Has anyone every brought a 'stolen recovered' Mini.

Whats the crack as far as insurance goes, and whats the difference between this and a 'Vcar' or 'CatD' - coz i read somewhere that an insurance company will only every pay out once on these - which basically means they are uninsurable.

Could someone fill me in with the pitfalls?

I saw that too... I think if you plan to keep the car and run it into the ground you'll be fine, suppose it would make an ideal track day car with mods...

I have heard that about insurance too, but I thought it was only in the case when you keep a stolen recovered then rebuild it yourself (someone on here will have the official line i'm sure).... I doubt theyd sell for anything at all if you cant insure them, a 12k loss if someone steals it from you makes it seem a very big expensive risk.
