I know I'm not in the UK, but after my 24 month wait my Clubby Chili Red is scheduled for production this Wednesday, the 16th. I don't think he'll make it in time for the U.S. Launch on Feb. 16th, but I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed. I can't wait to see some of them on the road. I've had Clubby envy of all of you for months now.
Congrats to all of you with Minis of any sort. Love them!
All i'll say for now is that it's a Clubman S & a lot of the Works stuff for the hatch can go on the Clubman! (although i can't wait for more JCW or aftermarket parts to appear!) although i'm sure the salesman was jumping for joy when i left the showroom after the amount i've spent on it :redface: I borrowed the salesman's Clubman S Demo for 24 hours & that was enough to convince me & the clubdoor is perfect for getting your mates in & out of the back after a night out round Leeds!
You may yet see it as i'm keeping it for more modifications! My friend & i are setting up our own garage soon mainly for repairs & tuning, so i needed a way of transporting boxes of parts & the Clubman fits the bill! Hopefully the Clubman should be ready by Summer if all goes well! I'll post the spec at some point soon too! Even though i'm now broke after speccing it up! & putting a deposit on another car which we found for sale! lol (some of you may recognise it! i'll post pics in a bit! - it's serious toy!:biggrin: i'm really exited about it!)
It was just over the 30k mark altogether , i know it's a lot of money to spend on a Mini but it's something different & it's practical for what we want to use it for + i've got some plans lined up for it to make it look & go even better!
We have Covered over 5000 miles in the last 3 months including 2 trips around The Lake Distric and Somerset Devon and Dorset Last week .
The car ran perfectly .
Returned an average fule cosumption of 52mpg thats a mixture of Towns, country lanes ,twisty B roads fast A roads and Motorways...
Hi to all ,
Almost ready to put engine back together. (2011 mini clubman n47c16a engine bmw).
looking for torque setting on big end bolts ,head stretch bolts. also what oil is recommended +capacity.....
Thanks in advance and for help so far ...
I would like to disable the warning sound when I am reversing. I have to reverse out of a tight spot under my house while we are doing construction and the sound annoys me so much I can't concentrate on what I need to do. Have any of you done this? Do you know of a way how? Thanks.
I have MINI Clubman D (2010). The issue is with rear door. When I start to drive always pop up message that doors are open, but both of them are closed. This is very annoying specially in trafic jams..
Is anymone who could suggest what is wrong or how to fix it?
Also rear windows...
