Just bought my first mini after years of wanting one - finally. I just let my heart get the better of me and I bought one... OK well after renting a brand new one for a weekend I was smitten!!
Mine is a 2005 Cooper S in Pepper White, black roof and mirrors, 5 Star alloy wheels, full leather, LSD, H&K, Xenon lights, cruise control, Chromeline exterior, side skirts, FSH and low mileage
I absolutely love it. It goes like the clappers and sticks to the road like I don't know what!!
My last car was a 206 1.4 LX, which I had for the last 6 yrs. Although nothing performance-wise compared to the MCS
, the 206 was cute and reliable - was never going to get me any
tickets though ha-ha!!
I don't really know if I will change anything on my new car. I love it the way it is, but I may change to the multi spoke alloys - although I read on here that the 5 star are lighter (does that mean faster??!!
Maybe try to retrofit some options like armrest, auto dimming mirror, folding mirrors? Depends on cost and how difficult it is!
I'm still undecided if I should put some bonnet stripes on... hmmm!!!
Anyway, before I ramble on for the rest of the night
, I'll stop here.
