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:

 

Cant believe that. Alex selling out to a BINI :o Insurance is stupid for me.....200bhp sport hatch is same price as a 1ltr micra. Ive had afew different cars lately, now got a diesel civic and the insurance is the same still.

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  .

 

Yer ive still got bits to sell enjoying the Golf nothing better for motorway storming but may be selling for a tdi at the end of the year to lower insurance and better Mpg

 

 

I seen the mini come back up. Lee peacock shared the link with me on facebook as I was thinking of buying another at the weekend, but soon changed my mind. Stick to the plan, 1 really mint one and enjoy it. Rather than projects/parts all over at the same time.

Insurance on my golf is quite high so thinking of getting a cheap petrol, decent diesel and save up .. completely agree as there's no garage projects for me for a while want to do it properly . fancy buying bog 1275 and turn into track/drag car doesn't matter about rust, electrics,brakes etc just power and no weight :whistling:  always temptations tho ha

 

mine drops significantly like half if i get 1.6 or less

my quotes are only pounds apart from a 1ltr to a 3ltr

 

Im insured with Brentarce and basically have a upper limit for bhp (300bhp rings a bell), so most cars are covered for the same price.

Ha-ha...there's nothing wrong with using the previous owners specification list! I've done that...saves time!  :lol:

 

Yeah Jordie, I can't believe it myself! :lol: Me, driving a BINI???....it's 10 years of A-series exhaust gases and oil that's made me do that! :wacko:

 

I'm thinking along the lines of you guys here, keep my Mini 40 for shows/sunny weekend drives rather than juggle 3-4 classic (1 daily driver / 1 reserve daily driver) and parts everywhere!

 

I think the insurance is slightly cheaper because it's an old granny BINI 1.6 Cooper S estate. :lol:  My '97 Mpi Cooper is on a classic policy and this costs another £80 or something!!! I 'might' have a BINI by next week! ;D

Ha Alex its alright when you know what it means !!

 

mine is 4 figures at the moment for the 1.8T and like £400-500 for things like a bini cooper 1.4 1.2 tdi's etc etc or smaller engined.(Mod's are declared...this time )

 

Sounds like a plan alex best way i reckon to concentrate on one rather than a garage full haha

Good ol' Golf's. Used to have a Mk3, weren't a bad little car. Mk5's can look pretty good; people do some crazy things like pop Bentley rims on 'em. Here's a few of my old girl just in case you fancied a look.

It had a maaaad exhaust note to it. I've gone to an 80's Merc now so not really dub as such, feel like I'm past hatchbacks now in a way. I refurbed those wheels just before taking these pictures, was a long job.

Yeah, makes sense! Don't slate 'em until you have owned a BINI. They have a few faults just like the classic Mini. :lol:

 

I purchased a BINI Clubman S a few weeks ago. The stereotypical comments are funny.

 

Buy one...don't like it...sell it!
