I finally get an estimate on the damage tomorrow and should have it in the should within the next 3 weeks.
It would seem perfectly logical to me what he did. Did the LEO ask you to say your are sorry ,shake hands and everything is forgotten ? What is going on here? Did they do anything to this guy?

Re: This is why you should invest in a dashcam

Well this just convinced me of getting a dash cam as I know how stupid jealous people can be, especially towards other peoples property. I hope that gym revokes that guys membership and your insurance company gets paid for the damages he did to your GC. What a dirt bag plain and simple.

But there's something you can do. Simply let them know that you don't feel safe around this other member, and either they revoke his membership or you and your family and your friends will find another gym that does take the safety of their members seriously.

When given the option of losing one potentially dangerous fool or a group of dedicated gym members (due to safety issues), who do you think they will side with? And if for some reason they DO side with this dolt, you probably don't want to support a gym like that in the first place. Win-win ... either way.

You never know about people. The Dunning-Kruger effect gets reaffirmed every day. To some people that kind of behavior makes perfect sense. They'll spend their lives in a personal struggle against "the man" until they figure it out ...or not.

So I received a message this morning from the Director of Facilities stating they will remove the offender from their gyms. Their legal counsel must have given them the go ahead after reviewing the report.

It's annoying that they didn't revoke his membership right away but they needed to go through the proper channels so they don't get sued for breach of contract. Sucks that legalities come before safety.

Re: This is why you should invest in a dashcam

Hey everyone,
This looks amazing -

I just got a 2016 HA and it's a beaut, I converted from a DIY world of the e46 BMW, which part of me will miss.

The guy at the dealership said not to tap into anything and go directly to the fuse.. plus the car's about 4 days old.. has anyone done a clean install from the center console?
I'm cool with plugging it into the cig lighter for now - but would like to not the wires hanging everywhere

I installed my dash cam the night I brought mine home with only a few miles on the odometer. The overhead lights just pop down and there's a big plug coming into it.

This thread has the instructions I used.

Does tapping into wires void any warranty?

Edit: I assume it's dealership by dealership

The guy at the dealership was adamant about not tapping the wires, but going to the fuse box

Can do that easy enough. If you're not comfortable doing it, I recommend taking it to a stereo shop or car alarm shop. They're experts at running wires from the fuse box and through the pillar and headliner. They have all the tools and diagrams to do it right.

I love doing that stuff myself.

I used to tap my bmw's wiring harness all the time
Subs, angel eyes, new speakers.

I guess i just wont "Tap" any wires, ill go straight to the fuse box and use the DIY provided here.

That's great news for you and the Misses. While I understand your frustration with them not acting on this immediately, it's pretty clear to me that you understand why they didn't. Aside from the breach of contract aspect of things, due process is important as well. I mean clearly this guy did it, but they may have been waiting to see the report and talk to the officer involved. Not sure.

Regardless, this is good news and hopefully you're able to put this mess behind you soon. I applaud you for your approach and patience in this situation. Many people would have handled this a different way and at least in my opinion you're doing everything right. For whatever that's worth to you. lol

Aha! What I said... I believe it's pure jealousy bc if it was a dropped weight issue, he would have brought it up then and there... Additionally, how would he even know it was your car?
