Many people consider the Porsche 911 the benchmark against which all other
sports cars are measured. But its rivals are no longer limited to cars from
Italy. The Japanese have also shown they can build good sports cars. The

with Porsche's latest 911 Carrera.

equipment with all available engines. The interior has been made even more
luxurious to suggest hand-made quality. Drive it tested the new A8 with a

Our Brand New Mini Cooper with Chilli pack and other extras.
I feel it has become important to everyone thinking of a buying a Mini to
draw their attention to deficiencies at MINI UK.
Our brand new vehicle was delivered with numerous faults to the front,
bonnet, grilles and spats which made it look distorted - the dealership
should have put these defects in order before delivery - even after two
post delivery opportunities they still failed to do so and on top of that
they claimed the vehicle was in perfect condition and that we would not get
the standard of finish that we were looking for which we pointed out was
only the standard shown in the brochures, can be seen on other vehicles in
the showroom and generally on the roadways.
Mini customer service executives Stacey Owen and Zoe Shamrock have shown
blind allegiance to the dealership and failed to be customer focused with a
However Mini telephone customer service person "Andrew", I believe is in a
group with Jamie and John, was extremely helpful and able to look at a
balanced situation and suggested that we take the vehicle to another
dealership for their appraisal. Then if the alternate dealership agreed
with our assessment of the build quality he could look at the matter
further. The alternate dealership did agree and undertook some adjustments
which were professionally undertaken but also said that if they could have
the vehicle for a day they may be able to make further improvements because
there were a number of marks that did not line up. A few days later we
decided to do book it in with this dealership when it became clear that the
original dealership were not going to undertake the modifications and
Stacey Owens and Zoe Shamrock were not going to provide any assistance just
being obstructive and failing to progress the matter.
The vehicle was taken to the alternate dealership and after a day in their
care came out looking good, very much meeting most of our expectations of
what we had ordered in a brand new mini. This dealer also pointed out
something that we had not seen, that the vehicle had a badly fitted rear
offside window and arrangements were made for that that to be rectified and
this has now been undertaken.
Whilst the problems with this vehicle stem from a poor build and inspection
quality in the factory, clearly very crappy. These problems are, I assume,
of a temporary nature due to them being teething problems with the new
front detail. What is totally unacceptable is the dealership and its
response to the facts, that they failed to observe the problems, failed to
rectify them and tried to argue that the poor workmanship was standard and
I understand from the conversation with "Andrew" that the problems should
have been taken in hand and resolved by the Mini sales manager but for some
reason the service manager deemed himself as the person for this role. This
service manager has failed in his duty of care in that his conduct been
argumentative and disrespectful to the customer far from the customer
service standards that should be experienced at a BMW/Mini dealership and
unlike what we have seen at the alternate dealership and that he has failed
to be capable of seeing the problems (probably should have gone to
Specsavers) before and after delivery and failed to satisfactorily resolve
the problems. For the sake of future customers at this dealership it seems
to me that this manager should be relieved of his duties because of his
poor conduct and capability. In addition to this the dealer principal has
failed in his duty to ensure customer satisfaction and listened blindly to
the ranting of his service manager failing to correctly and independently
ascertain the facts of the situation and really should he be looking after
a BMW/Mini franchise with his low service level standards.
When it comes to the Mini customer service executives it is obvious that
Stacey Owen and Zoe Shamrock have talked to the service manager but not to
the customer, they have failed, unlike Andrew, to provide a balanced
service and would question their suitability to be in post.
I do not know what the dealership hopes to achieve with its negative
responses, incorrect statements and deceitful comments in the couple of
letters that they have they have produced they certainly do not improve
their standing in the matter.
I have tried here to simplify the situation here, clearly do not let the
excitement of a new car overtake you, check the vehicle thoroughly before
paying for it but if you make the mistake do not expect service from Zoe
Shamrock at Mini UK, if you are unfortunate to be involved with her and
definitely beware of buying a vehicle from a poor quality Stratstone
The One With The 2013 MINI John Cooper Works GP! - World's Fastest Car Show Ep. 3.8
Developed in the wind tunnel and tested on the... go-kart track. It's the
fastest MINI ever built, but rather than speed, Justin chooses to put its
"Go-Kart like" handling to the test. As if the tight corners and short
straights weren't a challenge enough, Justin must fend off rising karting
star, Gino Alfonso-Macauley for the victory. Can 211hp and a turbo-charged engine overcome the home field
advantage given to the much better suited kart? Of course not, but it's fun
to watch Justin try.

Unlike the 1959 original, today's BMW-developed MINI is an expensive
'premium' small hatchback. That hasn't stopped thousands flooding the
roads, and an extensive options list means it's easy to make every MINI
feel unique. Excellent resale values and economical engines make owning a
MINI cheaper than you'd think, too. Six versions, from the basic First to
the high performance John Cooper Works offer something for everyone, unless
you need much space for luggage or rear passengers, that is. All versions
share the same quality feel and are brilliant fun to drive.

excellent fuel economy like the Cooper D. We take the car by the scruff of
its neck to find out if it really is the perfect balance. For more videos,
