were there any robberies or driveby's last night?
that's usually where stolen beaters end up and then abandoned afterwards.

chances are you'll probably get it back. If it was the bimmer, it'd probably be in russia or thailand by now =)

Drove around the side streets last night to see if it was abandoned in the area but with no luck. I don't really want to find the car but right now my family is short a car. I'll get a rental this weekend from insurance and drive sh|t out of it for 30 days.

Do any of you use theft deterrent devices? I have a Club but never used it.

Also I found some do's and don'ts car tips which should be common sense to BMW owners:

Do
-Lock all windows, doors and the sunroof whenever you leave a vehicle, even for just a few minutes (locked)
-Try to avoid parking in unlit areas at night (my driveway)
-Fit a locking petrol cap and wheel nuts
-Activate the steering lock - even in your own drive or garage
-Have your car registration number etched on every window
-Fit an alarm or engine immobiliser
-Postcode your radio cassette player
-Consider fitting a vehicle tracking device.

Don't
-Leave valuables on view
-Leave keys in the ignition
-Leave driving documents in the car - they may help a thief to sell it.

That's awful man, hopefully the police will call you if they find it. My friend's ford prob got stolen and the police found it the next day in mississauga abandonded. Hopefully you will have the same good fortune.

also for BMW owners,
-double lock your doors. It's hard to get into the car if you can't unlock or open the door. you'll have to climb through the window! =)
-Engage the engine disable function of the OBC.

For all car owners, i have a little tip that will annoy the hell out of car thieves!!
It's a little hard on bmw's, but on most other cars, just disconnecting the lead ignition cable from the distributer cap will foil most car thieves. My dad's car got broken into, and the thieves popped the ignition and tried to start the car with a screwdriver (so we assumed), but they had to abandon their efforts because we disconnected that wire and they probably got stumped as to why the car wouldn't start =)
it was a pain getting the steering column fixed though =(

Maybe the thieves sold it in the U.S.

This quote from MSN headline "America's Most Stolen Vehicles":

"CCC Information Services Inc., a Chicago-based supplier of software and communications systems to auto insurers, said the 1991, 1989 and 1990 Camry models, respectively, topped its annual study of theft claims from insurers."

You have to get a unique beater because camery is 1, 2 and 3 on the most stolen cars list.

1. 1991 Toyota Camry
2. 1989 Toyota Camry
3. 1990 Toyota Camry
4. 2000 Honda Civic Si
5. 1994 Chevrolet C1500 4X2
6. 1995 Honda Accord EX
7. 1994 Honda Accord LX
8. 1994 Honda Accord EX
9. 1988 Toyota Camry
10. 1996 Honda Accord LX

This study is based on some 1.2 million motor vehicles reported stolen to the NICB in 2001 by law enforcement agencies nationwide.

Looks like you shouldn't get Honda or Toyota.

Beaters may be fairly cheap in value but the parts by themselves are worth a lot. That's one of the main reasons why they're stolen. And they're often not as well protected as high-priced cars.
