          I'm beyond frustrated right now. I come out to my car this morning to see all my doors open and the trunk is wide open. They stole pretty much everything that wasn't bolted down. They tried stealing my deck but, couldn't get it out. They didn't steal anything of real value. They only thing that's going to be expensive to replace are my sunglasses that were like a 130 bucks. I had the sunroof cracked open that's the only way I could think they got in.

          This is the second break in the last week. My landlord's truck got broken into and they stole all the keys to my apartment complex and and all the lease info for the apartments as well. I guess one of my neighbors saw some scrawny cracked out looking guy creeping around knocking on doors and looking through windows. Supposedly there is 3 of them and they ride around on bikes casing houses and cars or whatever they can steal.

          It's time for some vigilante shit. I'm going to set some bait tonight. I got an old Schwinn 10-speed I'm going to put out. I'm going to sit on my porch in the dark, with my Mossberg 500 loaded with buckshot.
          Sorry to hear about this, Matt. I hope you catch those little fucks and give them everything they deserve.

            Am I the only one who has issues with BMW Northwest's parts department? I order some door moulding for my car. Told me it was going to take up 5 days. Honestly 5 days nowadays for a dealership is pretty ridiculous IMO. Shows up last Thursday and it's the wrong part. Call them back at around 3, they tell me they're going to overnight it. Why couldn't they overnight it the first time around? Anywho, they said because of the weekend I'll have it first thing Monday morning. Seems legit, right? Well, it's around 4:30 or so still haven't heard anything. Call them up ask where my part is. The guys put's me on hold for like 5 minutes. He gets back on the phone tries to feed some bullshit about routing crap. It was pretty obvious someone forgot to put the order in. They then tell me I'll have it tomorrow. It's now 4 on Tuesday call them up again and ask them AGAIN where is my part. Oh it'll be here tomorrow. Are you kidding me. I deal with multiple dealerships on a daily basis and I've never had such a PITA experience. Fuck today, I need a drink.

              Finally place the order with Blunttech to replace all the hoses and belts on the vert, along with some e90 drop hats to throw on with my M3 springs. I just might have this thing road worthy within the month!

                Buy a Saab and get back to me.

                "Oh, you don't have one in stock? oh, it's on backorder? Oh, you don't know when you can get one? Oh, it might be NLA forever? Oh, the company doesn't exist anymore? Ok, thanks."

                  Saab Parts is still in business though, can you not order from them yet?

                  I went through similar trying to get my motor, there were only two LS3 E-Rod kits for manual trans in the country, MD and CA. MD wanted about 2k more plus 1500 to ship the thing. Backordered with no restock date. Lazy, automatic-driving Americans almost ruined my project.

                    I understand if a part not available, it's not available. It's the fact they were giving me the run around.

                      Yeah they're kinda ridiculous about the shipping at BMW Seattle as well.

                      me: "5 days, is there any way to get it sooner?"
                      them: "Well, we could also overnight it."
                      me: "And that costs how much extra?"
                      them: "None."
                      me: "...then why is there another option?"

                      for some reason it seemed like he hadn't thought about it until then.

                            Anything I need from the dealer, I call O'Hara and get. He gets a pretty fair discount on most things.
