What the heck did he write?

The crime is one reason I moved out of NYC. I now live 60 miles away and can leave my house unlocked and car unlocked when about town.

Wouldn't that be nice Wrote smith like it if I translate from Russian/Ukrainian weird combination with couple of English letters in the sentence "So what now u effin Georgian". Fortunately its a black marker, not a permanent inscription.

That's pretty low. Must be a sad state of affairs for them if that's what goes for things to do on a Saturday night.

Sorry to hear about it.

Some states do not permit insurance companies to count comprehensive claims in your claim history. Check with your Agent.

That's fucked up. If it's any consolation, I'm Ukranian and most of my family's friends are Georgian that own all the Russian/Georgian restaurants in Sheepshead Bay.

Getting camera before the tires. Anybody has hardwired the dash cam directly to fuse box with 24/7 12 volt electricity, so that it works non stop? Also, anyone knows if F30 has some type of battery leakage protection that would interfere with this idea?

OP, sorry to hear of this attack just because of where you are from. I work with people from all around the world so I have a zero tolerance for issues like this.

Sorry to get off topic - but is there even a place to put a spare in the 335 or are we bound by a small compressor and some tire sealent, I don't have my car yet.

Just a small storage space, not for a spare. Its either a run flat or as other guys mentioned, regular+sealant. Friend on mine has G37 and it came with sealant.

@ Dannyzlo, are you kidding me, whenever (if ever) I drive into Park Slope, it's good luck finding parking. Seems like you need a garage regardless IMO. But yes, definitely tamer.

I'm in Bushwick and apparently it's people's hobby to smash in windows or take a rear tow hook cap as a souvenir. Sorry for being cynical but I see this all the time when I walk the dog. Broken glass on or near sidewalk or missing tow caps... Always good to garage the car, if you can.

In any case, elgandashvili sorry to hear about the tires but as other members mentioned, tirerack probably has the best price and they deliver quickly. I recently bought a set of winter tires and literally received them next day.

Good luck and if possible get a parking spot.

Agree, just as good in a pinch. My thoughts are, especially w 3 yr old on board, how far am I really willing to drive with no air in a RFT? Even if you do go the max 50 miles you still gotta get the thing fixed. Would rather just use the roadside assistance. Either way, you're losing a fair amount of time. Really do miss not having a full size spare...change the tire and get the bad one fixed next week!
