Haven't had a chance to do a full cleaning of the interior, that'll be later today. There's a couple spots I want to touch up before I do a full shoot.

Beautiful car. Funny, we sold our Cooper S yesterday and bought an MK6 last week for the wife and kids. I think time will tell that 2nd gen was the best Mini. The first gens were rough, the third gens are bloated. In my experience, the reliability is good and the fun factor is insane. You may have to special order things like filters but it's not a big deal.
You'll be missed MCS

Congrats on the new car dude.
They are a great car to drive, especially the GP
Its unfortunate that in the UK they have a real stigma of being a girls car.
Men here that buy them are unfairly labelled as hairdressers or guys who like to countersink turds.
such a shame because they are a very good car.
Health to enjoy

I think I read the UK sales figures are around 70% female buyers mate.
Thats probably why there is this stigma. The Fiat 500 has the same problem.
Other markets are also finding the same issue with the brand,
