Took it off a few months ago as had grumbles from the neighbours whose bedroom window was behind my parking space. It seems it woke them when I left for work at 6.15 every day. Maybe they should get jobs themselves lol

I set off for work at 04.30 two mornings a week and I arrive back around 05.45 after my two night shifts.
Not too bad at the moment with my standard exhaust on my R56 S but when I get and fit the exhaust I want, I figure I may have some very upset neighbours LOL

I don't care what my neighbours think, most of them are inconsiderate gits anyway, bbq's, loud music and just generally annoying. Anyway its my right to annoy them at 6:00am because I go to work to pay tax to pay there welfare payments.


WARNING: Modifications seriously damage your wealth.

As does changing your MINI every 6 months.

I normally face nose down the drive so it doesn't sound so loud

We'll that's it for Kipper. Just removed his sports aerial and silver indicator bulbs so he is fully back to stock for his trade in at 4pm.

Final stats:

2 years, 6 months, 7 days of ownership from new.
23,420 miles
Average mpg 33.4
Top speed recorded by OBD 132mph
Average speed 31.4mph

Warranty issues- rear interior panels glued in rather than screwed because of speaker buzz at 2 months, replacement roof fabric and fitting of upgraded less wearing roof joints at 1 year. New spark plug for failed one at 16 months.

Other than that Kipper has been an awesome little car: certainly my best MINI so far.

Bye Kipper!

Goodbye Kipper.
Hope your new owner enjoys you just as much.

Best of luck with the Countryman, Paul.
