This is an unfortunate situation and all my sympathy goes to the owners and others who've had their car stolen. But the most basic security system could have prevented this.
If you don't have a garage, well, I would reconsider buying any vehicle you can't afford to lose.
Also, this is also not a safety issue so BMW is not required to do anything about it. Every vehicle has their security loopholes and if it is worth stealing, thieves will think of a way to take it.
