I'm in!

Definitely up for it - I live in Nottingham.

I second the IKEA meatballs! Damn shame I can't get that PAX wardrobe in my MCS though. Not even with the seats down...

Then off to hooters? :D

whats the tram got to do with a mini

what has the tram got to do with a mini,

for 1 if i used the tram all the time i wouldnt be driving one of the best hatchbacks in the world. if not the best hatchback in the world (well done bmw)

2. i can drive where i want with a car, and not just on 1 route on a track like on the tram,

and 3, i have never heard something so ridiculous, ""why dont you catch a tram instead of driving a mini" not exactly the best comparison in the world.

i could relate to it if you said "why dont you get a ferrari instead of driving a mini" and that is a different matter, but i couldnt afford one anyway!!

good reasons for having a car and not using public transport!!

1 you dont look good on public transport!
2 you dont have to sit next to some of the horrible drunk sweaty people that go on the tram!!
3 you cant listen to that sweet note and burble of your exhaust system which puts a grin on your face everytime you turn the key!!
4 your missus or date wouldnt appreciate going on a date travelling by tram when they can listen to their favorite tunes and have there ass warmed on your mini seats on the way out. whick is a plus on these winter months!!
5you cant take the missus away for a weekend on a tram can you!! unless they build a track that goes from hucknall to cornwall and the like!! is not gonna happen is it.

tell you one thing about the mini that is like the tram tho!! it handles like it is on rails!!!!

Ikea is a good call, i live 30 seconds up the road......But they lock the gates at night so you cant get anywhere near, even when the gates are open you cannot get a parking space..

No offence taken :D

Thought you were going to have a coronary for a minute there... I was joking. After all, I drive a MINI too remember, rather than get the bus to work everyday....
