    Default Had 4 Alloy Wheel Centres nicked to day

    Parked up my BM 330i today in a Kidderminster carpark, and some toe-rag decided to steal my 4 wheel centre's. Cost me £31 + vat to replace them. Just don't know what the worlds coming to, surely if they can afford a BM they can afford some new wheel centre's if they want some...crazy.

    I suppose it could have been worse, they could have nicked all the wheels, assuming they could have got the wheel locks off.

    We have problems with the grill badges being stolen up here, the local stealers even have an insignia with its front badge missing.

    I'm watching out for it

    Around here kids keep nicking the VW logo from Volkswagens, the bigger the logo, the more prized they are, so the Transporter vans are especially targeted. Kids then wear them around their necks and pretend to be white rappers.

    Oh, hang on.....that hasn't happened since 1985... lol

    Insignia owners had better watch out then in that case, badges are far too large IMO. TBH matey this is the first time for probably 20 yrs I've had anything nicked off a car, so I suppose I've been fairly lucky.

    It just does'nt happen where we live being so remote, last year there were just 2 burglaries in the surrounding area and one incident of attempted car theft and the villian who did the burglaries was soon caught and locked up according to the Hereford news, it's when you start to venture out and mix with the outside world.
