Last week I ordered a Mini Cooper Countryman, and I can't wait to get it!
I first owned a Mini Cooper about 7 years ago, which I then traded in to get a new Mini Cooper S. After 4 great years with the MCS
I reluctantly traded it in for a 2nd hand Mercedes A-Class. The reason behind that madness was that I was setting up a new business and needed to free up cash...trading in the Cooper S freed up what I needed. My old Mini Cooper S has been on my mind ever since I had to see it go, and when just before Christmas the Mercedes ended up costing a lot of money to MOT and service, I thought it was about time I changed it given that the new business is up and running and doing well. Off I went to the local Mini dealership 'just for a look'...and 2 days later I placed an order for a Mini Cooper Countryman! Couldn't quite stretch to the Cooper S version or the chilli pack, but I've gone for the Pepper pack and upgraded to 17" alloys, Royal Grey with black roof, and added in a few other bits such as white indicator lights, chrome interior etc. It should arrive end of Feb...seriously can't wait to get back into a Mini! :-D
