I remember seeing that the 1999 Acura Integra was the most stolen vehicles because I had a 1999 Acura Integra GS-R.

Nah I sold it before that could happen when I moved to South Florida. My friend down here had his yellow Integra Type R stolen a few years ago and his brother got the same car-same color a while ago and it was stolen a few months ago. Both stolen from their driveway. I know the GS-R isn't as likely to be stolen but the risk is still really high.

the only reason it's on the list....

it's based on % of the total # of that model sold

M roadsters were sold in very small numbers so even a tiny amount stolen make a large percentage. Also these M roadsters had the 330hp motor which was desirable to thieves, and often distroyed by money shifts at the track (and then reported stolen/insurance fraud)

no BMW is a frequently stolen car when you look at actual numbers of stolen cars
