Will keep my eyes peeled.
How annoying, why do people do it. It's such a stupid thing to do. "steel a car" makes me really angry. Why are there people like that out there?

minis now are rarely stolen for joy riding, these thieves probably know how much minis are worth, especially in parts.. so steal them to order to break down and make massive profit off of someones pride and joy. sad but true! but hope he gets it back! will keep my eyes pealed though on ebay and such

sorry about your lost mate i hope you find it safe and sound its a real shame non mini fans dont understand how inportant the cars are to the owners thevies should have something taken of equal sentermental value from them when they are! found.

i dont mean to afend anyone that has had a mini stolen but i always remove the battery over night and remove the batter cable if im parked up town lets face it no power no go i have removed coil as well the sort that will steel a mini are the sort that wont no where the battery is or where the bonit relise is they would be stunded for hours i no people have alarms and bits but i perfer a smashed window and no laptop (i dont leave a laptop or anything else of value in my car) stolen then a car.


what have the police said about it to you?

i no the police will be looking and they ant as bad as people say but i find its always a good idea to hasle them for information they are always too bussy to contact you but they cant tell you to go away if you pop to them once a week.
