That sounds like one nice car. Astro Black is a real nice colour. I am glad to see you are happy mate :D

I got my Mini on Saturday and only done 190 miles so I am impressed that you have already done 700 miles!!! Only 300 more odd miles and your engine will be ready for some action.

Cheers mate.

Forgot to add Traction control to my list of spec as well. Although haven't been able to use that as yet :D

I am so glad i had the Astro Black instead of the normal black. Depending on the light it turns from a dark black to a tint of dark blue........and sometimes even a hint of purple. Well cool!!

I have been sticking to the:

- Don't go over 90MPH
- 4,500 RPM

It's killing me but don't want to risk anything. Sure i will be able to enjoy the proper mini experience when i have run her/him in.

p.s i got my Mini passport today as well???? A nice touch :D

Congrats funkaroo! That is one nice spec you've got there... ;) Astro Black looks nice on the ones that I've seen around. :cool:

As for the driving and the enjoyment, trust me, the fun is only just beginning...! :p

Sounds like your mileage is racking up with the same intensity mine did - not even in my third month of ownership yet (will be on 9th Dec) and already I'm less than 200 miles off the 4k mark :eek: ! (Better slow down a bit I think, or I'll be way over on the mileage for the finance people! ;) :rolleyes: :D )

Enjoy matey, and remember that not only will the car loosen up, but so will the speaker cones for the H/K - the more you play 'em, the better they sound! :cool: :D

Congrats

I'm sure you and your new MINI will have a blast together :)
I do envy you with regards to the folding door mirrors though. I wanted these as an option on mine but back then it was just a mere rumour.

Happy motoring :)

Cheers buddy,

Yeah i have been a bit obsessive with the miles. Did go to London for the day though so thats a 250 round trip but still 400 ish miles in only a few days.

I have a rattle in one of the tweeters on the H/C so got to book that back in, but no big deal!

Heres to many months if not years of fun :D

Hey,

Yeah it was an option that i though was really cool. makes me feel like james bond when going through tight gaps. Only retract when your going under 18MPH though which is a bit of a sod but still pretty funky thing to have
