Just went to trade in my Cooper S tin top 5 months early this afternoon. Got a good price for it, so will be driving a VW Polo for the next 4 1/2 months.
Anyway, the sales man (Paul Doyle at Fawdington Mini in Newcastle) gave me a lift home in the gaffers Cooper S Cab. It has just come out of the garage this afternoon after having had the 210bhp works upgrade fitted to it. So I thought I would share the experience with you all. What can I say, but it goes like stink! Even though it was rush hour traffic we did manage to open it up a bit. The pull in any gear is astronomical - especially in 3rd and 4th. The sound of the exhaust, on the standard S is fantastic, it's even sweeter. The guy in the next lane on the A1 driving the civic type R did not stand a chance, he was suitably put in his place
At £3500 fitted it is a bargain in my opinion. If only my finances could stretch that far!!!
For all of those that have thought about it, just try it and you will be hooked!
May I say a big thanks to Paul of Fawdington Mini. If you live in the N/E then try out Fawdington, the service is the best I have experienced, and I have used a few Mini garages over the last 3 years
