Who's as old as me and can remember a genuine sticker in a new car that said "RUNNING IN PLEASE PASS"

Me too Shocked , God I'm getting old.

I test drove two coupe cooper s's and noticed how free revving the engines where compared to mine, that's what the question was really about. Those demo cars must have been driven to within an inch of their lives since day one, just wondered if that sort of driving was good or bad for the eventual performance and fuel economy. I've put another 500 miles on the clock since last week and have to admit, the engine has changed beyond all recognition, still loving the car, Very Happy .

I hope you all had a great Christmas, what mini related presents did you get?
My winter tyres arrived yesterday morning, here's hoping we get some snow to justify spending the extra.
