the sound is part of what has always attracted me to them, i fitted a miltek system today which along with the ram air filter that was on it when i got it makes it sound mental when you give it some, the fuel consumption is not quite as bad as i was expecting and iam sure it will go down a bit when i have had it for a while and stopped driving it just to make noise. i will definatly be making meets when possible, when and where is the next meet?

I get 20mpg out of mine! Cheeky!

Welcome along, looking forward to seeing the car Smile

And don't knock minis until you've driven one hard enough to put it on it's roof Very Happy Not looking at anyone in particular DUBDOM Rolling Eyes

We meet every first thursday of the month, currently at Cow Roast on the A41 (generally after a convoy from Hemel) Smile so just missed one but if you look in the "Shows/events" forum bit there's a list of everything going on, including weekend shows and things like Ace Cafe VAG night etc sunny
