Hi guys, thought I would introduce myself, do a bit of research.
I've not made my mind completely, but a mini is in the top 2. Always loved them.
I've got a WRX and a lotus at the moment. WRX is going soon but, hence potential for a mini or a diesel scirocco.
Being a petrol head, I'd be inclined to go for the JCW
. I know very little at present about running costs, reliability, so need to get reading. I hear good things about the cooper SD?
