customer feedback

3 cars incl. 2001 Mazda RX-7

My car arrived on Monday, I'm so thrilled to have it! The condition is fantastic, you were right to talk me out of the white one, I can see how much better this car is so thanks. AS you know I've been writing a blog about the whole process, for your info the car in the end came in about $200 under the budget you originally gave me, so kudos. I guess it's time I start looking for a car for my Dad now as well :-)

Rover Mini (MKVII)

In production since 1959, the Mini, voted the second most influential car in history behind the Ford Model T, is one of the world's most recognized cars. Manufactured in the same shape until 2000, MK7 models from 1997 to 2000 can be imported as well as older models under the 1988 and older rule.

The MK VII was the last of the classic Mini shape until the release of the much larger BMW manufactured Mini which has no mechanical relationship to the original. MK7 changes include twin point fuel injection, driver's airbag, air conditioning, improved sound insulation, side intrusion bars, higher final drive ratio and better front seats.
