Chopping mrs old mini for a newer one, agreed the deal, cant find the VC5 form. Is this something the dealership will insist on ?

I could request a new one from the dvla, but it will take a while.

You can transfer the car online AFAIK - That's what the owner of the car I bought recently did. DVLA website will be able to tell you, as should the dealer but they're only salesman a lot of the time.

Looks better than an evoque, also that colour is not exactly offensive, just a dark blue.

Brilliant car. Been testing them from build to market. 3 litre diesel is the engine to go for.

Aluminuim body same platform as the new rangy will be based on. Why anyone would buy a bmw audi or merc over a jag has always escaped me. The new fpace is awesome

I ordered one of those Audi A4 1.4 TFSI Avants as a run around/courtesy car for work. It was too good to pass up on £150 + VAT per month! Should be here in 2 weeks.

You're gonna use a leased vehicle as a courtesy car!? You realise that they have to be handed back in good condition, right?

Been doing it for years. I'm in the trade so getting them back to good condition cheaply isn't an issue and the people taking them are responsible for any damage.

not sure I'd want to drive down to Italy in it though

Cool , Why not drive down to italy though? Love driving in the alps but only ever done it in a rr (and an og mini, that was pretty sweet but broke down like shit) must be magic in an exige with the roof off?

love it but now I know what you mean..
