Too many to list, I would have one again.


Didn't like spending £600 on a £350 car and working on it every day over 3 months to keep it on the road.


Fun To Drive, Bad To Maintain. — I had the automatic Mayfair jobby, seats had head rests! As with all Mini customisation was key for enthusiasts - mine had a REAL custom exhaust (bendy pipe from manifold to first and only silencer held up with wire string, then two jubilee clips holding the silencer to the subframe). 12" mini-lites on a 10" set-up. Oh, and five colours - two blue, three red. Carpet for head lining. NO heating. Quality (see negatives below). Changed the head gasket multiple times got to unbolted and fitted and bolted back up ready to go again in 2 hours.

It was my 1st car. The car dealer saw me coming. Head Gasket was blown, entire exhaust fell of and clutch failed. But, I still love little mini's as they go like the clappers and look pretty good. Read More
