United-Kingdom Proud new convertible owner :)

Hi guys,
With the excuse of my wife needing a smaller car to ferry our kids around, I decided the perfect car would be a Mini Cooper S as my Dad had one when they were first released and I remember thinking it was the next best thing to a go-kart.....
When my wife saw a convertible she fell in love with it so that was it: the fun of a Cooper S + the top-down fun of a soft top.
A quick deal was done with a local dealer in S. London and here it is - an 04 R52 Cooper S Convertible with 50k on the clock + FSH.
Drives like new & in cracking condition.
Can't wait to get it out on some twisties (w/o the kids!)
See you all out there!
Cheers, Hilton

Thanks for the warm welcome MLM & mab
Sun's been shining down here in Sarf London so top down driving was compulsory this morning!
This car gives me a buzz every time I get in it.
It's mad isn't it that certain cars just give you a grin. Really puts the fun back into motoring again.
The kids were screaming with joy in the back with the top down - their new favourite thing.
Have just booked a break to the Isle of Wight in it for their Easter hols so already excited about getting on those fab driving roads there.
See what those marketing guys meant when they said 'Mini Adventure'!

Cheers, Hilton
