Peugeot 206 to Mini Cooper Diesel Chili - WOW

I just wanted to introduce myself to the site, having had only two cars before (both pug 206's) I decided to bite the bullet and buy a mini!

It is a 2008 black mini chili pack with half cloth/white leather interior.

LOVE the car however have had some niggly issues to sort out.

On the drive home from picking it up I had the notorious error image of "particulate filter additive tank empty". The garage would not touch this in warranty and have left me to get it sorted, which to my surprise only comes to £160.00 from my nearest mini dealer to replace the fluid bag (luckily my car only has the one).

The drivers door window has also stopped dipping when the door opens, which I am not too fussed about as it doesn't seem to catch anything as the door shuts. Again Stratstone wanted nothing to do with this, leaving me to wonder what the 3 month warranty will actually cover. I also found the day after purchase that there was no tread left on one tyre at all, leaving me also to wonder how good an MOT the car got from the garage the day I picked it up.

I am averaging 60mpg around town and motorway miles and the panoramic roof really finishes the car off for me. Tip to all car buyers, avoid black cars they are a nightmare to clean. As ocd as I am with polishing/waxing the car never seems to stay clean for long!

I aim to put on white wing mirror caps along with white bonnet stripes, although I am not yet sure on which variation I like. I think I might also upgrade the sound system as compared to the standard peugeot speakers mine are pitiful!

What would be the best bulb upgrades? As good as they currently are compared to the 206, I know that a higher quality set will change night driving altogether but have no other experience of a mini.

As I say apart from issues from the dealer I love this car! I wonder what took me so long to decide I like minis?!
