Our BRG Mini cooper (M948 DEU) was stolen from just round the corner of our house. Taken between 12-4pm Sunday 27/03/11.
It was locked & alarmed. No glass found. Sounds like there's alot of it about! Just putting it out there in the hope someone sees it. Owned since new in 1995 and has just has bodywork rebuild so looked good. 60400 miles. Would be so happy to get it back. Have had it longer than the kids... :D

That's not good news bud - whereabouts in Bristol are you - will keep a really close eye out, worth scanning ebay, gumtree etc maybe. Gutted for you, fingers crossed it turns up.

Having also owned one of ours from new and also having had him longer than our kids and before we were married, I can totally empathise with your loss. While I would be very upset if we had any of our other minis written off or stolen, I would be devastated if we lost Henry. I really hope you get yours back.

Hi, we're in Cliftonwood area, the car was parked on Cliftonwood Road. Sadly the only pics we have are hard copy not digital, but she's a BRG, one set of spots, walnut dash, standard wheel arches and has a little grey seal inside which my late dad gave me for my 21st along with my first mini. I am unbelievably sad. M948DEU if anyone sees her. Thanks.

Here she is - just after the bodywork had been done at the end of last year.

I caught myself becoming blasé over these too frequent theft reports. So have a topic bump as penance & let's hope for a happy ending.

Thanks for all the suggestions, just have to keep hoping. Am contacting any postings asking for minis to warn as well as trying all the 'usual' sites. Find myself looking at sidestreets as I pass, just incase!
Car was stolen in Clifton Wood, Bristol. Police have said as there's no evidence & no CCTV around here that they won't be investigating. Very nice though unlike the insurance company, but that's another story...
Can't be that many BRG in Bristol, though could have been driven out of the city.

She was alarmed and immobilised, that worked for 16 years.
I'm doing everything I can think off but no sight nor sound of her so far.

Thanks for all your kind words, still trying to be hopeful.
