    Went down to the local Tesco superstore to pick up a sandwich at lunchtime today, as you do. It's 5 minutes from work.

    Pulled into a parking space, noticed there was another Mini Cooper opposite me. Not a surprise, it's a good little car but there's tons of them about.

    By the time I get back to the car, 2 more have added themselves so that's 4 Minis. And also 2 Beetle Cabrios. And a black Smart ForTwo like the one I sold last year. I've obviously run out of imagination..

    Cheers,

    Gaz

    If you think Mini Coopers
    are common, in a Tesco car park or anywhere for that matter, try counting Mercs now they are common! I know if you get a particular car, you do tend to notice that car more, but Mercedes are really common.
    (Still good though. :))

    The C Class and 3 Series are the new Cortina/Mondeo.

    The C Coupe and 4 Series are the new Capri.

    The E Class, 5 Series, and XF are the new Consul/Granada.

    The A Class and 1 Series and Mini are the new Escort

    The CLA is the new Allegro Vanden Plas (but they messed with the rear rather than the front)

    The sheer number of them make them a great second hand bargain!
