'er indoors just got a mini cooper. The deals on finance just now are so generous that a lot of the other marques can't even get close in terms of monthly costs. I think with 5 year service pack, paint coat, gap insurance and the chilli pack, my girlfriend is paying 220 a month.

You can barely get a half decent fiesta for that. The A1 is a naff looking polo in drag so you'd be as well buying the polo, and the 1 series is good enough, but will cost a bit more even on a basic model.

I'd get another mini, they are giving them away just now!

edit: what about a fiat 500? even an abarth doesnt cost much more than a mini!
