United-Kingdom Advice needed!

Please explain how it's possible to stay away from the red line in these bundles of joy? I have had a boxster s, access to a wealthy relative's R8 (very trusting relative I may add) neither of which come remotely close to this for smiles per mile. It's fantastic... BMW I applaud you. This is how you get a nice car without making people jealous and hateful. Yes it isn't perfect but its closer than anything else I've driven and feels alive. Clarkson is always harping on about character and soul in cars and that is where this little car beats every thing else I can think of. Tremendous! Apologies but I'm in love and it barely gets warm before I'm reaching for the red line once again!

They are brilliant fun. Sport button rocks to.

I've just added a forge BOV to mine so I get a turbo blow off noise. Very immature of me but makes the smiles even bigger when you are giving it beans.

Glad your enjoying

Agreed, its the closest thing to my old Westfield that I've ever driven, in fact it's probably better as you don't get as wet!
(Added) mine isn't the S though, but still good fun.

Team Bunny. Depth before Dishonour.

Next thing I want is some mods... Forgive me if I'm wrong but I love the idea of a JCW tuning kit. I think the mini is fast enough (almost) but I fancy more noise and even more fun if that's at all possible without adding lots of torque steer into the mix... I also like the idea that these kits are fully approved and tested (dont really fancy risking warranty or reliability. Is anyone doing deals on the kits for the LCI MCS R56 at the mo? And has anyone got one of these fitted? I'd quite like some opinions if poss?
