Hi the re, and welcome. Let's have some details about your car,spec and experiences so far. If you have time of course. Must confess I'm bad at getting pictures on here. Still can't do it reliably.

My first mini was an original mini 1000 beige/rust many moons later I returned to a 2003 cooper S great car but a bit thirsty. I then had a 60 plate in electric blue with black roof etc followed by 63 plate all black. I then had a senior moment where I decided I needed more room so traded in for a very forgettable Vauxhall this lasted a week and after a wailing and a gnashing of teeth am now back in my beloved Tommy

60 plate?? 63 plate??? "English please"...
2006 model year =60 plate, 2006 after September 2063 plate. Uk number plates are year related and there are two changes per year stingray. Of course you can pay and have a private plate too. Great way for the gov to make some extra cash.

Is yours as in your photo? has he/she got a name?
Fantastic, glad you are back to the mini fold. Yes this is my vo Cooper. I'm not good at uploading pics on here. I had a 2010 cooper s in laser blue , and it was my 50th this year so thought I'd treat myself. Went for the Cooper and then put in every option I fancied with the money I saved over the s. Present was an executive factory tour the week before Jasper was built. Fab if you get chance and the shop has it all. We're a mini convert family as my wife runs a roadsters s called Damon!:)
Am on here a lot as have a badly broken arm missing driving! Grrrr!

Jasper I love the name. Yes I'm 53 tomorrow my kids think it's hilarious when I roar up the road. But as I say I may be a Grandma now but I sure ain't dead and you can take the girl out if the mini but not the mini out of the girl. life's too short not to have fun. I hope your injury mends soon. valuable mini time being lost

Good for you. We have far too many friends who just buy boring cars because it's easy. Me too 're the arm. Thank you .Totally fed up with daytime tv. Hope the car will start after 6 weeks of sitting there! Wife doesn't seem to want to drive it! She knows it's my baby.

ha ha my husband has a freelander. I told him it's a dead giveaway when he's been for a sneaky drive in mine as he forgets to put the seat back where it was and altered the mirrors, he forgets his wife was on the back row when legs were handed out

my wife thinks i have lost the plot at 45 and razzing around in a VO Cooper S with Remus Cat Back Exhaust. In sport mode and exhaust valve open, it sounds like world war 3 :D
