It's kinda the other way round...

We have the 150 posts rule to protect our users & their Minis from fly by night crooks & chancers. Hopefully it will be too much effort for them, or they'd be sussed out in that time. Alternatively you can sign up for TMF+ it costs a little bit, but that shows you at least have the credential of a valid Paypal account. Or you can link to your ebay sales in our ebay section, so their sales protection covers any buyers.

:-)

We do have an index ya know! http://www.theminiforum.co.uk/forums/ - bottom of the classifieds section

Hello an welcome.

A really great story

I must admit I had the same desire to buy my first 850 back.

Unfortunately, looking at the DVLA website he appears to of gone to the great mini scrap yard in the sky.

Welcome! Lovely story. Fate!

Your posts will soon count up. You say you know your Mini inside out, so have a look in the Problems section. You may be able to help someone out and bump up your post count at the same time. :)

It's still original other than I have some beige seat covers over the original seats since they were a bit tatty, also the headrest is missing on the passenger front seat, so I'm planning on buying some new seats soon, and doing a lot of work on the interior but will probably keep the Neon theme of the car.

What's your interior like?

Hello again! Busy couple of days - full service done yesterday - you should have seen the crap that came out of my radiator!

Fellow Neon user my interior is original although I have chrome handles/ window winders (not the ugly ones with holes in the expensive ones lol) the twit I sold it to replaced the carpet with a navy blue one so im buying an original grey ones - apart from that (and not having original steering wheel, very expensive on ebay) pretty sweet lol!
