I was contemplating what modern car to get, as my wife has the only modern in the family, and with my daughter on the way shortly, I thought I would get something myself.
After hours of thinking what I'd want. I bought an R53 Cooper S.
I gave 1200 for a 54 plate car with 140k on the clock, a years test and full service history.

Hate to admit it, but I love it.

Yes the ride is harsh, yes the boot is so small that you have to drop the rear seat for a single bag of shopping, yes its thirsty, yes the cabin plastics shake loose, yes its noisy, but it rides well, it's quicker than a wet shit off a shovel, the seats are comfy and if I drive like an old man, it's actually not too bad on fuel... Oh, and the best bit is, if you're feeling rich, the right foot makes the best supercharger whine...

I did also manage to lock myself out with the engine running... That was fun...

:lol:
