Rob/Semerka I must have missed the dual Porsche his and hers thing! :shock:

Red5 & Semerka's Stable
Carmine Red Cayman GTS + LSD, Man Box, Sports Chassis + more
Volcano Grey Macan SD + 20" Sport Design, PASM & cosy Red Leather

I assume you are both loving the experience still?

It's all Cayman's fault really, for being so good and such a quality car in every aspect, so the Macan joined as a totally different tool. We swap weekly which one we each drive, it's a nice contrast. Rob has the Cayman for his "hooning" and the Macan is for long journeys and Arthur, the labrador. :)

Enjoy the Mini, it does look great. I have only ever driven a ONE version, but did not like it that much. But I assume a Cooper S is a different beast. 8)

Yes I did look into one but once i specced one up it was near £30k which was way too much for a mini in my opinion! I did consider a lightly specced one but dont think i like the body kit and the way the wheels curve outwards due to fitting brakes. I drove the S in isolation and thought the performance was "enough" for me this time around... Hopefully i wont regret the decision lol
