Hey Guys,
Please keep an eye out for a 2001 E46 Yellow/Green (Phoenix Yellow) M3 in Florida, I Just got a call from a friend that had her Bimmer stolen early this AM and I am trying to get her tag # but she is going nuts right now - Really nice car, It looks exactly like this just with tinted windows. Please just make a note of tag # and location/time if you see one of these and I will update when I get the tag # Thanks...
Nick

Is that the one that's usually parked on south st downtown?
Hey Dwight - That is my friend Lisa and that is the location! Did you do it :) Just Joking, Good Call on the location - That is her Chiropractic office and her residence as well. It was broken into back in December and last week it was at the dealership for service and I asked her to contact the dealership to make them aware in case it was an "Inside" job - You never know!

Car not spotted in Dallas, TX area all weekend. Sorry. I did see a black one like that though. Is it possible the thief repainted the car?

Thanks XTN :) If possible if you see the black one again run them off the road and make sure it's old paint or check to see if it's a vinyl wrap :) thanks for the heads up :up:

I will be going south on 95 from Daytona today and will keep an eye out for it.

Did she have a Sunpass transmitter on the car? If so maybe they might have time and location for when it was last used.

Probably just me being paranoid but, My brother is staying with me right now and he couldn't sleep last night and went to smoke a ciggy on the porch between 4-5 am, When I woke up this morning he told me an unmarked wrecker without all the bells and whistles drove by my house twice while he was sitting on the darkened porch and I had already parked the Lotus in it's home in the back yard but the past few nights I was lazy and it was parked out front!
I wonder if our neighborhood is being worked over ?

How did they steal it?
Modern BMWs generally get flatbedded/towed. It's way too hard to circumvent the immobilization in any kind of timely fashion. You can drag one onto a flatbed or pick one with a wheel-lift and be gone very quickly.

Very interested to see if someone actually spotted it! That'd be pretty sweet!
