MINI Cooper Podcasting with db, Todd, Gabe, Chad & Brian

Todd & db drive the Cooper D

Todd drivin' the DTodd and db drive the MINI Cooper D on our way out to the Plant at Oxford. Actually, Todd did all of the driving since he was the one to sign for the car, but I did get to ride shotgun.

So it’s known, Todd was aces in getting through London traffic and getting us to Oxford, all in a MINI with the controls on the wrong side!

From the outside, you could tell it was a diesel in sound only. No black smoke, not diesel-y smell, nothing. From the inside it sounded like a well tuned Cooper, even under hard excelleration. Bonus? We got about 70MPG driving between London and Oxford. Stop and go through the city, about 70MPH on the highway. Enough torque to put us back in our seats and avoid the crazy London drivers, but still smooth like an R56.

Next up will be our tour of the plant, including pictures! Check back later for that.
