Hi. Some of you will have seen a post from me before, when I was asking for people to fill in my survey for an A-level project on the MINI before Christmas. At that time though, I was very busy with college work and didn’t have time to do a proper introduction. Now I have though, so here it is!

I’m a massive MINI fan, and have been since early 2001, when I saw the pre-launch pictures and information in magazines. I don’t have one yet, as I am at college and not working, but have been saving up and am nearly there! I’ve recently driven a Cooper and found it excellent, and can see why the MINI has had so many raving reviews. I’m not sure when I’ll eventually get one though, because I plan to go to university in September and wouldn’t be able to keep it during this time. I might go for a One until then, or will have to wait until afterwards and get a Cooper S. That’ll be a long time though!

Back to my MINI project, I said that I would publish the results of the questionnaire on here for you lot to see. I have finished the section of the project based on this now, so can do it soon. I got about 12 responses from here, out of the total of 23 that I have. This isn’t that big a sample, so if anyone else wants to answer the questionnaire over the next couple of weeks I will add it to the data I already have, which will improve the quality and accuracy, before publishing the results. I will put the questionnaire following this post.

If anyone has any questions, comments, suggestions or anything please feel free.

Thank you,

The best way I found, was to do as described below, putting the answers in a private message to me:
· Put the question number followed by the letter of the answer that you want to give for each question, eg. 1a 2c…
· Where there are two answers, just put the two letters after the question number in the correct order, eg. 4gb.
· Where there are written answers, please type them after the relevant question.
· For question 7, where a score out of ten for each factor is given, can you put the question number, followed by each letter with a score number after it, eg. 7 a7 b9 c10…

I hope you can understand this, anything along these lines will be fine.
