    When did you buy the car?

    June 2011

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    It was a fairly good deal I think. Difficult to tell as the salesman will always tell you that you're getting a good deal!

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Always wanted a mini but had 5 children and horses so had to wait until they had grown up and we did not need a tank for transport any longer!

    What was the dealer like?

    Bought from Peter Vardy Mini. Showroom was ok. Salesman was nice but I wish they didn't do the whole, having to speak to the manager to get a good deal thing. It really puts me off.

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    Drives really well both in town and on the motorway. I LOVE driving it. Fairly nippy when it needs to be and will cruise along quite happily at 80mph.

    What's it like to park?


  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    A couple of the alloy wheels have bubbled. This happened fairly quickly and the dealership did sort out the first one but I felt that after a few months I couldn't go back with the second one. That is the only problem though.

    What's most practical about your car?

    I can park it anywhere!!

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    I love the look of the dashboard with its large central speedo (which is totally impractical). The seats are really comfy and very supportive. Love my radio controls on the wheel.
