Alex...sorry to hear about that. Met you at the booth and you were an extremely nice guy. You probably don't remember me because there were tons of people there.

Can't believe that someone would steal your camera let along check to see if your door was open. Some people are plain rude & disrespectful

Some people have absolutely no sense that most of the cars at bimmerfest belong to people and not BMW. The cars are not there for a test drive or for people to see how that car 'feels' to sit inside.

Overheard 2 people talking (owner + vendor) at a booth where they were telling the owner, some stupid stubborn guy that would not get out of the car. The guy felt he had the right to sit inside the car because it was unlocked & simply wanted to. So if someone leaves a car unlocked, that gives people the right to sit inside?? WTF

Really hope that whoever took the camera or even a friend of whoever took the camera has the decency to return the camera.

Were you the one who asked about the tint? Sorry, my memory really is horrible. The lack of sleep didn't help either.

That stuff about people getting into cars is lame too. I have clearbra on my car and I saw people picking at it. I just tried not to look.

Hey man. It's cool, when i noticed it gone i knew i wouldn't find it again. It only took us a couple of mins to pack up no biggie. Hopefully, if I can sell my rims, I'll be out there with you guys in San Diego w/ some new shoes

Bimmerfest was awesome man. You should make it out next time. The drive really wasn't too bad. I saw a few cops, but I didn't have any run ins. I just slowed down around bends and under overpasses.

Im sure there were more things that were stolen. Always lock your car and remember there are some fucked up people in this world that dont care about anything but themselves and would take anything from anyone and not care how it affects people. Thats just life though.

Sorry about your misfortune, but you may have a higher rate of return if you post a mesage on Bimmerfest.com and e46fanatics.com.

^ unfortunately no, but the camera was a couple of years old so i don't know if the cc companies would be that generous anyways.

thanks for the support guys, but i guess i'm not too upset. getting a chance to go to bimmerfest in exchange for my dslr was worth it!

i heard about this on another thread, but had no idea it was you.

really sorry about this!

stolen items and the fight are just ghetto.

also heard somebody tried to steal a fog light off another car. the guy that saw called out the thief since he knew he was not the owner. the thief said his friend had his key, and he would go get it, but of course he never came back.

also heard about shit getting stolen at last year's bimmerfest.

good luck man!

btw... i would post this also at bimmerforums.com if you haven't already done so.
