I've had my F56 JCW for 3wks now and haven't stopped smiling until I had a stone chip on the bonnet this afternoon :cry:. It's my 3rd Mini and by far the best, my 1st was a Mini 1275GT and the 2nd was a Cooper S both were owned in the 1980's when I was a young lad and were great fun. I've owned many cars since then but couldn't resist a return to my 1st car.

Welcome! where are the pics?! 😁
FWIW with mine I'd had it about 6 months when there was a thunderstorm and my dog was stuck outside. For some reason he thought I was in the car and tried to scratch his way in, deep scratches on 6 different panels - I understand the stone chip pain...

I'll post some pics if it ever stops raining here!

It’s funny how you can feel nostalgic for your first car even if it wasn't great; mine was a Reliant Supervan III. I got my new Mini in December last year and the first long journey I made in it I managed to pick up a stone dent in the bonnet which is a bit of a shame.

It's actually quite difficult to see as it's only broken through the lacquer and not the paint. I'm not sure what I can do about it to be honest as I guess it will only get worse?
