Getting my mini back after a year long resto, lots of minis being nicked in London I think, just wondering what people use for security? Alarm, steering wheel lock? Any advice?

An answer to this question would be very beneficial to many members as I too have the same dilemma. (Sorry 'THEFUNKYDUCK I'm not trying to high-jack your thread.)
Just wanted to give a quick input.

A Disklok is a big deterrent. Also it's Thatcham approved so it's got to be good. I have one.

sadly nothing will stop it getting nicked in some places

as people will come along with a flat bed and just drive it away so to speak

unless you chain the mini to the floor haha
