Oooooo, I wouldn't use those sort of words round these parts, you'll unleash all kinds of chaos you will!!

Looks like your doing the right kind of thing already though by joining up here! Are you a member of a local Mini Owners club? You can usually find minis for sale through them. Other than that, paroose the online forums as there are always minis on them all round the country.

Welcome to the forum, please come again! :cheese: :tongue:

Hi Lisa,

Yeah - as Jammy said 'surf around' a bit, get the mini magazines (mini world and mini mag) - local papers, the usual stuff. Best bargains are word of mouth, so get yourself joined up to a local mini club if not done so already.

.....and defo watch how you express yourself. Theres some right durty so and so's on here!!!

right Jam :cheese:

I don't think anyone was offended (you'll have to work a lot harder than that to offend any of us :cheese: ) Just there are a couple of people here who might eerrrrmm see the inuendo in what you said :grin:

If you dare take a peek in the General Silly Chat section and you'll see what I mean :nugget: :grin:

Now, Ade, that poll was fixed, I'm sure of it!!! Theres no way I'm worse than you!! Although I agree with Ade on TC!!
