So far I have upgraded the lights to Philips racing vision, fitted front and rear dash cams and to day fitted auto headlights. The car will be for my son eventually. But I’m enjoying it a lot, my other car is a 1600 diesel polo and although the up doesn’t have the power it feels a bit like an original mini.

But manual mirror adjustment which is really old school
Aye, that was almost a deal breaker when we bought our one, but the mirrors have quite a good field of vision without having to stretch over to adjust them when reverse parallel parking, so the wife has, so far, avoided kerbing the wheels!!

I haven’t tried parallel parking yet, it never crossed my mind

I always reverse parallel park, so much easier than driving forward into a space at side of the road. Less chance of kerbing the wheels if using your door mirrors. Is it still part of the driving test? Should be.
