Hello all, Been looking at this site for a couple of weeks now - one of those secret voyeurs, well I've got to get my kicks somehow.....

Thank you all for being so enthusiastic because my order is now in for my cooper - blue with white bits - and will be saying goodbye to my Alfa GTV....

Been told March or April delivery....any advice on best way to fill the time other than furious self-abuse over pictures of other people's Minis?

You could try slower self abuse to help pass the time?..;)

I hear it makes you go blind though, so be careful or you won't be able to drive it at all..:)

MiniJamie,

If your GTV is anything like the one I had I guess you`ll be busy taking it down to the dealers every couple of weeks!
Mine was a piece of junk and I was happy to see the back of it, the only thing it did quickly was depreciate.

Acutally did OK......

Actually I ended up with a good one - have really enjoyed owning it but when things have gone wrong it has cost a bloody fortune.

A flint decided to smash the offside headlight assembly last month and Alfa charged me £260 for the unit and fitting.

It was a lovely idea for a car but really suffers from the Alfa blight....

You're right about depreciation though - what a nightmare, still trying to get a vaguely acceptable trade-in price to avoid the lottery of private sale.

"I Can't wait etc"

Just to wet your appetite,

I have just been for a drive this morning in my cooper from Scarborough (N.Yorks) winding over deserted moorland roads and twisty B roads. The car is AMAZING. knife edge steering accuracy, sharp brakes and a beautifully balanced chassis make for one of the best Sunday mornings I can remember in a long time. I am still grinning from ear to ear!!. The engine is loosening up nicely with 3000 miles on the clock and the gearbox is like a knife through butter.

Hope you enjoy yourswhen you have taken delivery!

Happy Mini Motoring :D :D :D

Ahem - lost it for a moment there ;). At least I know it will be worth the wait.

Just hope the Fiesta lasts that long. Any bets :confused:
