A wicked little car
Worn tie-bar bushes.
Broken earth strap.
Few rust spots.
I've driven quite a few cars and this is the most fun ever; I always have a smile on my face while driving it and people and other minis wave a lot, which is cool.
It's a standard 998cc, but it goes really if you rev the engine and use the full range of each gear. Revving it makes it quite noisy, except I don't mind because it sounds great And I've taken much of the sound insulation out.
It handles brilliantly on the 10" wheels, and I can beat many other cars around corners without even trying.
The ride is very harsh (avoid speed bumps!), but you soon get used to it, although driving for long periods at 60/70mph can be unpleasant.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
