UJ Nearing the end of first year with a Mini - 16th August 2017, 10:16 AM

Hi all,
I've been lurking on here for a while, so thought it was about time I introduced myself.

I have owned my Mini a year tomorrow. Its a 2005 '55 Mini One in Astro Black, one lady owner from new, 27k miles (when I bought it) and a main dealer service history as long as my arm!

Prior to the Mini I had a 2014 Mazda MX-5 Sport Venture 2.0 Hardtop which I bought new, it was just getting a bit too impractical for daily use and was giving me a dodgy knee, so I sold it. I was really struggling with what to buy to replace it so bought the Mini as a "put on".

I've always had a liking for them; I remember a family friend ordered one of the first R50's when they first came out. I even included a Ice Blue Cooper S in my GCSE art final piece back in 2003. Anyway fast forward a year, I still have the Mini and have no plans to replace it. Have changed quite a few bits over the year - will put a thread up.

I'm off to the Mini festival at Oulton Park on Saturday, look forward to seeing lots of Minis

Now:F56 MINI Dooper MidnightBlack (Chili, Full White leather, Connected XL Nav, adaptive dampers, heated seats, HUD, Harmon Kardon speakers, black alloys)
Before:F56 MINI Dooper IcedChoc (Chili,VisualBoost,Leather)
Before: R56 MINI Cooper Lightning Blue (Chili,half leather)
Before :R50 MINI One Moonlight Black (Pepper)
+ 2 Audi TT MK2s in between.

I also check too on our previous MINIs and VWs Golfs/Beetles. I also have a 'very sad' past time looking at the MOT history from the free service the Government have introduced to see how badly my previous cars have been neglected by the new owners, some have received advisories as long as my arm! I kept them all spotless and maintained under my ownership
