I really hope he gets it back, such a beautiful mini too! God damn thieves! Will have to keep an eye out on ebay. anything else special on the car? interior? seats? dash? steering wheel? picture of wheels? will make it easier to spot things on ebay and such websites. I saw some stuff for sale on freeads a while ago thats looked like some one had stripped down an entire mini. so many different avenues........

Well just to let you know, the police called a few days back to say they have found the car and for my friend to go and identify it, as it has been totally stripped, and the front end butchered to remove the engine.

As you can imagine he is devastated. :teehee:

Im so sorry to hear this, :teehee: makes me really sad :genius:

I know this sounds crazy, But im temped to paint pretty much everything that can be painted under my bonnet neon pink with I'm GAY AND PROUD! written all over it.


Maybe that will minimise the chances of people flogging it on!

Oh and PS, I am actually gay so its not weird me having it lol

Just seeing these post's now, I am having a think to myself about people steeling cars.
WHY!? One word ... WHY!?
I don't understand it, they wouldn't like it if us lot ganged up on them and stole their cars, but it's ok for them to do it to ours. If my Mini got stolen it would be the end of the world for me. We are best mates :dontgetit: ... as we go everywhere together now I have passed my test :thumbsup:
It makes me really angry to hear about all these mini's being stolen! :)
