the world come too... Oh! the wheels are gone too!

I kind of wonder if that M6 is now gonna have a salvage title. If the wheels are stolen off the car and the car is left on blocks, does that mean it's stolen for title purposes?

I wouldn't want to buy it after that. It can't be good for a car to sit on two pieces of wood for any period of time.

Well I guess this won't be part of the drive off the lot sale!


On a serious note, this car could potentially be had at a very deep discount. I doubt it has much if any damage from sitting on the wood.

Oh and I just realized that they taped the lights so nobody could see the alarm going off. Very smart.

I think the alarm only goes off if it senses movement inside...not sure though. It can't be too useful it BMW opted not to include it in the 335i...that or BMW is being cheap...

So what's the point of having an OEM alarm again?

My assumption was so that if those lights flash when the alarm goes off, to mask the flashing and not let people see the flashing on the highway.

This is terrible. Surprised that this happened as it appears that the M6 was parked within line of sight to a very busy Route 9. What surprises me is the idiots that took the wheels do not know the Freehold police department motto of shoot first, ask questions......

Now all the upscale BMWs at Freehold will be parked behind the chain linked fences.

I am pissed!

Yeah, I was talking to the Freehold cop at the scene and he was trying to find in his computer a report of this as he thought the dealer already knew.

I told him no way, especially with the headlights taped and it sitting on wooden blocks...

Interesting that the Freehold LEO thought that this was previously reported. Did he mention if this is an isolated incident or is becoming a more frequent problem on Route 9. I believe that the Benz dealership had a problem not so long ago. Unfortunate as I often worry about my car when it is in for service at Freehold BMW. I do not have an M6 but to me my little ol 328xi is pretty special.


Interesting that at one time Freehold use to put wheel locks on all its premium cars. The had it as a dealer add on suplement to the window sticker. They had not done that for a long time and I suspect they will going forward.

He told me that he sits in the lot all the time and this has never happened. He did say that he expects this to happen more often now that the economy has tanked.

Nice guy. Nice laptops they get in the cop cars...beautiful red-backlit keyboard.

Wow can't believe there are lowlife's that would sink that low. I would hope/assume that they have some sort of surveillance system outside the dealership?

And Sagar, what's up with people not paying attention and totaling your cars? Want to borrow my car and get me out of my lease early?
