Ferg's Volcanic Orange & Black F56 MINI Cooper 'Mango'

Postby MiniMpi » Wed Feb 17, 2016 5:19 pm

I took delivery of my latest MINI yesterday.
I ordered an F56 MINI Cooper Petrol in Volcanic Orange with a Black Roof.
Thrilled with the car ! :)
I bought it from Morrison MINI in Cahir and Caroline the salesperson was just outstanding from start to finish.
Constant updates on where it was in production etc etc.
Highly recommended.
Going to call it Mango :)

Some photos of the collection yesterday.

Well there is nearly 15,000 km's on it now and I just Love this car !!! :)
It is just so nice to drive, the handling is great, the engine note from the 3 cylinder is very nice and it hasn't taken a drop of oil since I bought it.
I got the oil and filter changed at 14,000 km's as the condition based servicing is off the wall in that it is still saying another 20,000 km's before it's to get it's first oil change, so that would have been 34,000 km's !!! which is ridiculous and way to long. The oil would be like bovril !
To sum up, I'm very happy indeed :)
