Mini's ...

Some people hate them, i'm just about to buy another, it will make us a 2 Mini family..... Its an F56 with every toy, its a Cooper S convertible in a girly aqua caribbean blue with the white interior.

When i say every toy, it was 32k new, but to make it the right spec it needs a few tweeks and more importantly the JCW tuning kit.

Lucky it's not another Clubman you've just bought ahead of me. I'd be seriously upset.

It's up at 17k which is pretty much the cheapest cooper s I can find, the other 2 I was interested in were 20k and 23.5k.

I had tried to convince the wife to go for a jcw hardtop but it wasn't to be

I've still got my MCS R55, I guess thats going to feel a little bit old now, i think your thoughts on the 5 door pretty much sum up what i think. With the R55 I have no reason to change at the minute, the only thing that may tempt me is a 6.2 V8 C Class ....

I do like white silver its one of my preferred colours, in fact this colour is probably one of the last that i would choose and it was purely the spec, something like 32k new so its shed over 50% in just over 18 months. We haven't set a date for collection but it probably going to be a week on saturday, i've not seen it yet, its some 3 hours away from me in Alton Hampshire.

The wife has already asked if we can get it remapped

I like that colour! I loved the roadster concept they did in that colour.
