Note that you're not disabling the alarm--the immobilizer still will function properly, if a lock is popped it will still go off just as intended, etc. Just the tilt sensor/interior motion sensor is disabled.

Think of it like a home alarm system with an away/stay mode.

Any ideas on what wheels to go with next?

After going forged its going to be hard to step back down, but i was possibly considering just getting some OEM ZCPs and then using the rest for performance

Saw this post and bought locking lugs at lunch from BMW! Sorry to see this op hope they find these ass clowns.

Really glad to see it will work out for you! Would still love to see proper justice served to the assholes that took your wheels though, haha.

It might not be strongly beneficial for him to outfit his parent's house with video surveillance since he was merely visiting them when this occurred.

That's gotta be a sickening thing to wake up to. I'm glad that at least it's all getting covered.

Wow. This still happens? I remember in the 90s it used to happen all the time but I haven't seen it in a long time. Did it damage your brakes sitting on blocks?
