This sucks, theives suck. I can't believe they didn't even leave your car on blocks, that just blows ! I hope your bosses take care of you, and get you some new wheels right away.
That's why you need the alarm and it has to be installed right.

Sensor with 2 zones one is inside the car and other zone is external. And the motion switch. With these calibrated right it will detect wheel tampering.

This is more than one person probably a team of 2-4.

The locks do give you a little delay cause it's more work and noise.

That does suck number3, I had a set of those aluminum turbine wheels stolen off my Z-28. They were thoughtfull thieves they at least but it on blocks for me. These guys need their asses kicked, or some buckshot to pick at of their jeans. Lock and load number3

Number 3, I am so very sorry. It sucks what people will do sometimes. Rest assured that if I happen to see some dudes with 4 18" Camaro wheels and tires, I am going to make sure the "family" takes care of them.

That is the dirtiest, most low-down thing anyone could do to any car!!! Didn't even have the decency to put it on blocks, or stands.... just dropped it straight down on the suspension.... f**king WRONG!!!

Sheriff's office left a message. Apparently in the "debris" around the car was a Range Rover Tool Kit as well. They apparently found the Range Rover that was also without wheels and the tool kit. I have 3 jacks under the car right now.

Good thoughts from everyone.

Have a garage, but left the opener at work when I let another engineer take Number 3 for the weekend. So didn't put it in the garage. Often in the summer, I'll just park in the driveway.

Had my hands full when I was bringing in our luggage, thought to lock the door and OOPS, central locking under the radio doesn't work real well with luggage hanging around your shoulder so I figured I would just hit the button on the key fob from inside the house. So either I did and the car didn't lock or I just didn't, the car was unlocked this morning and I am doubtful the thieves could have opened the doors without the key, but you never know.

Just hoping there is no damage to the exhaust or oil pan. We'll have to wait and see.

I'll keep you posted.
