I'm getting really hacked off with shill bidders on ebay. 4 items in the last week I have been offered second chance within less than a day of the auction ending. Tonight I received a second chance offer within a minute of an auction ending. Despite usually wanting the item I won't buy them as I refuse to pay an artificially inflated price.

I've committed a sin, and bought a BINI as a daily driver.

    Yeah. I like the supercharger noise. just done the coil pack plugs, ht leads,clutch/flywheel, just waiting for my radiator to turn up. The supercharger isn't far off either. :(

    R53 is fast becoming a future classic, great fun to drive, worth getting a good one to keep.

    Hopefully. I'm also getting the supercharger looked at, gears upgraded, new seals, oil changed ect in a few weeks. Want to try and keep it until the thirty is restored. I like it, and can't be bothered with the hassle of buying/selling again.

    If you haven't chosen a destination yet just don't copy the antics of an Oozlum bird.

Can't believe it's been 5 years since I've owned a Mini! Looking at my third one tomorrow, fingers crossed it's as good as it looks!

You know you have a problem when you buy your third mini and neither of your other two are working.
