What did you go for in the end?
Claud Butler Stoneriver, got it from the local bike shop, got him to reduce his price, and chuck some freebies and a future service and to do the set up, so worked out a better deal than the web in the end. I always prefer to use local independent traders if I can, and something like this is something that might need to be taken back in future so thought it was a wise move:)

Just thought you all should know

GP0205 aka Jaws II has been sold and left for a new home today.

After almost 3 years of wonderful experiences all over the UK it finally became time to bite the bullet and sell. We're both more than a little upset to see him go but with MOT and big bills looming for tyres and brakes it seemed right in these financially troubled times to make a brave decision.

On the plus side, I've got one of these from "competitor evaluation" fleet for a week.



It's a really funky little car, not anything like a MINI in terms of handling or driving pleasure but its nippy enough , is fairly refined and does a decent 51mpg.

and then this arrives in a few days time. It'll keep us MINI until the model line up changes are ready. :)

It is sad to let them go:(.
I love my 135i, but I still hanker after another MINI.....and this will be rectified when things pick up a bit:D So may start a speccin' thread elsewhere in the not to distant future;)

I am a little disappointed as my mate had an Abarth on order and was sooo looking forward to having a go in that, but he has decided to cancel and get something else instead.

I'd have expected it to be MartinL too that posted something like that:( lol
Sorry mate, I'm a bit late to this party :p

Feckin' MINI dealer didn't reset the service indicator. Got in the car last night and it said it wanted a service :rolleyes:
At least it'll go back soon when my replacement rims come in. They can sort out the service indicator then.

TT is a year old tomorrow :)
Had it's share of problems, but at least all rectified quickly and efficiently with minimum fuss by my dealers.
Latest one is that I had a diesel tank fitted to my car.... :rolleyes:
Had to get that swapped out and lost 5 litres capacity in the swap :(

Aiden hope yours is OK.
