Unbelievable...

Hey

I bought some BMW OEM logo valve stem caps for my 325i 18 inch wheels as they were only $18 so I thought why not. I have had them for about 10 months and went to wash the car today and some low life scum has taken them - all four!! How desperate can you be to steal some bloody valve caps off a car???

I tell you some humans never cease to amaze with their preparedness to take what isn't theirs and truly not give a shit about it. Society has gone to the dogs when they take four little bits of coloured plastic off your car.

And yes, to fight back I bought some moreÖ


Very, very sad day for the people of Perth....

Haha that's just a pain in the ass. I'd be more worried that they've let the tyres down a bit. Nothing worse than driving along the freeway at 110 with flat(ish) tyres.

Count urself lucky it wasnt a broken window. This turned out to be a f**king nightmare.


Cheers
Dan

Hey Dan

OMG - is that your car? My problem seems kind of insignificant now. I hope your damage didnít go past just a broken widow. I am sorry to see this has happened to you. Have you got it fixed?

someone did that to my 5 series back in 1999. I left my mobile in the car and they put their foot through the side window. I was still finding glass in the car for the next 6 months.
