Cruise ready light. Its a bit annoying as you now have to turn cruise on, then set speed to get it active. On the e90 it's just one push of the lever

Glad you're enjoying it Tim, perhaps a mini NM meet will come up one day and we can have a bit of an N54/N55 Generation Game blast!

Yeah sure. I am sure there will probably be space for a blue Audi in there too...

What a bummer; I detoured so I could hit Hatfield tunnel, muscled my way into the traffic, greated a huge gap (much to the annoyance of traffic behind) hit record, turned the phone to myself, shouted "E90POST TUNNEL RUN!" twisted the phone round as I simultaneously booted the throttle and the fecking battery went flat.

I will record something over the weekend, fear not

Sorry, i forgot a 330d sounds more manly, gruff, basey and generally always better than a 6 cyclinder petrol at 7k revs

Ultimately it isn't as quick, but it feels quick because you are so much more involved in the process.

Clearly MINI is about involvement, whilst BMW does all of that and more, just with more refinement. The down side then is that it doesn't feel as quick because you don't feel the car working for it.

Also, as the tree huggers force us into ever more efficient cars turbocharging is becoming the norm. The perceived wisdom of the manufacturers then seems to be that we don't want them to seem like they are turbocharged, so they linearise the power.

Winter boots fitted on Friday, and by the looks of the forecast for this week, just in time!
