It's our only car. We had one each until end of last year but we're soon both going to be fully retired so need only the one. Would LIKE two... but we only NEED one.

Haha, no, it's an mhd. I bought it as I have a very short journey to work and didn't want to coke up the MINI's engine. Free tax and still cruises at 70 on the motorway.

It's my Daily driver, but I have a trail Rig. It's a 1992 Jeep Cherokee with 35 inch tires and a 4.5 inch lift. (amongst other stuff) It was getting expensive on gas on a daily basis, so only using the jeep once in awhile.

Hi!

What an interesting question!

The family car is a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze 5 LTZ, A/T (Carbon Flash, i.e.: black). MY MINI is a 2012 Coupť Pepper White (I'm planning to upload photos soon, into the Intro section; please have some patience).

Cheers!
