Same here on the money front, I think the new MCSC
comes out in around 18 months to two years and to be honest I don't want to invest any more money in our car (apart from the odd silicone hose Etc.).
I am sure Roland down at GTT already has plans for the turbo version, he is already an expert at tuning the Audi TT so lets wait and see what he can squeeze out of the MCSC
when it arrives.
At the biginning of 2007 Continental car Tours will start advertising the next France Mini adventure, get yourself signed up and have a ball blasting around France with a bunch of other BMW Mini's. 2005 had 50 Mini's because the event was advertised in GoMini mag, unfortunately the mag has gone bust but despite this around 18 Mini's went to France in 2006 and we still had a good time.
