Default Returning to the MINI fold - 15th May 2017, 06:34 PM

Evening all,

Returning to the MINI fold after a couple of years away. I used to be a member on here before the site went down/was rebuilt around 2012/13.

My previous MINIs consisted of:

2002 (52) Electric Blue Cooper S
2008 (08) Astro Black Cooper S
2012 (62) White Silver Cooper D

Then I went over to the dark side and bought a BMW (and then another one). After a brief stint in an E46 330ci Sport I traded it for an E90 320d M Sport. This eased the cost of my commute a bit, but was rather boring.

I always missed the MINIs, and having turned 30 this year I decided to treat myself to the one that I had always wanted but never managed to justify.

So having decided I wanted to get back in a MINI, I've been lurking on here as a guest for a few weeks whilst searching for the right car, which I ended up finding last weekend.

The car:

2013 (63) John Cooper Works
Midnight Black with Chili Red roof and mirror caps
Chilli Pack
Media Pack
Heated black Lounge leather with red piping
and other stuff that I can't think of right now...

It is an approved used car from Stratstone MINI in Derby. A nice bunch of people, although there was absolutely no budging on price or extras.

I'm looking forward to doing a few bits to the car, getting back into the conversations on here, and hopefully make it out to a few events this summer.

I will get some pictures up asap.
