    Default The New Addition

    My old workhorse 1.7TD Astra was getting a bit long in the tooth, so we bought this.

    My wife has always wanted one and eventually got her way...

    I have to say though it is fantastic fun, it really does make you smile when you drive it, handles superbly and is very nippy.

    I quite like it!

    Tee Hee, that sounds familiar!

    I have added a few bits..

    The side graphics and GB badge were put on by me, (Got to have a GB badge on a MINI!)
    The hideous orange side repeaters are gone now replaced with some nice smoke ones which look a lot better.. and a few bulb upgrades.
    I have my eye on a few other things and so far my lovely wife is all for the mods!!

    Now where was that supercharger kit I saw on ebay....

    They are very smart. Never really been up close to one until last week when the little fella took to the track in a supercharged version. Missus has been making noises ever since about how cute they are.
