hope you get it back untouched.

I wonder how they got past the ignition lockout if they didnt have the key, unless they just towed the thing.

That has got to be one of the worst feelings to have so early in the morning. I hope you're able to recover it unscathed and hope the fuckers responsible get theirs in the end.

thieves have used tow trucks to take cars. Short of putting a boot on your wheel(s) or taking your wheels off there's really no way to prevent that.

but if he did drive off with it i wonder how he did it...

My money is on that the car was towed away by the thief. I don't think many people have the tech to bypass the immobilizer. That is great news that they found it.

weirdest thing!! So they actually caught the car in motion! The cop said it showed up on his lojack unit at 5:30 and they found the car at 6:30 with 2 guys driving on the freeway. They try to pull him over so the guys drive off real quick and lose the cops for a little while. They call in the bird and with lojack was able to track the guys as they were trying to ditch the car. they caught 1 guy and the other got away. They had scanners and walkie talkies that they were ditching also. Ignition was in perfect condition.

The odd thing is that when they ditched the car, it was apparently still running then about 5 mins after, it turned off on its own. that's what the cop told me. They still haven't been able to tell me how it was stolen yet, but a detective will get back to me later today.

Only down side is that they are keeping my car for a day up to a week to dust for prints and to do an investigation.

Car is in perfect condition btw.

THANK GOD FOR LOJACK!!!

Really weird how they were able to bypass the immobilizer in the first place unless they were able to replicate the BMW key trick on our cars.

Glad you got your car back! That's amazing! Weird how the thieves took the car, then tried to ditch it, and then it turns itself off. Weird as shit.

But on a positive note you got your baby back in the same condition before she was stolen. This was a success! When I clicked the thread title I was like Damn someone had their car stolen, I hope the owner gets it back and then BAM! you got the car back.
