Thanks for putting that on for me. If anyone has any information or sees it anywhere please pm monster and I will inform the police of any sightings.

This car has a few distinctive markings around it, something which has been photographed and would be recognisable to me even if the car was repainted. The police are aware of this so should be easy for them to identify.

This is why i've setting aside some money to invest in a tracker, cut off switch and immobiliser plus a inner wheel lock so they cant cut it off!

Just a quick update, I have not heard anything since monster was stolen in August and the insurance company has now paid out for total loss.

Really gutted for you mate. Glad the insurance has paid out.
How did it get stolen? Was it garaged, on a drive or out and about at the time?

It might be worth reaching out to the Australian / Japanese Mini clubs? Sign up and post on their boards?
