slashed tire

Parked my car at a garage this evening to go see a piano concert in Bethesda, MD; came back and turned on the car and the TPMS lights came on; looked at the passenger side tire and it was flat; some ass decided to slash my tire???!!!

People suck..........filed a police report and BMW took care of the tow

Haters gonna hate............

That sucks, hopefully they went on to get food poisoning later in the night. I usually think I'm pretty safe in a garage, but I guess I am kidding myself. Probably some jealous ass hat.

Sorry to hear this. My own car (not the M3) was keyed once parked on the street of downtown and it wasn't even any eye catching ride. Some people just don't ever deserve owning nice things so they come out to damage others'.

Worse I have seen was back in high school. An open top NSX parked in a small shopping mall nearby and a group of kids went by and pouring their drinks(god knows what those are) into the car. That gave me the idea to never have the top down when parked if I ever own a convertible.

What do slashed tires look like? What do people use to slash tires?

This is why we can't have nice things.

the rear tires were pretty bad....probably only had 2k miles left on the set so i guess it works out.......its funny; that day i washed the car and thought to myself i would probably need a new set of tires soon.......would have been better if he had slashed all 4 for insurance purposes

Sorry to hear that, there are a bunch of assholes out there in the world that are just plain unhappy with their lives and want to make others miserable. Just be happy it wasn't keyed, at least you can replace the tire for a lower cost versus paint.

Sorry to hear that OP.

Lucky that the bastard stuck only with the tires. It could've been a lot worse.

Those are the people that blame us for their low economy status. Yeah I came from there, but I worked my ass during the night, and studied during the day to become an RN.
People have no morals, and it's getting worse.
I am sorry to hear about your ordeal.

When I got a nail in sidewall of front tire the dealer agreed to match Tire Rack price. I note that Tire Rack price for all four is $1602 (Michelin PS2 19" - front & back prices vary). So, your dealer was in fact matching Tire Rack!

OP, sorry to hear that. Some people are just sad, worthless bastards. I haven't had anyone vandalize my M3 yet, although there was a guy in a 335 several months ago that drove up on my passenger side and spit on my car. I just laughed at him and then detailed the whole car once I got home.

They are ok at best. Most forum members are disappointed with them. 90% of people run the Pilot Sport or Pilot Super Sport when they have a choice.

Had a set on my previous car (335i), they were terrible. Ditched them after a thousand miles and went back to summer Michelin.
