Well I sold the Baur and car was picked up by transporter this week. Somewhere between Dallas and Houston a set of 4x100 BWA rims were jacked out of the trunk. I'm pissed and so is the buyer of the car. I have detailed pics of them so if anybody sees a set for sale give me a heads up. Most likely thief sold them for scrap. I hate a thief

Man that sucks. Keep an eye out for them to pop up on e-bay. Your probably right that they went for scrap. Bastards!

Paul, were they stolen off the transport? Seems like they would have insurance for that.

Ok, this is way off-topic, but you really need to make your avatar smaller dude. On my 13" laptop, any post you make takes up the whole freaking screen!

the transporter's insurance, or the buyers. Most insurance companies will cover a newly purchased vehicle for 30 or so days to allow for uninterrupted use while the paperwork is being accomplished.

Might want to have the buyer check his insurance policy/with his agent. And check with the transporter too.

Hook me up! If I knew how, I'd do it myself.

The transporter would be my first place to put the heat onto. I shipped an O2 across the country once and when it arrived it was out of gas. I asked and the driver told me that the gas cap was not a locking cap and that anything could have happened at night when he rests. It turned out that he ruptured my gas tank with his restraining hooks and did not want to own up to it. He even moved my car to a different spot on the truck than when he loaded it. It seemed funny to me that the first thing he said was he could not release or unload the car from the truck until I paid him and that he has a schedule to keep yadda yadda. Never give the trunk keys to the transporter. Show em the trunk at pick up and only give the ignition key.

at least they used to be.... i was gonna say the same thing. hate being pessimistic, but I don't know too many random criminals that are going to go thru the trunks of cars on a transporter. and even if the trunk was unlocked, they probably would've broken the lock off the trunk with a crowbar before trying to hit the button. (yes, they're that stupid).

i do know of some dirty tow truck drivers and vehicle transporters, though... happened all the time when I used to live in Honolulu... most stuff would get robbed right from the dock, and some of the dock workers were arrested...

if the car left your possession with the wheels in the trunk and the trunk locked, the driver had the trunk key and the car was delivered to the buyer with no damage to the trunk and the wheels missing, sad as it is to say, all the indicators point in one direction.........
