Anyone here get vandalized while their top was down?

I wouldn't leave mine down for any extended period of time but have left it down for a few quick runs into a store (5 mins or less)? Anyone here had their car vandalized cause you left the top down (trash/drinks thrown in)? I hope it never happens but you never know cause some people can be total *****.

At 1.5 years of ownership, so far so good. However, I only leave it down if I'm at a fancy restaurant or something where I can pretty much see the car. I'm still pretty anal about this car and with this Texas sun, I'm usually more prone to just putting to the top up because I don't want the interior baked. Good luck!

I've left mines down and windows up at the grocery store while parked wayyyy out in the lot with no other cars around and nothing happened. Normally if I'm nearby I leave it down. No acts of vandalism to report thank goodness. I also never leave anything visible inside to tempt anyone.

I had my camera stolen out of my 645Ci once. Luckily it was only a point and shoot.

I don't have a convertible, but my dad has an SL550 roadster. I was driving it one night and I left the top down to go grab a coffee. locked the car and threw my phone in... that alone set off the alarm (scared me! haha). So no, no vandalism to report. I only leave the top down when I'm driving his car if I'm gone for like 5-10 mins, or in constant visible range, never for longer periods of time.

I had my Z3 for four years and would occasionally park the car for an hour or so with the top down. Never had a problem.
