    Nice, I bet that's far more economical on fuel and tyres ;)

    Nope - mine is a saloon without pop. The only difference between mine and the model is the wheels. Mine are 18 inch, which I prefer actually.

    Looks great!

    Genuinely hope you've not bought it outright and there is some kind of lease on it as the residuals are allegedly awful.

    Too early for jokes? :rolleyes:

    These things are really quite nice aren't they?

    When I collected mine from the dealer there was something quite special in the boot for my Son that I had requested as part of the deal (even managed to get the facelift version)

    [​IMG]

    The guys at the dealership were actually falling over themselves to have a look as they thought I was mad when I insisted they throw it in as part of the deal on the new car. Only when they saw it did they realise why

    Not sure if I have to hand it back at the end of the lease though.

    Judging by these tags, it looks unlikely I'd say! :D

    there are a few companies doing these
    minimercs is one
    they have some nice models
    road and track - theres a nice dtm safety car too



    re the tags earlier in the week the moderators blocked them and a few people asked for them to be reinstated as they were useful
    i doubt that it was their intention that they would revert to being used in the snidey manner as previously

    i think there is a thread entitled "tags"
