Jacked up bimmer missing a wheel at BMW dealership

Last week I passed by Town+Country BMW dealer, so I made a right turn on Kennedy coming from South. As I passed by their carwash, I saw a late model E90 jacked up and missing a rear wheel on passenger's side. I found it strange to see a car left like that in a bmw dealership. I had a feeling someone stole that wheel...

most likely getting the rim repaired, we have cars sitting on jacks at my dealer sometimes, number 1 reason is that the wheels got sent out for repairs, or some mobile rim repair guy is on site doing it.

Never thought of that, but you could be right. It was a heavyduty automtoive jack. If they really wanted to take that wheel, they would probably bring a wooden jack to throw it under.
