    Hi Dipstic,
    What MINI you got?

    Nice choice in car to replace though

    Hi Aldo

    Little GTT 230 bhp Cooper S (04 facelift ) goes quite well (used to have a Works S) so got used to that sort of performance

    Thats really my worry, took a 05 a3 Quattro out for a test drive (3.2) and flew round a roundabout and lost the back end,after a handfull of opposite lock and with the stability controls cutting in I stopped to find I had a nsr flat tyre (big nail in it no warning)
    At least the salesman changed it for the spare (didnt buy that car as it smelt funny )
