My M3 was stolen :(

Guys I feel heart broken. My 2017 ZCP in mineral white was stolen this morning from outside my house.

Full carbon kit was ordered just last week and on the way. And now car is gone.

Hold me brahs. Luckily no one was hurt as the car was some how taken without the keys in the middle of the night. I assume they must have pushed the car down the street before starting it up as no one heard a peep.

When you all drive your Ms today think of all the brothers/sisters out there who are not as lucky. And then think of all those who don't have the luxuries we have in life and how lucky we are to be able to enjoy such things brahs.

I am still in a state of shock so I apologise if this thread makes no sense

Have you tried contacting BMW Assist/Connected Drive? I'm sure either BMW or law enforcement can find it relatively quickly, unless it went to a chop shop.

Not trying to come off as unsympathetic or anything, but it reads like you gave up already. Can't guarantee condition obviously, but there's license plates on it and GPS baked into the damn thing. Can't be that hard to find it.

I checked the app and it was showing 10miles away in a tiny B road village. I drove there knocked on some doors and nothing. When I called BMW connected they told me "that just shows that last stationary location and its very easy to turn the GPS off" Wtf???

I am hopeful but from how things work in London this is probably said in jest but not far from the truth.

As for already having given up its my 4th M car. I loved the car and would rather have this just be a bad dream but its not and my car is gone.

They probably did it like this:

Sorry to hear about the theft. Hopefully your insurance will cover the full value and you'll be able to get a replacement M3 in short order.

I called the police and all they have told me so far is that my car has been marked as stolen. So far as far as they are aware no one has reported it abandoned anywhere.

I have been on calls on and off with my insurance since this morning. I really hope no one else has to goes through this. I am shocked how easily someone has taken a possession so close to my heart and something I hold dear.

I'm sure there is a way to track the vehicle with GPS enabled in the BMW?

Oh no thatís terrible!

I sincerely hope you do not get your car back because I donít think you would want something thatís been stolen and driven in a crazy manner.

I also hope you have good insurance and get a nice replacement. Hang in there luckily nothing happened to you or your family.

If the police recovered it, I am not sure I'd want it back after some yahoos trashed and abused it. Yeah, it's just a piece of iron, but I have a real emotional attachment to my M3.

That sucks, hopefully they find out who did it and prosecute them. Hope your insurance gets you a new M because I wouldn't want that one back. There's no telling what is being done to it right now.

OP hope you get insurance payout and find another.

I had this idea when I was younger.

When you lock the car it would activate the memory seat.

With modifications the seat would slide all the way up against the steering wheel.

Then the track would lock.

You can't drive the car if you can't sit in the seat.

Towing would be the only option.

Don't steal my idea💫
