MINI Factory – Pistonheads Sunday Service at 29,200 miles

30 January 2011 - Filed under: Events

Despite living in the same city as the factory where the MINI is built for the last five years, and at one point driving past it daily I’ve never ventured inside. Ironically it takes me far longer to get to the dealership where I bought my car than it does to get to the factory where it was made. Anyway, when Pistonheads announced that they were holding one of their regular Sunday Service gatherings at MINI it seemed like an ideal opportunity to go and have a nosey around.
