New tyre ordered. No not worn em out yet we've only done 2500 miles -got you all going though didn't I-still finding the car so much fun and so much zip I easily could have done. Whacking great nail in it-Mini don't recommend a repair due to the amount of torque that goes through the fronts-I suppose I could put it on the rear, but on a brand new car? Anyway Sopers can get me one today for £130 which is after balancing etc exactly a match for the online cheapies price wise so it's book in for a new one. Will keep the punctured one get it repaired-nail is in the middle of the tread not sidewall and use it for a spare! Might even see if I can find a wheel and get it fitted. While I was at it I ordered the balancing tool from them to keep in the boot-if that had happened while away anywhere we might have struggled to get the tyre balanced although Mini did say Kwik Fit are supposed to have them! That's my pocket money for the month down the drain!
