@Rps ltd

Can wait to see how yours turns out with the Thunder Grey and Black wheels. I like the contrast theme you are going with. Although the blacked out mini and red top in your avatar looks nice too

so hopefully the black wheels and roof wil look as good as I think.

Hi

First Mini was a British Racing Green Cooper , last of the naturally aspirated versions.Unfortunately it fell over & was a write-off although I was completely unscathed.Followed this up with a couple of Pumas & after an exciting time with a C Max 2 litre Turbo, which was comfortable, but ultimately boring I obtained a fantastic low mileage 1st Gen Cooper in Hyper Blue.Fantastic fun.But the new spec on the F56 has enticed me to order a Cooper in Moonwalk Grey due here,hopefully,early June.

I have Moonwalk Grey MINI Cooper D 1.5 on order , I currently drive a Toyota Auris Hybrid which has been fantastically reliable but is just a little bit boring , it has averaged 54.2mpg over 64000 miles or so.

My previous car before the hybrid was a DMS modified BMW 120d which I was really sad to give up but the company car tax was getting ridiculous - hence the name CO2slave.


I do about 20,000 miles per year (commuting 50 miles each way to work )so I am hoping to get 60-65mpg from the Dooper and a whole lot more fun!

Car is scheduled for 10/6/14 but I am expecting there to be a delay from what has been discussed on this forum

Mini 1.5 Petrol Volcanic Orange with black roof and caps all kitted out missing ejector seats and missiles



I am a writer - the first screenplay is being re written by myself - the writer - and the Director of The Tick Tock Man

The second screenplay is on it's way and the third will join up shortly - all will be followed by a childrens book and by sometime next year my production company will be up and running.

Happily married - one son - so no flirting at all
