    I can recommend an excellent detailer. Not sure where your based but Ultimate Shine Autos in Stirling are a first class outfit specialising in prestige and custom cars. Seen loads of minis there and their prices are good. Just ask for Trevor or Scott. Oh and don't forget to tell them who recommended them. Hope you enjoy your paceman

    Thanks for the recommendation! There’s a top notch detailer in Perth that we’re going to hopefully pay a visit to!

    As for enjoying the Paceman, so far so good, love the thing!

    There’s just nothing finer than spending ages looking fora car and then falling in love with it when you do eventually get it.

    To be fair though my last 5 cars were all decided upon, and then bought, within 4 days of me deciding on what I wanted.
    I wonder what it’s like to be impulsive ?

    I’ve been looking for this car for a long time, every other one I’ve looked at had the wrong wheels (I know they can be bought but couldn’t be bothered with the hassle), or the wrong interior, or the wrong lights.... this one has everything I wanted!

    So I now have the fun of a mini in a practical family size! She’s a thirsty beast though, worse mpg than my 2.0l RenaultSport, just as well these are nothing more than numbers!

    Mini for me was a impulsive buy, went for a look, had a test drive, decided I wanted one but had to convince the boss. Next again day picked it up.

    Our F54 Clubman JCW is a thirsty beast but that's not what the car is about. For us it's a fun, practical way to combine MINI ownership with a bit more space.

    Exactly, it was only while flicking through the computer that I realised what the fuel consumption was, a healthy appetite is surely a sign of a happy beast!

    ...and a very unhappy bank account.
