Bought a webcam and parked my car so i can see it from bedroom window. The webcam has night vision so if they come back hopefully I will catch them in the act. Couldn't find a wireless one so I have it hooked up to my laptop recording to a 1TB hard drive. That should be plenty of recording time.

Unfortunately i could only find one set of locking bolts that fit my car so i have two on each tire (the OEM ones and the ones I just picked up).

Thank you for kind words of wisdom. Had a house when I lived in Gainesville, but had to relocate to Tampa for work. Couldn't sell my house and couldn't afford two house payments. But thank you for that insightful 16th post.

At first I thought this was a thread of someone who just got their car lowered but read it and was kind of surprised people would go this far just to endanger someone, if it was a joke just to watch you drive off with your wheels fall off or it was someone trying to steal them, maybe they just hate BMW's? I don't know.

^^I have been thinking about it all night and I'm still not sure if someone was playing a joke (not a very funny one at that) or they were really trying to steal my rims. If they were trying to steal my rims then it had to be kids that have never changed a tire before in their lives. Who pulls all the bolts out without jacking it up (rhetorical question)?

Yeap they are 162's. I wish that MORR didn't discontinue the 19" reps. I would have definitely bought a set.

Thanks Myki335! I was pretty irate at first but I am thankful it wasn't any worse. If I didn't notice the car sitting so low I probably would have tried to drive off and who knows what kind of damage that could have done. But if I catch however did this I am probably not going to be so pleasant.

Glad you put the office on notice. Did they say if they experienced other thefts? If you're in the Tampa/St Pete area I can recommend a couple of our apartment communities -- we don't have that problem.

Dam your only 5 mins from my work then. I know Tampa is shady, but Westchase that surprises me. I reccomend camping in the backseat with a Mossy 500. As soon as they start blow thier heads off and claim they were coming at you!

Thanks for the suggestion. Went back to the office this morning with a typed letter and had the office manager sign it.

Hahaha! A Mossy 500? Damn! You are not playing around. My friend offered me his fully modded AR but I think my XDM .40 is sufficient enough.
