just to say though, in the first pic of the mini, it looks like theres quite a bit oil leak in the engine bay as its wee'd all over the inside of the bonnet.

Minispares Bushes I.
After I got them, I changed my mind and decided to get the poly ones...
Minispares Bushes II.
So I gave the poly ones to the mechanic who said he needed coned metal inserts. There weren't any metal cones with the poly bushes, but there were with the first lot. Will they work with the poly bushes or is the first lot completely wrong (they look different)?

you can't use the cone inserts on the poly bushes, but the poly bushes should have come with a metal inner (like in the pic on minispares)
Right so I have got the right ones, but my mechanic is showing his mini experience by not realising my poly bushes are kosher and wanting me to give him the cone ones.
I shall have a butcher's for a more mini-savvy mechanic. I can't do it myself (lack of technical ability notwithstanding), because I don't have a garage so all my work has to be done on the roadside.
Cheers for the reply Sam
