Anyone parting a vert?

I need a new passenger side window.

Found this when I went out to the car this morning (see pics).

Luckily they didn't take anything out of the car because there wasn't really anything valuable in it.

Unfortunately I had my summer wheels for the E34 sitting in my parking spot behind it because I was going to trade them for a hardtop, and they took those.

****ers.

So if any of you see these wheels up for sale, let me know.

They are 17x7.5 ET20 and they're marked "made in Italy" on the inside of the spokes.

I didn't check your pics well enough in your other post ....

Didn't you say those wheels were IN your car (along with all your other wordly possessions) for your giant insurance claim?

Either way ... sorry for your loss

shitty. I leave my vert with the windows and top down 99% of the time (unless it's raining, but then the car is not driven) so that doesn't happen. I'd rather have them take whatever crap is in the car, which is usually nothing, than have them break a window $$$. Try Chuck's Auto (416)749-9211 in Rexdale... he's got a shit load of used parts.

Yeah, in retrospect (and in future) I'll just leave it unlocked. They didn't take anything that was in it anyway.

I guess I could always lock the trunk separately.

Totally forgot about Chuck's - I'll give them a ring.

Boxer2: It looks worse than it really actually was... luckily all that was really damaged was the window. Still really shitty though. I was looking forward to seeing the wheels on your E28!


Eurostyle: Got your PM, thanks. I'll give you a call tomorrow.
