Mrs Flub has a 5 door Cooper. You can just see it peeking round the corner in the background. Colour wise it's probably closer to the ceasium blue.

I did smile when i saw your yellow one

Great little car. I use it for nipping around town and fun journeys with roof down. It's a cooper S and has a nice little poppy exhaust and sound in sport mode. No sat nav or digital display.

Great car to drive once you are in it! I do feel like a contortionist getting in. Once im in its fine with lits of room. Might change it for a cabrio next year. Does the Cooper s feel a lot nippier than the Cooper? Haven't driven one.

I'm only 5ft 8 so its fine for me. The cooper S is much livelier. I imagine with sport mode off mines is like a a cooper but press the button and its much more responsive and the older ones make a nice noise with bits of overrun etc. Its 167BHP so not bad for a little car. Plenty of torque steer on acceleration and having the cabriolet is nice as I feel its quite a closed off small car so having the option to roof down is great for the summer.

Thanks Badger,

Sounds like a trip to the mini dealer is in order.........

My wife informs me that her next mini will be the dark grey colour. not blue!

Hey Flub .. that looks like a lovely corner of the world you've found to escape to ... how far past Paddington do you have to go every evening?

My wife drives a mini cooper as well!!

Have we happened upon some bizarre axiom of life that dictates a high probability of an F-Pace drivers' partner driving a mini??? :lol: :lol:
