Default Stolen Turbo Vent

x-post from 6speed

I guess someone needed them more than I did. I just happened to be researching BlackVue cameras right before I stumbled across the scene of the crime. This is what I get for not having a garage.

Filed a claim with insurance. Dealer has to order parts. Just a big inconvenience really.

You would be shopping for wheels too had it not been for the center lock wheels

Sucks. Hope no paint damage. Always own a home with a garage before buying a +$180k car.

I will consult you for real estate before my next car purchase. You seem to know a lot.

Here's a quote from dealer for those interested in knowing how much German plastic costs.

Took the car in to one of these new Progressive Insurance centers in Pasadena. You wait for 30 minutes while they survey the damage, then walk out with a check for the approx cost. It was a real convenient end to a really inconvenient day.

Parts are on order through dealer expected in roughly 2 weeks.

Of course two pieces of plastic is excessive at $1400, however, I think the labor at $330 is even worse. I assume that is three hours of labor to snap two pieces of plastic into their respective tabs. Sounds like 5 min to me unless I am unaware of something.

looks like dealer took advantage of your bad luck, no discount on parts and 6x the labor needed.. they literally just pop in.

It's good insurance will pay for everything. Otherwise,I would've suggested if you're in the NYC area I could've popped those in for you at the price of one beer.
It's hard to imagine why someone would steal these.... I can only imagine they've done it out of spite to screw you...sort of " screw this rich guy! " Whether it's hard for a normal person to comprehend this kind of behavior,it's out there,believe it or not...
