United-Kingdom Gone and done it

Well I am the owner of 2 Classic mini`s a 1979 racing green and a 79 mini 30.

I always said I would never buy a BMW Mini

However driving by a garage the other day we spotted a 2003 BMW Mini Cooper S in Dark silver metallic and black with Chilli pack, well we stopped our car and went and had a look this led to a test drive then back to the garage for some bartering and we left the garage the proud owners of a 10 year old BMW Mini with 57,000 miles on the clock, full service history, all the past mot`s and history 12 months current mot (no advisories)

So far we love the car (runflats as well) and I guess only time will tell if we have made an expensive impulsive purchase or not.

So It`s Hi folks we are proud to be part of your community and I am sure we will have plenty of questions as time goes on .

There are quite a few on most of the new and classic Mini Forums who own both these days.....once you have a nice classic you don't want to drive it every day especially in the winter or the rust starts appearing again!
