Hi,

Just made an account on this forum as my beloved Mini Cooper Sport 200 in Tahiti Blue has been stolen. The scumbags took out the windscreen, and pushed it away.

Here's a pic, please look out for it.

Thanks

I'll keep an eye out as well mate, why can't bastards just leave other people cars alone esp ones like mini's which normally have a fair amount of time and love from the owners invested in them :( hope you get it back soon

 

Also hope you don't mind I've posted it up on my fb page has the majority of my mates are from Bexley or the surrounding areas so if they see anything I'll let you know

Yes, near the village. It's unfair how we work for this and it gets taken away. One was stollen in Wilmington I see, so maybe it was the same people. About 6 months ago, the badges were stolen, and I pay to live in a nice neighbour hood! Just worried as I have many other cars!

Thank you, was beautiful. The police was round just a sec ago, the window trim they left behind had no prints on it :( Going to go round to the local scrap yards, dealers and leave pics of the car incase it comes in as a trade or for scrap. Thanks for your responses, I just don't think it will be found: or if it is a year later stripped for it's mint parts and as a rusty shell :(

Words fail me. I really hope you get it back, I can imagine how upset you'd be about it.

They didn't take the key, it has an emobilizer so it won't be sold on as a car. But probably sold on for parts, I understand the cost of some of the parts, being original. Such a shame, will miss it kinda put me off them now, after the other car being crashed by a family member starting to lose it with cars!

Right. I went to bed at 11 and woke at 4 to get my race car yesterday evening. I got ready which took 10 mins and went outside. I noticed the car was gone of my drive, which is full of cars (5). They must come by my house every day, as it is always boxed in, yesterday it was vulnerable. They took the rear windscreen out and released the handbrake and rolled it down the road to a transponder I suppose. I know they didn't start it as it's very, very loud. I went in and called 101 and the cops arrived. They lefts the rear window trim behind, so that was finger print checked, but with no success. It's unlikely I will get my baby back, everyone is so upset. I heard about your car going missing, such a shame, seems like they are after these sort of minis, ironic as it was my b-day today and my parents got me a mini card!
Such a shame :-(
