STOLEN PARTS: CF E92 M3 Mirror Covers.

Some dickwad stole my OEM CF mirror covers from my car while I was at work today. Obviously only a BMW enthusiast would know that these are worth $400+ on the used market and can be popped off without any tools.

I am sure they will pop up on ebay/craigslist/forums sooner rather than later. Please don't buy them.

Thanks

I would glue them in a few spots. Any deterrent couldn't hurt. Yeah its stupid. This isn't some exposed parking lot. In fact I am pretty sure it was one of the 2 guys with modded e46 m3's that parked near me for a few months. Haven't seen their cars for a while so maybe they quit or got laid off. Came back to jack my stuff. Losers.

That just sucks! I'm so leery of nice/OEM aftermarket parts that can easily be removed.

Years...many years ago, when I had my Integra GS-R, I had my clear corner lights stolen. They were so easy to remove I could almost forsee it happening, and then of course it did, and I was so pissed. I just put the stock ambers back on, didn't want to worry about it anymore.

Nope. I had the trunk lip spoiler stolen off my old e46 though a few years back.
