So today I took the plunge a bought a Mini Cooper SD hatch.
I have had performance cars all my life including 911s, GTRs and now the latest Evo but my daily driver is a Golf GT TDI which is getting long in the tooth, so I figured I would buy something that would be economical and fun to drive.
I spent ages looking at everything from BMWs to Mercs to VWs and Audis but nothing was any good and really made me smile, I had almost given up as my wife has what I thought was the only diesel fun car to drive a BMW 1 series coupe that was until I got told to about how good minis are . . . . I was like, yeah Mini, great, sure.
OMG how awesome are they, just brilliant!!!!!.
I popped down to have a look at a Cooper D but after seeing and driving the SD I was smitten and bought it there and then.
So I should be picking her on Monday, Cooper SD, Chilli pack and a few other toys. Well impressed, what a cracking little beast.
It's pretty much perfect, needs lowering and the wheels need painting black - apart from that she's spot on.
