Cheers chaps, I sold up last weekend as well!! It was a tearful day, the little one starts nursery in March so needed a more suitable car dropping her off.  Cant believe I actually went through with it considering all the work I put in over the years........ Shocked

Anyways the wifes not happy with the new purchase, she said its not practical in any way!  Dont know what shes on about, can any body explain why a 3 door Mini is not suitable for a car seat?

Yep a Mini Cooper S (supercharged Cool  ) full electric kit, im happy but shes not oh well Laughing

So after a fair few years I cant believe shes gone!  Going to miss the work horse, hopefully gone to a loving and respecting owner, nearly didnt sell her on the day, I treated her to a full machine polish and even re blacked all the trim.  Looked utterly amazing, even the bloke who put new set of shoes on her that morning said Ive never seen one in this good condition for the age! End of an era really but chin up life goes on, might even see the old girl around Crying or Very sad

Only thought about a mini over Xmas, fancied the noise of a supercharger Laughing

It's fun little car, but Christ it's crap on fuel... I'd compare it to the R! Having said that, I won't be using it much so doesn't matter really.  It's a really clean car to be fair, only mod I've found is MSD coil pack as the standard mini one always corrodes and fails on pin 3 and the milltek exhaust.  Oh and silly halo led sidelights that stay illuminated for hours once ignition off  Evil or Very Mad stuck a resistor in solved that issue, but can't solve the issue of flashing when you first start up.  Ordered a cable to hook it up to laptop hoping to disable light bulb check on start.  As we know led's need bugger all power to illuminate when modern cars run a check to see if any bulbs have blown normal filament bulbs don't light up, but the leds do, grrr.  Even stuck a normal sidelight bulb in parallel with the halos but still flashed... might just bin them and stick standards in Laughing Still got the standard pulley on supercharger and airbox, so not been messed with.  

The old original minis are silly price for a decent one, as in you can't see the road through the floor pan Laughing

It must be running around 170 - 180 hp pulls well and the whine is kinda cool but not irritating, reducing pulley size and induction kit I think would make it irritating on long journeys.

^ stick a ladyboy in you car and you get instant whining and induction noises Razz
The German mini very popular here, not seen an original vintage mini though which shame, have few old land rovers, beetles, campers, Datsun pickups etc but no original british minis !
