My beautiful 1998 Rover Mini Cooper was stolen in Bristol last night (16th May 2019). It was BR Green at the time of theft. I guess it is already being resprayed. It is, however, quite easily spottable because it has recently been restored with a new heritage shell and has thick anti-rust treatment on underside. Please be suspicious if offered for sale a late mini with unusually good body work. I know realistically I am unlikely to find him but am devastated as have had him for 20 years.

I will keep an eye out here in brighton for anything suspiciously similar offered for sale locally or to local club members
With the L2B this weekend - it might be offered at the show so heres hoping it can be seen

Hi - thanks so much for replies. it's R905 NKV. He's BR Green with white roof but no bonnet stripes. 4 spots on front. Also, there is a kill switch in the boot under the washer bottle - even if they take it out, traces of it should show up. Interesting to know that it's not just mine - there are at least 2 more minis living within a mile of me - will warn owners.

Thanks - yes, suspicious it's gone just in time for show and rally season. Was looking forward to 60th celebrations.
