United-Kingdom Itch finally scratched!

Hi All,

Ever since I was given a Mini Cooper Hatchback way back in 2005 by BMW for the weekend while my M3 was being serviced, I knew I had to at some stage get myself a Mini!

Over the following years as I chopped and changed cars (serial car changer I'm afraid ) I always somehow kept missing out and ended up with something else!

It was mint and I was very impressed with it, being an 09 I didn't expect it to look so immaculate inside and out!

The only blemish was that the front tyres although brand new, the dealer had put on a budget set rather then match up with the rears which have the Dunlop SP Sport 01's on them with plenty tread.

So the rest as they say is history, I finally picked her up a ...
