Hi, Dave here.

 

I'm (hopefully) taking delivery of my long held dream of a mini tomorrow.

 

Hello to you all.

 

Question: What one thing do you wish you had known on day one of owning a mini?

It's always going to be a rolling to-do list no matter how much you do to it, so just accept all the things on the list and enjoy the car :-)

Ha. That's a nice question!
I don't have an answer but I hope you enjoy your mini journey as much as I have.

That it's an addiction!, it's been 36 years since I got my 1st mot failure mini to learn to drive and to work at aged 11.
Although I really think my love started as a 2 year old at a motor show. I'm now 47. Took my 58 year old mk1 out for a spin last night, always makes me smile and the fun never diminishes. 😄

Well, a week late, and I have properly taken delivery now!

 

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I kind of get it's going to be a journey for me. It's NOT a new car, and it's going to take some getting used to. But, I've wanted one for 30 years, and I'm darned well going to enjoy it!
