Put a new one on, park your car outside and wait for the focker to steal it again, you'd be surprised how many thieves return to the scene of the crime.

best way to prevent theft of your emblem is to go to a body shop and get them shaved

good point... just less satisfying, and stooping to his level. Bah, he was a little thuggin kid anyways.. maybe around 5'8" @ 160LB...

only worry is getting into a ruining-car-wars with this kid. I park outside.. don't want him damaging my car during the night......

I was thinking about getting them flush mounted with the paint... and clear-coated with the paint job at the end too... (i'm getting a paint job and some body mods done in Spring)... think this is possible / feasible?

THE BASTARD GOT MY HOOD EMBLEM TODAY TOO!!!!!!!!

LOOKS LIKE I WAS WRONG!! ... not the gym after all... looks like it's some asshole who parks at Islington Station (Toronto) during the day.

Someone stole my valve stem caps around a month ago.. (chrome ones)... pissed me off. I bought new ones with a key.. (and a little BMW logo on the tip... which no one can see anyways.) I went to work on Saturday.. that must be when my trunk emblem was stolen. Went to work today... and my Hood emblem and one of my valve stem caps was taken off... (he must've been turning the other 3 for hours and gave up when they wouldn't give... but he got one of them, guess I didn't lock it tight enough)... ****... now that's a bitch! ... two real carbon fibre emblems... stolen. I'm just dying to meet this guy... not just for myself, but for bimmer owners everywhere.

you may want to get one of those really sensitive alarms, and turn it on in high risk areas. I can't even imagine the fate of the person if I ever caught someone doing that - even to someone else's car.

The problem would be is if some one tried to take the emblem off, they would really ruin your paint finish (crack the clear coat).

The shock idea would be awesome, but you run the risk of the person getting pissed and beating on your car. If you're going to shock him, you'll have to drop him for a good 10 minutes and have a pager go off so you can catch the person.
