Brake Caliper Housing Stolen

Can you believe what some thieves decided to steal in my office building garage today? My rear break caliper housing things, whatever they are called. I noticed this evening while at home that something was missing. I contacted a friend of mine that also has an M that parks in the same garage and his were stolen as well. Only the rears. Im guessing those are easy to take off without removing the wheels. Security is all over that garage so it was a well orchestrated plan.

This is a joke, right?

Rear brakes on the M5 don't have caliper covers. Only the front have them.

No worries. I honestly thought you were pulling our leg.

Save that one for April fools day.

I informed the friend of mine as well. Im glad I wasn't the only one that thought the rear clamps look like crap and that something got swiped. Anyway, I still feel like an idiot. As many times as I have hand washed my car, you would think I would have taken mental inventory of every inch of the car.

Your punishment is now having to tell your friend that the rear brake calipers are supposed to look that way.

Honestly, I think they look terrible and wish that BMW would have done some nice rear caliper covers. If Merc can do it BMW should be able to do it as well.

Actually I wish the rear calipers were similar to the front ones... the same size or smaller!

They do look terrible. Why isn't there an aftermarket upgrade of some kind? Maybe there is and Im showing my ignorance, again.

I'm sure you could buy the ones from the last couple pages of Car & Driver, but I think those look even worse.

Personally, I think you're getting off too easy! Lol

Like the time I called to complain that my espresso maker quit working, only to find out it was out of water.

Kidding. I didn't even realize the rear calipers didn't have covers myself. They're the same ones that are on the 550, correct?

Dude I had the same thing happen to me last week, but it wasn't my M. They were trying to take the wheels but only got as far as removing the lugs.
