    This is a very unfortunate incident Noddles, I assume you intend to find the culprit and release it into it's natural habitat to enjoy future adventures? o_O:D

    That's unfortunate Niall .
    Have you had a good look round the engine bay for the nest ( as that's what the sound deadening is for ) somewhere in the car or nearby is a nest get some traps set .
    Have a hunt around carefully for mouse droppings might give a clue where they are .

    That's hilarious =)).

    But it's not a genuine M mouse, that's a Chinese knockoff from eBay. You can tell because the colours aren't quite right :D.

    But the disclaimer always says that due to viewing on different screens the colours may appear different :thumbsup:, and the sizes could also be slightly out. This is 6" ............................. apparently=))=))

    It can happen outside too Paul,my MX5 was outside for a while and the next time I opened the bonnet there was a lovely collection of leaves in the corner of the engine bay with a mouse nest in the middle. Fortunately I'd found it before the little blighter had started eating the car.
