Any chance of a quick picture of the oak dash? Cannot decide between that and piano black.
It's sunny today for the first time since Friday so a quick wash and I'll do some more pics later. I'm delighted with the combination of beige leather with the wood dash, gear knob and MFSW and can't see how piano black would work for me. But that obviously depends on personal tastes and the body colour so ... !

Rachel

Rachel has a terrible back and will need an operation. Steve nicholson is kindly handing the car over to us on Saturday. It should land in Lincoln today, insurance is done, retention certificate for our plate is at the dealership - just want the car now. have read lots about variable fuel economy. Has anyone got anywhere near the government fuel economy figures for the Dooper Clubman?

The last I knew was that she was awaiting the results of an MRI scan so your update isn't good news.

Steve is a nice guy - if not quite as beautiful as Jess

I've uploaded some interior pics to BRG MINI Clubman D - a photoset on Flickr

(All taken with a cheap 0.38X ultra wide macro lens on my Minolta Z6 so there's a bit of distortion but not so much as to spoil the shots too much - I hope!)

Wow - that's a great interior/exterior combo. Congrats! And thanks for the dash closeups.

Not quite as classy perhaps, but more fun, more convenient, my wife is happy to drive it, and the running costs will be less than half. And it's surprisingly similar in some ways, apart from the D noise at low speeds - but I don't notice it on the open road, when the Jag was very similar due to wind and tyre noise.

And the Jag couldn't compete with the Clubman's handling on twisties!

Sorry for the delayed reply but I've only just got my car back with Soper's fix of the DAB. (The problem was just an aerial connection apparently.)

My initial impression is that the DAB tuner is superb as it auto-seeks quickly, even inside a brick garage, and gives the sound quality I can't get here off FM, including the BBC6 you mentioned.

a superb looking car, the BRG looking very classy as always

I think you've definitely captured the MINI Jag effect and the interior and exterior go together so well.

Enjoy......
