got egged

So I got egged last night.
Never really experienced any kind of vandalism on my car before and made me pretty upset to see this.
Worst part is, I have the video footage but cannot make out the license plate only information I can obtain is that it's a white e90
Makes me wonder if there is any way to clarify the footage enough to obtain the plates (though may not be worth the time and effort)
and also the fact that it happened 5 minutes before I returned to my car.

Ended up with a small dent on the driver side door and a full day of washing the car. Reported it to the police (non emergency) and got a file number, but I think I have to suck it up and move on rather than claim the damage to the insurance company.

Sigh.

I feel your pain and know what it's like. There are a lot of haters out there who can't stand to see others have nice things. Someone pried off my M badge when I used to park in my driveway (I now park in the garage always). If possible you should park the 1M in a garage.

Feel your pain.. happened to my previous 135i... parked on the street across from my driveway and later that night when I drove my car back on the driveway found out it was egged... pretty mad.. I know it's my neighbor across the street as they had a party that night and some ppl were pretty drunk... didn't have proof... had to suck it up... never park my car on the other side....

The cops can digitally enhance that video if they want to. If I were you, I'd look around to see if there are any security cameras around. They could have passed an ATM or liquor store a block away with a security camera. It might have a better shot of the car and or occupants. Just a thought.

I'm sorry to hear this happened to you. I hope you got that egg off asap as eggshell will damage the clearcoat.

You just don't fuck with another man's automobile

Yeaa.. I washed my car first thing when I woke up this morning. It's pretty disgusting how people mess around with other people's property.

I can't seem to get that "egg-y" smell out of my car though.. the yolk seemed to seep into the moleskin where the window goes up and down and the smell is seeping into the cabin. Every time I roll the window down and up, it leaves a new streak of yolk on the window. kinda getting frustrating

I forwarded your video to a friend who works in the film business, he's got all kinds of fancy video gear. Let's see if his CSI skills are up to the task...

^^^ Hahah. I was thinking about that scene as I read this thread.

OP: Sorry to hear. I can't believe those idiots have nothing better to do then drive around egging cars. Maybe if they focused their energy into something more productive, they wouldn't be so mad at the world...

I think you should at least try to identify and expose the assholes.

If you feel comfortable, post the video on jalopnik.com

There are some real sleuths there and law enforcement often turns to the community to ID blurry videos of auto related crimes with success.

Be aware that there is something of a good-natured anti-BMW bias over there (there are often threads named 'this is why people think BMW drivers are asshats where people post pictures of BMWs parked by D-bags) but they respect the 1M so you should be safe.

That's terrible man. I'm sorry to hear this happened. I am curious to know about the security camera in your car. Is that something all 1M's come with?

Totally sucks....
It looks like the street you park on is a side street? Which would lead me to beleive this is someone who drives by on a regular basis or lives close by. Knowing most idiots, he (or she I guess) will probably drive by again.

Feel free to repost and share the video.
The video quality will be better if you view it after you download it.
Any help identifying the car will be greatly appreciated

The camera I used is Blackvue dr400g-hd powered through magic pro. The magic pro allows your camera to operate even when your car is parked until the car battery level reaches the certain voltage (can be set through magic pro), then shuts down the camera, so your car's battery won't be fully dead.

I always garage keep my car. This happened when I was not at home and I had to park on the street. The area I parked is about 4 blocks from my house. I drove by there last night on my way home to see if there was a white e90 parked outside but the only car parked there was a white x3..

If only you could get your hands on Esper, the voice controlled image scanner of the phenomenal "Blade Runner" sci-fi movie (1982).
