    Yup, I know the feeling. Had it since my first MINI in 2007. I've never looked back since.

    My first R56 S was the best car in the world. I couldn't see past it. It was going to be my forever car that I would never sell. That didn't go quite to plan.

    Took me a while to make mini number 2 my own but I think it's definitely getting there. Didn't fall for it like my first mini but after being over to the west coast and doing a few runs in the Highlands it's definitely growing on me. Still a few tweaks to be done.

    I just have to look at GP1499 and I grin from ear to ear.

    For me now itís the great memories it brings back most of which are from when Iíve been out causing chaos with my NMS Family.

    I've owned mine over 13 years and never plan on selling it, it's really got under my skin.

    It'll get a full restoration if it comes to it

    & you've certainly gotten under the skin of your R53 Gordon, one epic MINI

    I had one of the very first Sís when they came out, after I sold that I vowed Iíd never have another mini, roll on a few years and I randomly decided I wanted another. Had it a year and a half now, spent more repairing the broken bits under the bonnet that I did on the whole car, away to spend another chunk on it for some repairs and a wee mod or two, not to mention the requirement of owning your own North Sea oil field to keep up with the burning oil issue, plan on keeping her for a few years until I can afford my mid-life crisis car!
