I would just really like to say huge thanks to Geoff and Chris for all of their help today in helping out when my MINI needed a helping hand.

You guys saved my bacon.. given my little knowledge of the actual mechaincs of a car.... sorry the wheel was a bit dirty.

So again... Thanks Guys.

Also thanks to the nice guy who lent me the use of his jack (only one at the meet).... sorry, but I have forgotten your name.

Yeah i wouldnt mind getting a jack too

So what happened today Dan?
Well.. first off 276 posts... you are on fire... lucky I backed out of the 500 Race!!

Only a minor thing, a stone got caught up between the brake disc and the disc guard on the left front which causes a horible scratching aluminium type noise to come from the wheel...... the sound is really bad for such a little problem.

Was not a big thing, but Chris and Geoff knew the problem so they helped me get the (very dirty) wheel off and helped get the stone out (which was ****y by the way).

The big problem was the lack of Jack..... the group buy is a bit of a joke we had today, but all in all, probably not a bad idea.

First time ive heard of something like that, what were u guys doing!? Rally your MINIs on gravel roads :D
Not at all, I was by myself just driving to th mini meet, came off a main road in to the park where the meet was (all on bitumen by the way) and then it happened.

Strange but true.... maybe one for the xfiles.

Good to see there is a great camaraderie between all Mini owners!!

Club or not we have a very well oiled machine in operation... It is activities like this that make me proud to be a mini owner - be it a damaged one:rolleyes:.

Great to see Chris and Geoff jumped in the help Dan get back on the road minus the squealing disc.

I've had that happen on my S once, and on my Audi A3 a few times - I found that going in reverse a bit often gets the rocks out :)

And I've also been in a number of situations where not having a jack in your Cooper S is bloody annoying :mad:
