Good to see you on the forums funky chilli!!!

i use 98 preferably BP, then v-power/optimax. i don't drive a bm, but i find optimax is a little more harsh at idle... and also lends itself to more black soot on the exhaust tips...!

nar i was really tempted to get it but coz i have a union jack rear-vision mirror i thought it'd probably get a little busy

still considering it....never got around to getting them stripes either

there's a reason why i got my sig pic like that, that's what i wnat my car to look like
i'm just missing the checks on the roof and the bonnet stripes at the moment!
but everytime i think of putting new stuff on my car i think, hmm but i want a new one
but i guess i can keep dreaming.....
i really want a new S before the new ones come out....dun want a turbo - LOVE the supercharge whine!

haha... kinda forgot the title of this thread! o well!...

from what i've heard/read/seen, the new s will be an awesome car...

but no matter how good it was going to be, i always had my heart set on owning a supercharged mini at least once in my life! something about that old-school british supercharger charm that just does it for me...!

Nothing but to educate you that a 320 is slower than an Excel (or cannot keep up with it). If you were after a car with abit of go and the Excel costs $5K, you would be wise to choose it rather than spending money that you didn't really work for over a slower car costing $60K.

At the end of the day, it's your money and you choose to buy whatever you fancy, but when you think about it, spending money on something that lacks, it's a worry...and trying to eliminate the lacking with say using higher RON fuel or doing mods just to be on par is even more worrying...
