just to make sure all have been reported to bournville police station?
if you use local garages just ask them to keep an eye out, I've done so with most of the main ones on Pershore Road
Any cctv that might be of any use? Think we are looking for a silver bmw estate 3 series albeit it is probably stolen as well or running false plates

not mine, trim on my doors is plain black, bucket seats 3 hole dash. Also rear passenger side panel had a bit of paint flaking off and you could see the blue underneath. That massive flaw is what im hoping is going to help me spot my car

bit of an update had a call today to say they are investigating the recent thefts. I've got a name of an officer if anyone wants to pass on info pm me. If there is likely to be any cctv footage you might want the police to have a look at please forward.

Insurance company are being ..."not very nice" so I'm out of pocket, lost my pride and joy and some scumbags think they are going to get away with it

bit of an argument of what the car is worth, modifications were all declared. Had someone ask "what makes you think its worth that much?" which I found very rude.

plus paying of the rest of my years premium (has just been renewed a 2 months ago) with what the insurance company think my cars actually worth I doubt I will see anything back

Dude..best bet is look in all usual mags,ebay etc..find a car that is as close to yours in every detail including mods and show insurance people...that way if it was worth for example £2000 then you may get some reward......its only an idea but maybe worth a shot..! :-)

our mini has an agreed insurance value so they cant argue about coughing up if anything did happen to it, good luck with finding your cars guys, will keep an eye out around solihull area..!

...that looks a hell of a lot like mine. Apart from the usual cosmetics that could be swapped relatively easily mine didn't have a centre speedo or push button start. Brierly hill which is close as well...

what do you think?

I'd get someone to go with you that knows your car too, and check all the usual places that make your mini your own!
