So it's been an interesting week or so, I said a sad farewell to the most brilliant of MINIs, simply couldn't justify spending the continual repair costs, give his age and ever creeping mileage I took the difficult decision to swap out to a new set of wheels...

Adios Wicker'd Wonder, Hola JCW ALL4 Paceman...

Nice one Lee, shocked to see WW go, but what a cool (and rare) beast to replace him with. Cool

I love the shape of the Paceman......

If there was an F series that's what I would have gone for. Looks cool dude...

Looks stunning Lee, I've always been a fan of the Paceman, much prefer the rear of it over the Countryman. Look forward to seeing it Big Grin

I hadn't appreciated fully how different the back end really is, does look like a very different car indeed from the booty Very Happy

Having spent yesterday looking at it it does look great from behind, but it’s the way the body flares over the rear wheel arches!

Thanks DB, I'm slowly getting used to it (or should that be quickly getting used to it!) so much more oomph than the Clubbie and that seemed quick Laughing

Berry Heathrow gave me JCW Countryman to try, 3 weeks (yes 3 weeks) later they came to collect it! It was fun after I got used to it having got the JCW Clubman at the time. I was tempted if they could get the sum right but they didn’t!
