Nice ride ssbnreso, Enjoy!
I've recently bought an MCS Clubbie too.
I hope you don't have any problems with your new purchase, unlike me

I bought it about 6 weeks ago and drove it home. It was a 70 mile journey home down the M62, and when I got off the motorway I found that there were nice clouds of blue smoke after sitting at idle for a few minutes (at lights etc)
I also found that the Start Stop wasn't working - duff battery it seems.

Of course, as it was warrantied I wasn't too concerned. Silly me! The dealer has been like the Scarlet Pimpernel and it's taken over a month to get an agreement for the repairs

I've dropped it back with the dealers' mechanic yesterday so hopefully it'll be getting sorted.
Unfortunately, looking at the state of the garage I'm not too confident. It was a complete s@#t tip!
Got to start somewhere though, and he wasn't prepared to pay for my local Mini specialist to do the repairs.

Fingers crossed you get it all sorted! The previous owner of mine had a mini extended warranty so it's always been to a mini dealer if it had any problems. Was quoted 51 a month to carry it on for myself, tempted!
