Thanks for the welcome Brawlyrox,yup in the limited time I,ve had him he seems ok.Not used at the moment as he need,s taxing but wont be long .Thing is once you have owned a mini you cant do with out one,people seem to smile more when they are behind the wheel of the best small car ever :)

Marksmini,I come from Stoke and a mechanic by trade.Time & family permiting I hope to be around to answer a few questions etc.A lot of the clubs local to me seem to have moved on and then I found the mini forum and joined up.The forum is a great idea as it brings people together from all over and we can all help one another. :)

I work for a small independant garage established in the early 70,s .Apart from me there is only the owner and his son who is my age and they are all into classic cars.Its a nice enviroment,the money aint good but the people & the job satisfaction are important to me.Everything is old school there,so it suits me nicely and I am not sure I could cope with a busy main dealership.How you guys cope with the pressure I dont know,it seems like everybody wants the jobs done yesterday and for free,I dont think they appreciate what goes into modern cars.

GIVE ME A MINI ANYDAY :)
