And here's her Mums JCW - little beast, fully loaded with all the leather and Nav and everything inside! Awesome little machine!

Rover launched the new MINI as we know it today back in 1997.

See youtube link

It was when Rover was sold by BMW that the MINI production line was moved from Longbridge to Oxford and the Rover 75 production line from Oxford (cowley) to Longbridge.

BMW refined the work already carried out by Rover but some of their weaknesses still existed. i.e. the Midlands gearbox in the 2001 - 2004 MINI One & Cooper Models.

Unfortunately there is a lot of new MINI hatred still out there, most of them have never driven them to be honest or are just following the trend from their other classic counterparts. There was the same problem when Rover introduced the new Rover Mini Cooper back in the early 90's from the original Cooper owners. Also if it wasn't for BMW the classic Mini wouldn't of lasted as long, the mpi models would never of happened if it hadn't of been for their extensive redesigning to meet safety standards

I don't by the way.



Well, to be honest, I don't know if I do or don't, I haven't tried it



And my other car



I'll try to get some pictures of the audio in it another time. My friend Iain is a bit of a master at making/fitting noisy bits. You can just make out the sub above.
