The front plate is required to drive in Europe. BMW uses a 3m tape to attach it and they remove it when the car gets to the dealer in the US. Only Porsche drills them onto the car I believe.

Back passenger window but Bmw replaced it pretty fast. No real damage so its ok insurance will pay for everything no big deal. Just be mindful if you're ever in Paris that place is sketchy lol.

Great story! It sucks having your brand new car broken into... at least no one was hurt and you got to experience a bit more than you bargained for . It's all about the experiences in life. Thanks for sharing!!

You are very brave (or unconscious) to go to Paris with your brand new car. As far I am concerned Paris = Hell if you love your car. One of the last experience I had there was renting a brand new car at the train station (the car had only 11 km on the odo), pulling out of the parking lot and being immediately hit by a scooter. Next day I had a guy with a BMW GS mortorcycle falling on the car, poor car was only 2 days!!! Sorry about the bad experience for the broken windows, that is so common in Paris or Brussels. I love the piece of mind I have since I live in the US!!!
