Customer Question

I purchased a vehicle (BMW) from my attorney, after doing all required NICB and title checks the vehicle came back clear. I registered the vehicle and subsequently traded in to a dealership for another vehicle (AM). A month after the trade in, the police impound the vehicle I traded in(BMW) saying that it was stolen. No CHP 180 form indicating that police had impounded the vehicle was ever filed, nor was dmv or myself notified of the vehicle seizure.... the dealership then came and took my car (AM) in the middle of the night and refuses to return it. What can I do as a bona fide purchaser for value in this situation?
