    Hi All,

    Been reading this forum for almost a year now (since I got my Leon Cupra), but only just got around to signing up.

    Looking forwards to speaking to you all.

    Cheers!

    Welcome :) get some pics up of your car when you get chance!

    Have you got any plans to modify or are you keeping it stock?

    Hi Paddy, I've got some plans for it but its near enough stock at the moment - will post myself a build thread soon so keep an eye out for that - I'm planning on spending some time at the track this year so will be doing supporting stuff for that.

    First fast car I have owned - done 7k miles in it myself (first 1k put on by the dealer, It is ex demo, bought at 6 months old), before this was a Diesel Clio and a 1983 Mini (which I still own, but is off the road).

    Nice car and welcome!

    Ooo a bit of track day stuff that's when real money gets spent haha new discs pads and tyres a plenty lol

    Your mini is 1 year older than me... That's awesome! Always wondered what a 6ft 3 person would look like getting out of an old school mini!

    Look forward to your readers ride.

    Proper old school mini with the bus type steering wheel no problem even for me at 6'4". The slightly newer ones (80s) were more of a problem....

    Thanks guys.

    I'm over 6ft - surprisingly fit OK in the little thing, bit of an unconventional driving position though.
