Now Mrsmeds is talking about getting a car of her own- which has to be an auto...so i'm thinking


if.....i can find a Mini cooper s-works or Grand Prix, with low enough milage, should I sell the clubby to fund 2 new vehicles and go back to basics hmmmmm........

the chance to get another works 90 bhp is just too tempting, especially one thats been cossetted. It will be almost as good as new.

But then if you go driving it you'll be taking all that value away from it, such a dilema, buy something so mint its stunning and just look at it or drive it and loose a packet:confused:

Surely its much better to get something that holds it value at a nice level say 4k that you can enjoy by driving it and only have to maintain it to keep that value;)

RSP or a 35 or a Paul Smith for that kind of money would be my choice, or if you want to spend more like 10k get a convertible, those are holding nicely:)

i do most day to day driving in my Nemo van now :) :(
But you'd still be torn come the weekend though if you should drive it or trailer it about;)

There have been some mint RSP's on sale recently, with not even 100 miles on them, they went for about 9k, oh I'd have loved one of those, but then how can you enjoy it as every mile would be taking away what you had paid out for:eek:

Go for a driving car Si, something you can enjoy without having to worry about how you drive it, but something thats not loosing any value;)
