We've got another Clubman!.

We had been looking at Pacemans and Countrymans as there was zero availability of Clubmans. Then the budget got bigger and bigger looking at Paceman Works.

The issue was she really wanted another Clubman and paying even more money for a car she didn't desire, and is for carrying our old dog about, didn't make the most sense. Although I was quite fond of the Paceman.

A good looking car came up and it sounded really promising. The issue was it was a long way away.

The car is one owner with full history. Recent bills including 4 new Continental tyres, brakes and servicing. The owner promised me I wouldn't find a mark on it.

Sadly I found lots. It's got a few big stone chips touched in badly on the bonnet. It's also got 4 dents on the bonnet that need PDR. They are all in areas I'm confident they can be done ok.

The spec of the car isn't up to the old car. Cars of that spec are way too rare, but it's fine for what it will be used for.

The sat nav is crap anyway, but the whole screen makes operational things easy. There's loads of other small things that you don't feel makes much difference, but I missed them on the way up.

The Mini was completely overshadowed today. I knew before I went down the guy lived in a really nice house. His everyday cars were about 100m away at the other side of the courtyard/garden. We were sorting this out in the outhouse/office and he invited me into his garage.

He had a stunning Lamborghini Aventador as his toy.

576 miles today and the car seems fine. There's a fair amount of work to put in over the next while. This car is maybe not as rare as the old car, but it's a bit rare for another reason......this one isn't exactly black.

I'm glad you've found another motor. One thing this thread has highlighted is we need to be a bit more vigilant when taking out insurance. This can happen to any of us and by the looks of it going of parkers guide etc I think we will all be hit in the wallet.

I've only got a few hours today so not going to get much done.

Here's me making use of my Polished Bliss prize clothes.

Before anyone comments about the colour I would like you to watch this first.

It's mostly this colour.
