We've just been to collect our brand-new Mini One Diesel from Wellsway Mini Bath. It was one of eight Minis going out today - and it felt like it. The saleslady still managed to take time to sell us some extra insurance though.
It's a nice little car, but we're still not sure it's the car we should have chosen. Here's hoping it won't end up on my list of How Not to Buy.

Our buying car saga continues. Another hurdle - getting insurance? It's all gambling - if we trash the car, we win. Should we protect the no-claims? What about a courtesy car? Personal injury cover? We were almost lured to one deal by a free toy meercat. In the end we stuck with our usual insurer Aviva, partly because they had all our details while the other lot had a complicated online form that kept crashing. Also because it did include no-claim protection.
Good tip from Carole re buying gap insurance from our own insurer rather than the dealer. See her comment on Buying our car story below.
