I do love the mini but its just not practical anymore. We even struggle for room with the BMW X5 when we all go out together. I have currently got a brand new navara while mine is away in spain having the chassis repaired and that is what has got me thinking about combining the work truck/ holiday car into one. Although my insurance isn't an issue (got a trade policy) it would certainly help with parking space when the daughter starts driving and it seems pointless having a car parked on the drive not being used

Totally agree with you.... my work car is also our holiday car (if we all go).... it allows for the other car to be a bit more "fun" rather than functional.

Hope you find a good fit for you.

We are a bit in limbo at the moment as the missus is still on maternity leave until may. When she was working the mini was great for her because parking at the sheffield children hospital where she works is crap. So if she does use the X5 full time then parking may become an issue when she goes back to work but i am sure she will manage

Thanks zf44 hopefully you are right. I have advertised it on various other car forums but unfortunately don't have a high enough post count on here to list it to the mini enthusiasts

pop it on auto trader.... mine is on there and had plenty of interest...... but all from bloody traders wanting to knock you down lower than the trade in value! I have now added a "traders don't bother" warning at the top!
