Newbie Mini Clubman 08 owner.

Hi folks,

I have taken ownership of an 08 Mini Clubman Cooper Diesel this morning. It's my first BMW MINI having owned a couple of classic minis in the past and missed the thrill of "mini-motoring". The car came with a short warranty so I would really appreciate advice on anything I should look out for, as I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary during my test drive. Just noticed the Boost cd player is skipping so I'll try get the (non-mini) dealer to get it checked.... is this a common fault in a stationary car?!
It has just shy of 67K miles on clock, not sure if it's got a chilli pack. I'll post pics of it in its current state. My sons are desperate for me to add a bit of personality to it (finances permitting) so any suggestions for my to-do list would be brilliant thanks. (They want viper stripes but not sure whether a 40-something woman getting out of it would look daft, albeit I adore cars so don't really care!)

Thanks in advance everyone..... looking forward to being part of the mini2 family.

Angela.
