So agrevated right now I can barely type. Went to go grab lunch this afternoon and as I am walking up to my car I notice that it is sitting really low. Then I spot a wheel bolt on the ground by my back wheel. I pick it up and check out my wheel and all of the bolts are missing and the brakes are sitting on the inside hub of the wheel. Look at the other three wheels... same thing. WTF!! Why are people suck scum bag @$$holes??

Sorry... just needed to vent!



But now I have a good idea of what my car would look like slammed.

They just removed the bolts and the car dropped?

Yeap... all the bolts were gone. I only found two bolts so I am not sure if they were trying to steal my wheels and got scared off or someone is f-ing with me.

Brutal, but this may be a blessing. Replace them with locking bolts and done done done.

Luckily the only thing that got damaged were the rotor covers. They were bent and touching the rotor. Sounded like palying cards in the spokes of a bike. I was pretty lucky. I took it to a brake shop to have them inspect the rotors to make sure they weren't warped and they said they were ok.

Sorry to hear that bro. It looks like you're running the stock RFTs. They probably looked closer and saw that they were RFTs and were like fuck that ...
