new to the forum and had my mini about 6 months now. I have to say in all my years of driving it is my fave ever car! I used to own a lovely MG Midget (chrome bumpers) and it had a lovely feel about it. I can honestly say that I get a similar experience driving my mini. The sound of the indicators, the half moon inside handles, the large displays...all adds to a lovely authentic feel.
Also what impressed me the most was that I am getting 47mpg from the tank. It costs me £45 to fill from empty and gives me a range on 400 miles. (this is sticking at about 70 MPH)
All in all I love it!
However horrible driving in run flats...will definitely be replacing to standard tyres once they need to be replaced
