Right back to it!

After last weekends issues:



My daily 330d has been written off through no fault of mine

New car ordered but have a 6-7week wait whilst it’s made, insurers will only give me the hire car until next weekend so mini is been fixed ASAP!

Wheels booked in for refurb and Cup 2’s been fitted

New windscreen booked in for tomorrow.

Going to put it back together over Saturday/Sunday with it’s mot for next weekend I hope!

Fuck that's unpleasant,

Hope you're ok

Yes well the insurance will only give you a car until a decision is made, if you're buying another off the main dealer it wouldn't be out of the question for them to put you in a loaner of the bodyshop or service departments or potentially one of the salesmen's demo's, seeing as this will be the second car in a short period maybe? Bit of dealer support etc?

Everyone is doing ok, that’s the damage after an out of control 107 hits you whilst you’re doing 50mph...

I opted for maximum discount, so doubt they would be willing to help much more :)

Just gives me a reason to pull my finger out get it sorted ready for the summer!

The feds were shot, showing cord on the front two and cracking on the rear.
To be fair the guy who did the screen was spot on, plenty of protection, no issues, think it helped I stayed out and watched like a hawk!

ha yeah, they don't like being watched, they fitted a new screen to my Transit which I couldn't do anything about as it was my brothers claim but even that needs the wipers setting again and I don't think the heater is working so I'll get him to call and test the guarantee haha

mine crack across the tread which is normal for them in track use, apparently. I could see one looked edgy in your pic, I need to swap mine as they're really low now....

I wasn’t leaving it to the last minute, at 8:30 last night I was hard at work getting it ready for its mot today, my mechanic friend picked it up and it made it to the garage without incident and they say these minis aren’t reliable

Should find out what it fails on after lunch time...

I've missed the noise, the bangs and pops. Took my son to football training, then had a play with the suspension a little moving away from the base settings on the compression, kept the rebound as is to start with need more driving to make an informed decision.
