    The only peeps i know who own these things are wimmins. One had a Cooper and the other one had a standard one. both colleagues in the same faculty, the standard one then got sold to another colleague in the same office! They all loved them although they didn't like the lack of stowage room.
    You said "turbo" didn't know any of them had a turbo, I know the S had a supercharger, shows what I know.;)
    Anyway hope you or the missus enjoy it!!:):):)

    Gas-Fired power stations because of the dash-to-gas away from Dirty Coal, so their costs went up and they have Shareholders to pay so your price has to go up. :(

    Here's me thinking that a fixed price contract meant that it wouldn't go up:rolleyes:
    Should have 33p on the meter till the solar panels go off but it's now 42 and daily use of electricity has gone up from around 90p to £1.40.

    Mornin all.
    Doggie to the vet in a mo to see what here fate will be.
    Hope they don't have to operate.:(
    did some mucking around with floor tiles and a kitchen unit yessdi.
    Din't paint as someone, (possibly me) hadn't put it away properly last time it got opened, as hardly any was used it was worth cleaning it all up and mixing it properly. But too late to start once I'd done all this. Can't remember being so stupid before. Mucky job too.:mad::mad::mad:
    See yez
