That is peanuts compared to the priceless Egyptian artifacts and treasures destroyed. Sickening really.

this has nothing to do with freedom this is a by product of the legitimate protests. people often use civil unrest to steal and destroy others property. they should cut off the hands of everyone who stole and destroyed property.

I love how all the wheels are gone.

Maybe we'll see a surplus of OEM replacements in the classifieds now. :

Btw these cars weren't wrecked by protesters, but by thieves who took the demonstrations as a chance to make the hit of lifetime and the real protesters were absolutely peaceful and civilized. Shame on them, they are a real disgrace. Anyways I hope the owners had insurance and won't have to pay for the repairs.

well if their insurance works the way it would out here wouldn't the dealership they left it at be held responsible? it was in their possession. A guy I know had an A4 with nice rims, left it at Audi for service overnight and the next day it was up on blocks. Dealership didn't want to pay for it but when lawyers got involved they said it was in their possession so they were liable.

thieves who found it necessary to dent and destroy everything while they were at it? im not saying it wouldnt happen in the states but i think you should reconsider that statement.

They took the goddamn desks, computers, GT1s, doors, wheels, and anything in there way, look at the e90's hood its very obvious that someone wanted to take it but couldn't find a way to remove it so he just destroy it.

Insurance is optional and BMW probably wont repair the cars on them, they busted my m6's transmission and I had to pay 50% of the cost price and that was the most I can get out of them.

you take it to a lawyer? thats BS if you're trusting them to fix or maintain the car they are liable for any mistakes they make or storage of your vehicle for a reasonable amount of time.
