    Can't knock the MINI at all, had mine for nearly 18 months and it's a fantastic drive and cheap to run car. :-bd

    Best of all if you open the bonnet and look you will find a badge which says "Built by BMW". Built exceptionally well by BMW in my opinion. Shame I have the French agricultural diesel engined version.

    Bet you'll have a job finding as good a crowd as us lot, Swamps!!! :ymhug: ;)

    We had a mini 1000 in 1992, which I suped up, by increasing the horsepower of the engine from 40bhp to 105. :D Unfortunately the camshaft was so wild, it was a devil of a job to keep it in tune, #:-s besides which, our 5 year old was always car sick in it! ~x(
    It was an impressive looking little car in Metallic Air Force Blue, with a matching eagle emblazoned on the sun roof. ^:)^

    Love it :D my daughter left her mini here for a week when she went on holiday recently, it's not the Cooper but it was nippy and so much fun to drive.

    Loved the retro interior and it was like driving a go cart... good choice :coolsteer)
