im sure that white one off ebay is totally legit, and im cerntainly not suggesting otherwise, but brierley hill (where its advertised as being from) is very close to me, and i have never seen it about, i used to work at a mini specialists which was the other side of that area too, so drove around that neck of the woods allot.

just seems a little odd to me thats all. i would have spotted it with those wheels on too, i started a thread about them so would deffinately have stuck in my mind!

Hope it turns up soon.

Out of curiosity, how many of these stolen Minis had some type of security on them like wheel clamp, alarm, immobiliser and so on?

do you have a pic of your sisters mini? fingers crossed you get it back.

I have spoken to the police in croydon and from what they said it happening to lots of cars not just minis , in the past week they have stolen 6 ford transits in the area i live in alone (one of which was my dads) they seem to turn up with a recovery truck and just take them as its easier than braking in, only thing the police said may help stop or slow them down is put a wheel clamp on it :wacko:
hope this is of some help

They have always been easy to steal..

Mini's have always been stolen - nothing new I'm afraid.

wel im so glad we didnt replace our mini . were goin to get another within 2 weeks auto thinking maybe they wanted manuals hey ho the lying scum bad bastards are taking autos too. What the ******* is wrong with ppeople stealing what other people spend so much time doing up to be thier pride and joy eh . I hope theses bastartds are caught hung drawn and quartered or maybe left to die slowlybleeding to death . Theyve no idea the hassle it causes and heart ache . Our mini stolen 1 oct was my girl friends after id done it up for her . she drives her grand children round iin it for gods sake . If you read this and you are the guilty party because in sure youll read this hopong to keep ahead of the police , you know where you took our mwhite mini blue roof have the balls to come back and i will leave you bastards bleeding to death . we all need to give the police more grief because we had to tell our investigating lady that 2 others had been stolen the 2 days after ours. In this day n age id have thought the police would actually have the intelegance to be able to communicate I guess not eh. this has caused sreious arguments here and i am sick n tired of the police not taking any god damn notice
