Having said that though, I still miss my Mk 1 Golf GTi, wish I had a garage at the time that I could have put it in (it was a good few years ago) and I blame the govt for sending me to sandy and sunny climes to do a spot of Saddam bashing!

I see your old Mini is up for sale again on Gumtree. Buy it back? :lol:

 

My supercharged Cooper Sport went down to Hertfordshire. I'm in the process of selling all my Mini stuff and moving on. 

 

I took an '07 BMW Mini Clubman S for a test drive at the weekend....really nice! I was surprised by the insurance quote, nearly the same as my '97 Cooper 1.3 Mpi.

 

 The Golf is looking good. Crack on! :thumbsup:

haha he has used my advert as his! everything he has put on it is what i said to him .. he knows absolutley nothing about mini's and he hasn't done any of that work himself me and my dad did it , he has only had it 2 month. going back to honda's knew he wouldnt keep it long. i wouldnt pay 3k for it only 2.5k max(What i was selling it for) needs body work and paint doing . Rant over haha i want a weekend toy or im planning track/drag mini dont want daily

only mini i would buy would be my first mini L94 CTY see that for sale let me know ! ;D  .
