Why BMW’s xDrive Isn’t The Best Burglary Tool [Video]
The proof for that lies in the adjacent clip, which shows an Apple Store in California that was broken into using a BMW X5.
22-year old Equonne Howard used his 2003 BMW X5 to smash into the store, then, helped by another criminal, grabs quite a few i-branded gadgets. The man returned to the crime scene later, aiming to take his license plate that apparently fell during the ramming, he was arrested and received enough charged to fill the boot of his SAV, but this is not the point.
The idea is that since BMW makes SAVs (Sports Activity Vehicles) and not SUV (Sports Utility Vehicles), its cars are not good at offorading and theredore aren't suitable for smashing into stores - pay attention to the footage and you’ll notice that the xDrive all-wheel drive vehicle struggles to get out of the store, costing the burglar precious time.
