Let me know if anyone sees these hot the market they are iconz830z -can't imagine a ton of these floating around. Alright I doubt it would do any good -hopefully insurance will cover
Sorry to hear bro. I can so relate. Had my entire car stolen outside my house years ago so now my cars remain in the garage but whats worse in Portland Oregon they had thieves doing the remote thing to get into your garage. You are not safe anywhere.

Hope they catch them!

The same thing happened to me 3 weeks ago
and the alarm didn't go off, it was left on bricks like yours
but the thieves in the UK are more caring it was not left
resting on the discs, it had BMW lock nuts which they took with them.

Anyway it now has two sets of locks RAD and schnitzer
plus a viper alarm, the guy who fitted it has a M3 E92 himself
he knows his stuff have a look on you tube
i know he is in the UK but it might help?

Buy the way my BMW insurance paid the bill which was
over 6000.00 for the wheels and tyres and all the bits and pieces.

wow that sucks! you give up control when you've got to travel and can't guarantee garage space, just another data point justifying high quality wheel locks.

I recently went away to a beach rental for the weekend with the guys, decided to take my motorcycle to guarantee garage space for this exact reason.

Hope you get your $$ from insurance and there is no damage..

Just to let you guys know in case you are interested
the Rad wheel locks locks are German but i had a problem
getting them the UK so ordered them from the USA
from what i looked at i think they are as good as you can get.

www.RADUSADirect.com
US site

No a small mistake i didn't order them form the USA after all i got from Canada

Wheel locks are absolutely worthless to the professional wheel thief: they are most easy to break-off. Take it from a guy whose had his entire car, wheels, and various parts stolen before. There is NO freaking way I'd EVER park an M3 outside!!!!
Sorry about your loss, but then again just think how you'd feel if the entire car were gone?
