Hi Guys,

I know i'm new to this forum but can anyone help me by keeping an eye out for my mini.

I only purchased it 6 weeks ago from Mini Technique near Blackpool and someone stole it from outside our house on Friday 10th June from St.Helens in Merseyside. Its not been seen since.

It was a beautiful example of a 1996 (P reg) Mini Cooper in Night Fire Red with a white roof. The thing that make it really stand out is the Chrome Wheel Arches.

If anyone has any information about its whereabouts please get in touch as I would hate for it to be broken up.

Oh no! This is awful news mate :errr: Post threads in the stolen Mini and your local sections, and get the word out to any clubs local to you.

Hope it gets found safe and sound :(

*******!

sorry to hear this, had a similar mini a couple of years back, it was stolen, but turned up in the local estate with only a damaged ignition lock.

good luck on finding it.

Damn, dude. That Mini is in beautiful condition, too. :errr:

It's threads like this that make me want to spend money on security like a tracker instead of spending the money on performance/cosmetics.

If you use a nice classic Mini as a Daily Driver and park in public places it is essential to fit extra security and imobilsers..............even kids know a classic Mini is very easy to break into and 'hot wire' and they will always be the first target for low-lifes and thieves when parked and surrounded by modern cars which can not even be started or driven without the keys.

Gutted man :thumbsup: have you thought about going down to where you got it from? There's been a few thefts recently where the garage have a set of keys and then steal the car back

Your Mini is absolutely stunning, and the same colour as my Rover 114. So shiney!!

Did you have any luck getting it back? I'd love to know.
