Default Back in a Mini! - 16th August 2017, 08:44 AM

Hi all,

Been lurking for a little while (and seemed to take ages to get my account approved - telling me something?). Anyway, I thought I'd say hello

I've just moved back to Mini after my Stage 1 Mk5 Golf GTi started to show its age. I had a 51 plate Mini One years ago and definately had a hankering for a quicker one - so a couple of weeks ago I picked up the F56 JCW you see below



Loving the car so far. Fighting the urge to mod it too much quite yet!

Dave

I must say, the interior did play a big part in my choice. Not just the tech, but its so well thought out and designed. When I sit in BMW's with the same / similar tech, I find them pretty boring.
