Ahh man that sucks, its good its back in a reasonable condition (could be a lot worse) but I know how you feel. How dare they touch it and the cheek etc. The swear filter wont let me convey the anger towards the theiving scum, but hopefully you get the point!

Hope you get it sorted out soon. Are you going to bother going through the insurance?

nah... they'll proberly write it off.. plus if they do "fix" it i'll only undo it again to the way i want it, so i might as well do it out my own pocket and get it looking the way i want it to the 1st time..


..and yes i would circumvent the swear filter but i dont want to be banned just because some.. breathe, breathe... kids tried to steel my car

Ageist...

I like to think it was troop of grannies out for a joyride after scooping bingo winnings, to confirm check for boiled sweet wrappers in the ashtray...

But you're probably right.

to quick and easy.. i'dd like to tie their feet together and drag them around the local roads naked for a few hours at speed and see if they want to say sorry and pay for the damage..

.. shooting them just means they get off easy

That's awful, feel really sorry for you.

Looks like they've hit something with the right hand headlight/wing/bumper, I'd be giving it a second look as your "list" hasn't mentioned any of this pannel damage apart from the bonnet...

Sounds silly but, have you informed the police?

body work will be sorted by colin (cant remember his tmf name) so all those panels and what-not i'll buy wen he needs them.. plus its a good time to debumper the front end! :thumbsup:


Doh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how my name can you forget!

Ok, Front is straighter now, grill i can repair with new slats if you want, might have a headlamp to match your surviving one, will beat out the floor pan for now till the new one arrives, bonnet will also be beaten out till you supply the F/G one. while i am in the mood, i might patch the spare wiper holes too. side window is now in and the car is locked and secure for the night.

drop your bits off tomorrow and i will see if i can get it drivable by the weekend.

the floor pan got bashed up where the little *u*ts drove it up a bank near a field and took out 2 post trying to hot wire it to go for a ride...

but my baby-boy is in good hands now..

its been a long term project but the silver lining here is, now its off the road being sorted i may as well have everything done to it b4 it goes back on the road.. so its more or less a finished project (if there is such a thing) :) :)

wow that really sucks :) how bad is the damage?

i'll up load the pictures in a sec.. not really to bad, but its just heart breaking ya'know?



Foul, thieving, loathsome little toerags! May whoever did this to your Min suffer the fate of St Erasmus (look it up, it's a corker).

I really feel for you - I'd be inconsolable if this happened to my Mini. I hope yours is fixed and on the road again soon.
