Make a facebook stolen ad and get people to post it to their profiles. I think you will be surprised at the number of people willing to repost, getting the alert out there

I liked the above post because it could have been worse..... but I wish you got it back undamaged. (better still not stolen at all!)

What the hell did they do to it?!! Hand brake it into the curb or something?! Really feel gutted for you about the damage but it all sounds fixable

Cant understand what they must have been doing with it to cause that damage... unless they were doing what the morons were doing around here a few years ago which was to steal a car, go to a car park and put a brick on the throttle and the car in gear, turn the steering wheel and then start it up through the window and run. utterly moronic.

That's just awful, getting it back is one thing but it must be demoralising to see it so abused. I feel for you man.

So glad you got him back buddy. I hope the scum bags that done this are brought to justice but somehow I doubt it in this softly softly approach culture to criminals.

I'd go through the roof if someone even scratched my mini.. can't imagine how you feel.

At least you've got it back, shame about the damage though :( but it could've been worse! you could've found it burnt out somewhere.

It makes you wonder what is going through their heads when they even think about doing it. How could any parent sleep at night knowing that they have brought their children up to do that?!

So glad you got it back mate. Shame about the damage. Any updates on that?
