Parked last night at 8pm in the street as usual...this morning at 9am I found a Mercedes S Class parked at her place....
Ringed everybody but unfortunately the car wasn't taken by traffic enforcement nor police as it was well parked, taxed and insured.

Anyway, registration was Y708BKE

Here a couple of pictures of the beloved...I owned her since february, was short but intense! :)

:)! Can't the congestion charge camera's find the car if it's in London? Like track where it's gone... Just an idea!

Sure its not a transformer?

Identical to mine - (haha not the exact same car before anyone asks) lovely looking car. Hope you find it soon. Just inform all the relevent people and perhaps ask around the area see if anyone knows around what time it got taken.

Hope you find it I know I'd be devestated.

When this happened to another TMF'er they put adverts on Ebay etc. in case it was offered in bits. Might also be worth watching overseas sites and dealers.

They got theirs back, but it was a much rarer Mk1 so easier to spot.

The more I think about this the more I'm sad and angry...I spent so much time finding the "perfect" one, don't think I want to repeat the search anymore now, especially because I will live with the nightmare of having her stolen again!!

Any tips for the insurance claim? I know already they will try to value the car at the lowest level...pls let me know if anybody had any useful experience to at least be able to recover the right value of the car! I'm insured with Direct Line...

Thanks everybody for your support!

ask a few companies / clubs for a professional estimated value - I do this via central minis for assistance in getting an agreed value at the point of taking out the insurance. may help you in your claim?
