This is getting silly have the police no Idea whos doing this as it must be a massive operation. Does your work not have CCTV??


no...we have had this conversation with them.

so checked cctv with the vegetable man across the the car park and he has got some very grainy footage of the incident. 7:07 silver estate what seems to be a3 series estate pulls up next to my car. Someone gets out unable to make them out footage is far too grainy but within 6 minutes they are leaving the car park and heading left down Pershore Road. Police said if the footage is grainy not worth collecting.

Starting to wonder , if it's a gang , with a lock up ,

nicking 4-5 mini's swapping noticeable parts between each of them

Wheels , grills , lights , arches , seats , carpets , dash , door mirrors , etc

spray the roof a different colour - GB badge on the back

put them on ebay , who would know ?

then move on to a different area , different cars

If you look at an ebay mini - you first think , that's mine - then dismiss it because it's got different wheels / dash / seats

all just a guess

If I were a criminal (I'm not) it's what I would do

It's getting really serious, surely the police should be taking this seriously.



I know I'd be ******* myself if I had a Mini as my daily :(

Looks like a 3 series estate to me


I thought it did as well, probably had false plates on anyway but if we can find anymore footage from the other thefts it might help point towards 1 group of individuals doing this

Its strange that theyre takin white ones.....


used mine daily mate....so gutted. Just need to keep an eye out on ebay for them to see what pops up. I've had my mate pass on word to his dad and to the other local garages in the Stirchley, Kings Norton area to be wary of any minis coming in.

Its horrible to think but I just dont think they are stupid enough to put them on ebay :(

They might do a few in one area then go somewhere completely different and do another group..

I remember reading a story of a member getting his mini put into an artic lorry/flatbed with sides on it (that sorta thing) and then getting it driven off!
