Good luck with your future car.

Doesn't BMW/Mini offer an authorised second-hand programme that you can have a look at?
I don't like the BMW/Mini's. Even though they are quite good, I want a old Mini like the ones on the original Italian Job.

Im addicted to them now.

I know it sounds silly but the Mini was much more fun, even though its not as quick as a GTA its just that its "retro". That make much sence??
147 GTA (in white) would be so much more fun !

The mini would be quicker down the twisties. Its much lighter and much more easy in the corners. The big V6 lump don't make you understeer.
Dont call a 147 GTA a lump..............:rant: :rant:

Its true im affraid, as we all saw on the Wales trip. All the lighter engine cars made a big lead in front of the "bigger" engine bella's.

Honestly, unless the twisties you are thinking about are scaletrix-size, the GTA will eat the old Mini, but that's not the point ;)

I'll own a GTA at one point. Just at this moment I have the money now for the Mini. The GTA's are a lil expensive for me.

Like I said im keeping my bella so don't need 2 atm
