Now those of you who read my blog, now about my gorgeous little red Mini Cooper, and how much I love it, what can I say it’s my pride and joy and it was a present for my *cough*th birthday 😉

The only thing that annoys me is that with the Mini you don’t get a spare tyre, just a tyre welding kit in the bottom of the boot, just in case you do get a flat!

Yesterday, I had my very first puncture, the first puncture in all the years I’ve driven, so it was bound to happen sooner or later. I pulled into my friends drive and popped in the house, when I came back out I could hear a slight hissing noise and on closer inspection, found that the front tyre had a slow puncture.

So, in an effort to get some help, I rang my Mini service and was told to get it to the nearest tyre service to have it repaired, luckily it was slow puncture, so I managed to get to the tyre garage to get it sorted.

But, unluckily for me, the puncture, a tiny little whole, was in the wrong place to be repaired, so I had to buy a new tyre.

So now after £58 I’ve got three Michelin tyres an a Pirelli tyre, couldn’t get a matching tyre, poodoo!!!

Now a quick message to BMW Mini, redesign the Mini in a way that a spare tyre is “standard” fixture not an optional etc, that way, it would be a lot easier than having the silly tyre welding kit in the boot 😉
