    Talking Poor Mini....

    Had a bit of a play with a Mini Cooper S last night.... (allegedly 175 BHP on the mini website)

    Jostled with me down the half mile of 30mph dual carriageway we were on, TBH, I just thought he was driving like a tw4t. On to the 60mph dual carriageway and he came right up my 4rse end, full beam on, then pulled out and overtook me.

    Sadly for him, we got to a set of traffic lights which were on red, and for some reason, he'd stayed in the outside lane. I pulled up beside him, and I could see him nudging forwards and revving the nuts off his toy car.

    "Right", I thought, "enough of this!" so when the lights changed, I floored it, by the time I hit 60 he was waaaaaay behind me but I stopped at 60 while he caught up and overtook me again. 2 mins later another set of lights, EXACTLY the same happened - he couldn't even say he wasn't expecting it!

    And it must have killed him to be beaten off the mark by a diesel!!

    No no no , You did it all wrong , gently away in 1st , then open the little door that let all the torques out get into second then floor it then 3rd , if i tried wheelspinning off the lights the amount of judder in the drive line will F**k the car in no time , i expect it was a cooper and not a cooper s , the s has a supercharger and is pretty nippy .

    I've completely nailed a Cooper myself...

    But, I hired a cooper S for the weekend earlier this year... and they are pretty quick, so not sure if your entanglement was a cooper...

    Could of been an S though, only you will know that one

    parapaul next time you take one on if approaching from the rear the exhaust should be twin and in the centre of the bumper not to the right if you can see the bonnet if there is a scoop in it its a "cooper s".
    I love ours to bits, but being 19.5 stone and 6ft 4 look a bit of a t$*t in it but its great every once and a while.

    well it is only the old chrysler Neon engine.... it's also quite a small blower..more a gimmick than a real power hike..
