Hello everyone!
My name is Cesare, I'm from Italy and I am new here.
In the family we have a beautiful Mini One F56 from 2019 in british racing green IV (Spectacular color).
A new black BMW F40 118i has also recently arrived (Same engine 馃榿). This is the first time that we venture into the MINI / BMW world! We hope everything goes well (at the moment we are very happy).

I leave you with two photos of the two cars!

hi ! British racing green looks amazing :) I have the same color.

how is the same engine between two cars? I think 118i is bit slower as it is heavier then the mini.

The mini is a "one" so it uses the less powerful version of the 1.5L.
Yes the 118i weighs a little more but, perhaps also due to the automatic transmission, it seems to me to be more quicker.
My initial idea for the F40 was to get the 118d diesel (i like the torque..) but since I had issues with the DPF on my previous diesel car I went with a petrol engine (doing less than 15.000km at year).

Maybe in the future we will think about bringing the 1.5L of the mini to 136hp :sneaky:
In sport mode they are both very fun (although unfortunately with the traffic I find I can't even pull some gears!)
