Comment from an old man to his wife about my car, yesterday evening! :p
Even funnier when I actually unlocked my weird door car and I smiled at him - he looked a tad embarrassed! Hey ho, each to their own. This is definitely a Marmite car.

I wish I had got a Mini sooner. I feel I have wasted 20 years driving <sob>

mrsmeds still dosn't like it, she says its ugly and the back doors sound like biscuit tins being shut. But she does like the extra space.
Have told her she can walk everywhere if she wants

He was talking about the back doors!

In hindsight I should have shown him the Club door :smile:

On the other side of the Marmite car thing, I had a postman practically drooling over it! He asked for a tour of it :cool:

Ha ha! I won't let my colleague in it as he has been critical (and I don't like him). Although I suspect it is more envy - I work with 5 guys and we have all had new cars in the last 8 months except for him. Plus they are all very nice cars!

Cool :D

Yep, Sue (Gemini321) came in her Dark Silver S Clubman :nice:
Mmm, I've seen a couple of DS Clubmans (Clubmen?) and they look great! Have to say I was quite taken by the brown one too :eek: Quite retro!

I love the back doors, they rock :cool:

Flower, what colour's yours?

Mine is PW/B with bonnet stripes (Cooper S). I haven't seen that many but all the ones I have seen in the various colours look great. Not that I am biased towards the car, oh no!

I've given 3 guided tours of my clubman s so far, two to mini drivers, one to some window smudgers in the high street, everyone loves it. Hot choc was so the right choice! It even looks like marmite!

Noooo! It doesn't look like Marmite at all! I've seen a couple Hot Choc and it is gorgeous - it reminds me of that super expensive but gorgeously yummy Charbonnel et Walker hot chocolate drink you can buy from Waitrose! It is definitely not a Cadbury Options :smile:
