I'm a new member of this forum but not a new Mini owner. My parents had a new mini in 1961 which I learned to drive in. It was one of the early ones with sliding windows, floor mounted starter and wires to open the doors. Later, in the 70s my mum had a mini 1000 which I 'borrowed' quite a bit. Harvest gold I believe the colour was. She had to stop driving about 8 years ago but she still has her 1991 Mayfair with 8000 miles on the clock, cranberry red, and pretty much like new. I exercise it from time to time and make sure it's happy. In 2008 I got a new R56 MINI Cooper D which did around 50000 pretty trouble free miles. A couple of months ago I swapped it for an F56 MCS with JCW chilli pack and JCW exhaust and tuning kit. It was purchased nearly new and neither I nor the garage knew it had the JCW bits. It came down from Scotland on a lorry so I got a nice surprise when I met it, as well as a bargain price. Plenty of goodies like satnav, connected xl, heated seats, full leather etc. Still getting to know it!
