What an outstanding update! Now, this is not something I ever expected to say or type, but your bongo looks amazing. Any chance you could fire up a wee thread showing all the detail, inside and out?

Hope you get the mini sorted buddy. A good friend has the very same cold start issue with his 330d. If he reaches any conclusions, I'll let you know.

Cheers

Excellent update and I'm pleased to hear that you are still enjoying the Mini. I've not experienced any of the issues with my R53 that you are experiencing so I can't offer any solutions but I am keen to hear what it might be.

Love the Bongo too and great to see that you've been using it as was intended.

Well i'm no fan of camper vans, and i always thought some of the Jap ones looked a bit jokey, but the interior on yours, and the practicality of the configuration have completely thrown my previous views of this model - looks great inside, especially the rear and perfect for those weekends away and festivals

Can you give us a show around thread of the Bongo? Looks brilliantly specced out and finished!

Thanks all! I never expected the Bongo to get quite so much attention!

Iíd be glad to stick up a thread about the Bongo as youíve both asked! Iíll get to work on it. Iím thinking it would be most suitable to be in the projects section - would you guys agree?
