    hello again, thanks for all the welcomes and comments :)


    alex - bought it from research nuneaton.

    theswede - not looking at the ss kit. to be honest i will more than likely see out the warranty and then go for an aftermarket chipping solution (there'll be loads by then, i suspect offering 160bhp or more for a few hundred quid).

    i'll be happy with the standard car for now, and this way it will be like getting a whole new boost (literally!) a few years down the line  :)


    should be picking it up at some point next week, as soon as they recieve my copy of the insurance and arrange the tax for me.

    was between this and a cooper s - and after driving even just the standard a500 there was just no comparison, in looks, fun and the whole experience..plus have saved a few grand into the bargain!

    Well done George. Glad you enjoyed it over the cooper :thumb: I have a Mini dealer about 300 yards away from us, must make them twinge every time they see one of the demos go out  ;D

    yes the mini was a damn fine car to drive (well, in cooper s guise anyway)...but it looks a little bland now, sadly i guess because of the sheer quantity of them around..and also it just wasnt as much fun, i was grinning almost the entire test drive in the abarth.

    it reminded me greatly of my first hot hatch, the mighty renault 5 gt turbo...well, suppose it should both of them being a 1.4 turbo in a tiny chassis.. ah, happy days!! :)
