    Nice, I'm hoping to arrange a test drive for Thursday while the Mini is in the garage.

    Cheers,

    I would consider adaptive suspension, I didn't and regret it a little.

    People warned me about the suspension in the Mini, but I don't find it a problem and my back ain't getting any younger. Mind you, I did run a Fiat Panda 100HP for 5 years and they've got no suspension at all..

    I'll reserve judgement on the M140 until I've driven it.

    Cheers,

    Gaz

    You'll have to make your own mind up, it's a weird set up - the ride isn't particularly firm but there is a lot of bounce.

    I see what you mean. I'm no suspension expert, but it feels like it needs more damping and less spring. Having just driven there in the Mini (which is on the firm side, but OK) it did feel different. I think I'd probably get used to it though, and I was impressed with the car otherwise. Certainly not short of shove! It's a shame the weather was so vile today. I was on a twisty B road that I didn't know, in somebody else's car, which kind of discouraged pressing on.

    Cheers,

    Gaz

    I do low miles these days and a smaller car suits me, the little Beemer is rapid, struggles to hold on under full throttle but there's rarely a need for full throttle.
