taking out the rotar arm would help but in london and big cities they just lift them with trucks as no-one takes any notice

that looks like it was a stunning car aswel ! hope you get it back in one peice !

also ask whoever monitors the city to look at the cameras as in london everywhere you go your watched !

MPI - so taking the injector cable loom out or possibly the engine relay (probably easier) would be the best thing. Gonna have to keep a sharp eye on SirD when I go to London methinks.

Sorry to hear about your loss but try checking the loot and gumtree, even autotrader because they might try change numbers and get rid of it under different numbers and that.


Hope you get it back.

so sorry to hear about this.
i would be depressed myself if mine were to be taken by scum.

i must say, through the people ive known who have had theirs stolen, it seems the cars dont tend to be sold on but broken up for parts. this way they get more money themselves.

:/ :S

I know how you feel mate, I had mine stolen on 17th October by heartless scum, and its heart breaking! :lol:

Have you had any luck with the search?

Hope you find it. =]

Have you tried phoning them again?

I have heard about a lot of Minis being stolen in London, people ring me up quite frequently when I have Cooper Sports for sale and tell me theirs has just been stolen.

I fear they may be taken abroad so they will never be seen again, especially when they are immaculate late cars like this one, no point in breaking them really...

Thats something ive thught about alot lately as it wouldent be hard to get into another country with a stolen vehical there should realy be alot more cheaks especialy since were an Island. also another idea cheak cheak ahuction sites based in Europe and things........ something might crop up i dont know how you would go about sorting it out and geting it back still if it was in Europe or some where like that hard enought in this country................

I suppose the typical British ignorance in learning foreign languages goes against us there!!
