David Beckham’s armour-plated BMW X5 stolen - Again!

Why would he give the keys to somebody who does not know how to use the beast.
---
"David Beckham’s armour-plated BMW X5 was stolen in Madrid after he lent it to an assistant, according to several media reports. The £100,000 SUV was taken from outside the Gran Madrid hotel near Beckham’s home in the upmarket suburb of La Moraleja. The star lent the grey X5 to one of his aides who was on a trip from the U.K. He apparently forgot to switch on the car’s built-in tracking system. Police believe the thieves are unlikely to have known it belonged to the star. “He is gutted. David loves this car,” The Sun quoted a friend as saying. Beckham is said to have bought the armored SUV after a kidnap attempt on his six-year-old son Brooklyn. "

E61Silver is an unknown quantity at this point
BMW Assist

With BMW Assist they should be able to track it.

Don't get the quote that the user forgot to turn on tracking?

I Still don't understand why the car could not be tracked by BMW?

the full story is not being told ! Surely an inside job (i.e. someone with a key) and anyway; is the X5 Security available with the 4.8 engine ?
The Wannadoo link reports his X5 is the 4.8.

"The motor was fitted with state-of-the-art security but police said the gang used computer software to start the engine electronically."

Was the vehicle was equipped with remote start and was this hacked? A pretty sophisticated rip-off.
