that does look like his, and they could have out new wheels and stripes on it.
also it is only a 1 day auction and the way they want to get rid of it quick.

It does look very suspicious that it is in the same neck of the woods on a 24 hour auction with no numberplates and a vagueish description. It must have had quite a bit of work done overnight though, and the colour looks slightly different. I hope it is the one though.

just an idea did your mini have an alloy hand brake gripper?? and do you recognise that gear gaiter as things like this distinguish a mini from one to another but i would check

Have you checked to see if there is any CCTV coverage in the areas surrounding where the car was stolen from, garages, houses, link roads and the like.

was on my way into work this morning and i ran out of fuel so i pulled up on the rainford bypass just before the lights on the eastlancs and when i came back to put petrol in it my mini was gone :errr: i cannot even describe how i feel any info please let me know or email me


I know how you feel mate. Had mine stolen last friday from the town centre. Police reckon someone is targeting minis in the local area. I'll keep an eye out just in case.

Heres mine that was taken

It was a beautiful example of a 1996 (P reg) Mini Cooper in Night Fire Red with a white roof. The thing that make it really stand out is the Chrome Wheel Arches.
