Well normal driving returns 32mpg which for me is about £50 a week. Was looking at Mk4 Astra GSI's but they are also only about 35mpg.

Think I might get a TDI 150 Golf Anniversary or maybe a GT TDi 150 R32 lookalike. Think they are about 8 seconds to 60 but return way better mpg (about 52) and are suited better for real life driving.

Thanks to the GTT treatment the MINI is running 210bhp, which on paper puts it to 6.2seconds to 60. Its a very quick car and the handling is immense but I've had my fun now and I think its time to get a more pratical car.

sounds ****, would get on my nerves driving. need to watch posting videos like this since all you're doing is encouraging people to drive like this. fair enough i enjoy driving fast at times but i wouldn't bother recording since its not big and its not clever

Work in this engineering company negotiating prices between competitors trying to save my company as much money as possible. I worked on the shop floor for work experience then came and asked for a job 18 months ago. Did 12 months on the shop floor learning and eventually operating a CNC machine myself turning out jobs worth 20k in a week or so. I was only on £5.25 an hour then which worked out about £170 a week.

I saw this post came free, applied and was accepted. After 2 weeks in the job they thought I was so good I got two pay rises lol.

It's a good job, really intresting and not too hard! In one day I can save the company around £2-3k

Classing it as a Cooper S would be like classing a 1.8SRi as a 1.0 Life.

I.E you are not insured :)

^^ Thankfully not me! no credit card or overdraft either! I'm too imautre for them imo and would end up in debt. I paid £7k cash/asset towards the Cooper S and rest on finance :).

The Mini isnt a works just has a aftermarket performance package that boosts it up to the same bhp as a works. Oh, and that 50bhp makes it feel like a different car :eek:
