    Thanks everyone for a great day! I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was great to see 14 MINIs turn out despite the questionable weather! I usually take loads more pictures.. but here's a selection of what I managed to snap. Does having a dirty bum ^ represent that you've had a good time? Or is that something else? 🙄

    Im sure if you buy the special edition Italian Job box set it gives you a behind the scenes look at how they made the gen 1 MINIs for the film. Its quite interesting actually

    What a cracking run. Super turn out. Excellent driving and excellent company. Thanks to everyone for making it such a great event. I had a very Pheasant time (chortle). My car is 'back to normal' already 😂 #needtogetalife.

    So I’ve unintentionally bought myself a cooper that’s pretty similar - if you squint - to the blue one in the 2003 movie. I’m not a racing demon but I used to ride motorbikes and finding myself wondering about my new car’s capability 😂. How much are these minis modified in the movie? Also I think they are the r56 and I have the chunkier f56 - the nose pains me but it’s ‘pedestrian friendly’. Also I have to say I only have the cooper, no sport or above. I’m definitely getting rally spots, I put premium fuel in cos it sounds better, might be better? What advice for the novice?! (Be nice.. I’m no racing driver or mechanic, BUT in my favour I’ve won every go-kart comp I’ve been in, I like driving lol)

    So @Littleredhead said farewell to Letti, the Cooper S. It was touch and go really in regards getting another MINI, and what with Donna trying to decide between an F56 S or and Audi S1 she only went and bought a 595 Competizione! Go Figure LOL. Its pretty well specced to be fair, and what with the 595 Competiione having 180bhp in something that weights as much as a shoe, its pretty damn good if im honest. Yes its only a 1.4, and the seat position is odd an high, it certainly has the noise from the full monza exhaust system and pace of something Donna would really go for. Its got a BMC induction kit, special black leather upgraded seats, carbon fibre steering wheel centre section, alcantara dash top, full Brembo brake package with drilled front and rear discs and a pretty funky full LCD dash. Donna says she can get more shopping in this than the MINI, but I wouldn't know anything about that comment haha. I think ive surprised a few who ive taken out in it @LCWElvin @Kai2k Picture timeeeeeeeee....

    Premium fuel is bound to be better for the engine, it’s more refined. It’ll give that little extra go too, being purer. i feel a go-kart session may be needed 😂

    Hi guys back on the scene after a small break originally had one of the first modded gen 1 one’ds in the country my car was used by k&n and viper to create the right filters. Happy to advise on gen 1 diesel options. had a break from minis due to having a young family andwork/recession issues. Collect our countryman this Wednesday sort of making good of a bad situation diagnosed with a brain tumour last may so I’ve had to surrender my licence and sell the family car Skoda superb Lauren and Kreme estate. My wonderful wife has worked so hard and has passed her test and is now itching to get the mini. looking forward to catching up with old friends and meet new people

    So a week in and I’ve learnt 1) no one waves back in minis 2) I’m loving racing off lights 3) seagulls & their sh*t love my white roof 😂

    Holy crap! It’s like Xmas eve eve eve eve! been checking weather and sorting car prep! Weather depending, my cat back on Friday plus an upgrade Diverter valve plus from the Hartside run, a short shifter, AEM intake and Forge IC to keep me near the back ;(!!!!! Forecast is it could be damp in the morning!? Another forecast said ‘who actually gives a flying.....duck!’

    Photos!! One arty one at home Happy rating is high waking up this morning!! So, been doing some reading, is it best to use premium high performance rather than bog standard petrol?

    Very nice!! I’m thinking rally lights maybe (not sure this is modding it) but that would be going full on cheesy Italian job then 😬... my car makes me so happy. Finally!!!! I’m a Mini Cooper owner!

    I know what you mean. I've had one for a couple of days and they are quite nippy! They are really nice to drive, too.. No wonder you're loving it! 😁 Mine's a 2013 Roadster John Cooper Works. There is a little bit on my profile but it's mainly detailed on my build thread. Are you planning any modifications for your new car then, or just keeping it standard? I know that modding isn't for everyone ☺️

    I had bonnet stripes on both of my hatches and think they really suited it. Some colours suit bonnet stripes and some don't but it's all down to personal taste! I've always added John Cooper signatures to mine to give them a bit more of a feature. I'm sure whatever you've gone for it'll look great 😁

    Yeah I’m about 60/40 in favour of bonnet stripes but I just think it will look 👌 on my one .. made my decision now tho & sticking with!! Will post pics on thurs. cheers everyone!

    Test fitted the TDs today. Ignore the monster truck look as the suspension didn't settle. It'll need lowered for a really clean look but for now I think they look alright! Looks to be a good fitment too
