Looks good. Any plans to tweak it? How you getting on with the interior? I found it a little busy in there. It is it actually easy enough to live with?

Slightly boring question but how you getting on with the mpgs?

These sound silly (in a good way!) with the pro exhaust!!

Enjoy. 👍

Cheers Keano; possibly a re-map to come at some stage, but I`ve only had it 3 weeks, so still enjoying it as-is, for the moment...

TBH, I love the interior; it has everything I need in it, and then some, and I find the fit/finish excellent - typical BMW really, which is not bad thing IMHO !

Yes, it`s a bit busy, but again, I like that - say in comparison to the Audi S3 I owned last year, which was TOO minimalist, I think the MINI`s interior is great.

Now I`ve got some strange thoughts on the PRO exhaust - My only experience of it was on the Challenge 210 Cooper S I drove, just before the JCW, and I actually preferred the JCW, as I thought it was louder, when you`re not going for it, when you have the windows up, and I could hear it better inside the cabin ?
I know that will sound nuts, and I`m probably the only in the universe that thinks that, but that`s what I thought

Right; MPG: Flamin` hell, it`s a revelation, and how MINI have extracted so much from a 2.0L engine that goes like this, is beyond me...!
I`m getting anything between low 30`s, to low 40`s, depending how I drive it, and, I kid you not here, when I picked it up, and drove it home from Leeds to where I live, around 50 miles, I achieved no less than 55 mpg !!
Seriously, it was that high ! Yes, I`ve no doubt that was because most of the stretch of the M62 I was on is currently governed by those 50MPH speed cameras, but bloody hell - I thought I`d bought a diesel !!

Like the stripes that go over the rear boot lid. Nice.
