Have you gone to the local nick to report it. They will do all the checks poss to see if its been lifted legally, it may not be on the TRACE comp yet. Also where or who did you buy it from? Its not unheard of for people to steal back cars after selling them with a spare set of keys.

Am in SE London will keppe my eyes open. Fingers cossed.

On a small plus side at least you have a decent second car in the pic.

Man, I'd hate it if my Mini got stolen!

Luckily, I live in Northeastern Oklahoma. I have the only drivable classic Mini in this part of the state, so if it went missing, it would probably be found pretty quickly, and I think any potential thieves know that already so they leave it alone.

I think thats because most 80's Minis are showing their age but haven't been restored yet.

I hope you're reunited with your Mini soon mate, I really pray that it's been taken for a legitimate reason and not stolen.

I'll keep an eye out.
Which side of London?

SW London...I'm soooo depressed!! :P

I'll also keep an eye out..

sad :P
especially as its more than just a car, its like a member of the family!
worrying aswell as i also live in SW london, but my cars are tracked due to how easy they are to steal.. (And how often cars get stolen in this city..)
gives you the opportunity to find the *naughty word beginning with B ending in arstards* without them even knowing anyones looking
5 metre radius 24/7 365
not only do you find your car but if you dont report it, vigilante justice is soo much sweeter than a possible slap on the wrist..

really do advise this for mini owners (The tracking, not the vigilante justice part ;) :lol: . )
and may be able to offer a very competitive price for the service too!
I'll make a few calls and see if i can strike a deal for a discount price for mini owners /oc members >_<

sorry to hear about this mate, will keep an eye out. a little trick i use to make it almost impossible for my mini to be stolen is to, when i park up for the night, take out the distributer rotor arm, and replace the cap. 10 second job, and the car is impossible to start, no matter what they try. a quick, simple and cheap way of protecting your mini.
