You are trolling the forum, surely?

Ha.. why say that?

A newer mini JCW is bound to be a more reliable car than a much older 156, good on ya!
Completely off brief also, but lifeís like that..

Iím 6í3.. never fitted comfortably in a mini.. nor did two kids under three, the pram and associated crap from Bunnings :)

'66 Duetto (lacework of doom)
'73 1600 GT Junior (ensconced)
'03 156 1.9JTD Sportwagon (daily driver)

I owned that car from 2008 to 2013. I bought it from the original owner, AROCA member Grant Sigston, and sold it to AROCA member Rob Cantle. Rob Cantle sold it to the current owner, who lives up Rockhampton way.

It was an awesome little car to drive (lowered on Eibach springs), but has lived a full 14 years. Both Rob Cantle and I did club sprints in it - a task it handled admirably.

I replaced the gearbox at about 80,000km, after breaking first gear. Belts were always done on time and the service record was kept up to date until 2016. I can't speak to the service record since then.

Good luck with your car shopping.
Yep, Rob's the sort of guy who would look after it well. However, he did run it in the sprints, so it had a bit of a hard life under his ownership. He spent a lot of money on upgrades to it.

Mate, I already warned the wife "I still have to own a V6 Busso at some point".

BUT I dont think "bored of the Porsche" will be an issue.....ever. The recent drive to Toodjay on twisting country roads confirmed this to me last weekend.

This car has more to give than I will ever need.
