I see, well at least you can have it in the wishlist ;)

Btw how do you find the boot space? :) Is the car practical? :)

No problem at all. The boot space is small but has some really neat expansion adjustments. The rear seats are much deeper than the CC and they fold flat so there is ample storage, certainly no less than the CC offered.

Yes, I think it is very practical - and sooooooo much fun. Very torquey engine, rock solid on the road with no sign of body roll or scuttle shake and extremely well built (after all it is a BMW).

Absolutely no regrets. Every drive puts a smile on my face :lol:
Cheers

i agree.

I have been fond with the Mini Copper S latetly :) especially the Cabrio is very smart design :) a Cabrio that doesn't consume a boot space ;)

Glad you love it so much :)

Don't be so weak :P Currently I have no intention of modding the Zr but that may be because I'm looking for a new house which may also mean no new car for a long long time :cry:

Derek, you'll have no need for a new car for a long time - the Z is a beautiful car and well built to boot - it should give you many years of enjoyment and I suspect will have very good resale value

No, it's a Rover - just rebadged as BMW. Built by rover employees, at the Rover car plants .. with body panels produced by Rover ...

BMW can't make small cars. They bought Rover because they needed a small car, didn't know how to make them and so by buying rover they solved that problem.

Interesting - I'm not sure if ALL "BMW" Mini owners would be glad to hear their car is not actually made by BMW.
