I drive my wife's Mini from time to time and they are quite fun - they handle very well and go around corners like a little go-kart. I was looking at a JCW convertible recently whilst visiting a Mini garage with my wife (problem pairing her mobile to the radio :D ) and it looked like a really fun little car 8-)

Hi Del, it is a fast little car but does feel sturdy. I have had him two weeks and petrol gauge hasnt moved yet and I can reach the whole bonnet from one place to wash it, bonus :D :lol:

I am using my sons 1.6 cooper BMW mini at the moment to and from work.
Much smiles per mile in my opinion.

Great to hear from another mini driver, he is not the kind of mini i had years and years ago, thank goodness.

When i told my mum i was getting a mini she immediately said do the brakes work :lol: :lol: It took me quite a bit of time to persuade her that technology has changed quite a lot since 40 odd years ago, every mini we had then, had brake failures, regularly :lol:

:D
