Re: Covid 19 - Is is everyone OK?

I haven’t been tested but I’m convinced I had it. Started 3 weeks ago. High fever for 8 days, dry cough, shortness of breath and I lost my sense of smell. Even now, it still hasn’t fully returned. My temperature was 38.8-39.2 most days. I’ve lost about 4kg of my body weight as I was pretty much bed...

Re: Covid 19 - Is is everyone OK?

Work wise I'm fine as I'm a train driver but I haven't seen my daughter for nearly 6 weeks as she lives in Gloucestershire and her mum is high risk with a dodgy heart. Looks like its going to be well into may before we are allowed out, its absolutely killing me not seeing her at the moment but at le...

Re: ParcelFarce fail again

Used to work for UPS (useless parcel service). To be fair I bet they are under even more pressure at the moment and it's a shi#e job as it is. Made me laugh when I went for the job and went out with a supervisor for a couple of days to be told it's a massive responsibility to drive a van around and ...

Re: Mini cooper s or sd from 140i

Ours were both auto so not sure if that made a difference, the cooper you had to drop the gears or get a kick down for it to go ahead the cooper s had enough power to just go.
Also found the cooper had a lot of lag aswell

Re: Mini cooper s or sd from 140i

Well we test drove the 1.5 yesterday, nice little car but when you really gave it the beans it felt way to strained. Asked to take a cooper s put after and the mrs was sold the minute she booted it lol. The fuel economy is still a worry but theres not many diesels cooper s in stock and they dont mak...

Re: Mini cooper s or sd from 140i

This is the problem, like you say options theres not much about.
My wife suggested an abarth 595 , not diesel but not sure what they are like on fuel.
Never going to be a diesel mpg but would think it would be better then the m140.
The 140 has gone today so need to sort something out fairly quick.

Re: Mini cooper s or sd from 140i

We did look at a 125d but just fancied a change really plus the mini is a bit cheaper to buy

Re: Mini cooper s or sd from 140i

My worry with that 1.5 is of you want to get any useable power out of it the mpg is going to suffer.
Think a cooper sd will probably be the one to go for but as pointed out theres not many about lol.

Re: Mini cooper s or sd from 140i

Well I've got an m4 so dont need 2 performance cars really.
Not sure the 1.5 would be quick enough for her really, she still wants something with a good bit of oomph

Mini cooper s or sd from 140i

Hi all, my wife is using my m140 at the moment to go to work but its using quite a bit more fuel then she was used to in her diesel (obviously). Looking at selling the 140 and swapping to a mini (her choice). The cooper sd looks a good car and obviously going to be better on fuel then petrol but has...
