One of our readers just sent in a video of a BMW 1M being stolen in just three minutes.

The heist apparently took place in the UK and by accessing the BMW OBD II port and programming a blank key. After unlocking the car, the highly trained thieves wearing masks have simply pushed away the 1M from the cameras and drove off.

This is not the first case of stolen high-end vehicles in the UK. Back in April, another reader emailed us a series of links to articles from UK magazines and BMW forums that point to an organized gang that have stolen a large number of BMWs this year.

Here are some of the links: 1 | 2 | 3

    I Don’t get it…BMW knows this happens and they do nothing?
    When i buy a BMW it’s not suppose to be worried if my car get’s stolen, but if it’s the Ultimate Driving Machine…I would expect if the neighbor Renault or Fiat would get stolen, not my BMW…
    For God Sake BMW please be the company you used to be…now Audi it’s laughing at you…shame on you…
