"It's got weird doors, innit"

Comment from an old man to his wife about my car, yesterday evening!
Even funnier when I actually unlocked my weird door car and I smiled at him - he looked a tad embarrassed! Hey ho, each to their own. This is definitely a Marmite car.

I wish I had got a Mini sooner. I feel I have wasted 20 years driving <sob>

I love that - "a Marmite car" - you're right though

Was he talking about the clubdoor or the back doors btw?

I felt like that when I got my first MINI, no other car compares does it?

He was talking about the back doors!

In hindsight I should have shown him the Club door

On the other side of the Marmite car thing, I had a postman practically drooling over it! He asked for a tour of it

Ha ha! I won't let my colleague in it as he has been critical (and I don't like him). Although I suspect it is more envy - I work with 5 guys and we have all had new cars in the last 8 months except for him. Plus they are all very nice cars!

Mmm, I've seen a couple of DS Clubmans (Clubmen?) and they look great! Have to say I was quite taken by the brown one too Quite retro!

I love the back doors, they rock

Flower, what colour's yours?

Mine is PW/B with bonnet stripes (Cooper S). I haven't seen that many but all the ones I have seen in the various colours look great. Not that I am biased towards the car, oh no!

Mmmmm, I bet PW/B looks awesome! Retro colour for a retro car, love it! Health to enjoy it anyway

EDIT: Actually saw one today, and it looked soooo good

I've given 3 guided tours of my clubman s so far, two to mini drivers, one to some window smudgers in the high street, everyone loves it. Hot choc was so the right choice! It even looks like marmite!
