It started in the 1990s, when pricey airbags were stolen from cars. Then, high prices of precious metals have caused a spike in the theft of automotive catalytic converters.
The latest trend among thieves is rear bumper covers from the recently-discontinued BMW M6 models. Experts believe that the M6 bumper cover fits almost perfectly onto the rear of ’98-’02 Honda Accord Coupe. BMW M6 owners are urged to keep their vehicles in garages whenever possible or politely slip the valet a Benjamin in order to park their M6 upfront, with the other douchebags fine automobiles.
I took this picture at the BMW Performance Driving School almost two years ago, and just happened to stumble upon it now.
I don’t know what the story behind it is. The bumper will definitely not fit an Accord, but that was the best line I could come up during lunch today.
