    I'VE SOLD MY MINI COOPER - GUTTED!!!!!

    The time has come for me to wave farewell to my beloved Mini Cooper. I'm so gutted! i LOVE this car so much but the demands on life can be ever so cruel.

    Basically I can't do with a 3 door anymore, a boot the size of a match box and BMW's worst after sales service in the world. Not to mention, rip off parts & repair charges. (Breathes a sigh of relief)

    However I was a proud Mini owner for 4 years.. one for the photo album folks (Shed's a tear)

    Know how you are feeling
    My Jag XK8 had to go the other week...
    Still not over it, and still not replaced it.....its too hard... (also sheds a tear) :thinking:

    I'll sob with you too. My hubby sold his lovely little BMW mini last week (to pay off the finance) as he's got a company car.

    The bad thing about this is that with the credit crunch it had to go. I'd been zooming around in it for the past 6 months, loving the electric windows, bleep bleep alarm and power steering.

    Sadly i'm now back with my 9yr old dinted saxo (which got vandalised) with no electric windows and no bleep bleep lock and no power steering sob x

    im a proud owner of a daewoo, i love it! even if i win the lottery im keeping it and stickin a v8 in there! i recommend u get a deawoo lanos! has a quality part in the film pineapple express!

    I've already replaced my Mini for a Astra Design. Feel like i've gone down in the world but my car was one hell of a drinker. Most CVT semi -auto's are! :x

    ah u see i wont have that problem, my daewoo has the same amount of street cred as a skoda (maybe less its up for debate) so whenever i get a new car, it will definately be an upgrade! looool

    nah, credit crunch, went for an LP640 :oops:

    Sorry to hear this .................................... but on a happy note my son has just passed his driving test WOO HOO (after 2 years and 6th Attempt!)
    & has just ordered a brand new Citreon C1 Red (5 door) as you can imaging he is over the moon & I have never seen him smile so much.
    £6505 on the road '58 plate' (tax is only £35 a year for these) Insurance group 1 but almost £1,000 year as it's his first car.(ouch)
    bit small but not bad for a first car, eh?

    Congratulations to your son but no no no no no no no... Tell him not to buy a brand new car for his1st car, his insurance will rocket, plus the depreciation on the car after 12 months is gut wrenching! :w00t:

For this car his insurance is just under £1,000 .. & also this has the lowest emitions known to man ... lol & the whole reason for buying this one was because they only depreciate about £1,000 in 2 years.

    WRONG !! Demand for these 65mpg+ cars with £35RFL has gone through the roof. Values will hold up nicely, thankyou very much.

    C'mon guys... All cars depreciate, its a well known fact that you lose 17.5% (VAT) the minute you drive it off the forecourt!:roll:
