New R56 Pedals are common across the range for all those wanting dual controls.

Sounds like a bargain, very pretty in red or black, also all VW underneath.

So I am looking at Fiesta Zetec 1.6TDCI at about 10350 , other option is the Seat Ibiza FR 1.9TDI ( very well specced ) about 12400.
Seem good ideas for replacement cars - I've ordered a cooper D as an ADI car and I must admit that its not cheap. I'm trying to use every mind trick on myself to justify getting it .. good fuel economy, cheap car tax and the image which helps as well. I've only had my Fiat Grande Punto Sporting 130 bhp diesel for 7 months & taking a real hit on it re part-ex & having the duals removed etc - but I had a cooper and a cooper S a few years ago before I became an ADI , and I just loved my Minis too much !

Is there no news on a OneD now that both the CooperD and one are about to launch??

That may suit driving schools better budgetwise!

Dealer will never tell you anything unless it's been sanctioned!

Will have to see if any sources on here know different!
