That Freeman of the land muppet who wouldn't show his receipt at Tesco.
The one who's misses hasn't had a car serviced in 3 years but wants goodwill.

I guess it comes down to age and risk, meanwhile I’m banging up and down the motorway doing 700 miles a week in my 2002 beetle :P

I would give the mini a go, I’m sure it will be ok smile

Why would a mini be unsuitable for this trip? There's only two of them, how much luggage do they have?

Coming from someone who had done York to South London and back on the same day in a old 1.25 Fiesta, it would be extremely easy and alot more comfortable in a Mini.

Anywhere in England isnt far to drive in reality. I have regularly driven from yorkshire to Southampton in a crappy peugeot 308 and its a doddle. A mini one would be no problem and if your wife can't manage it in a Porsche she needs to give her head a shake.
I cycle from Manchester to London in one day, every year. If you think a MINI isn't ideal, try a road bike saddle and factor in your legs are the only propulsion wink

This is laughable. My girlfriend regular drives between the south and north/Scotland inner 3 cyl Peugeot 208. It has cruise and comfy seats and can do 70.

Hmm. Yes, first world problem.

Wife is already pissed that I have effectively abandoned her to make her way up, so was trying to make it as comfortable as possible.

Three in the car, up to a big family wedding, and knowing my family, that will more than a Mini's worth of bags, hats, shoes, people.

Actually, maybe train is the answer,

Mind you, £270 for first class!

Get them on the train. Glass of prosecco and a Kindle, taxi from the station - job done.

3rd party cover from daughter's MINI?
Need to be a bit careful. It often doesn't cover vehicles owned by family members or people living at the same address or something.

All this talk of distances above 20 miles in things like Fiestas makes me shake my head in pity.

I will only go beyond the borders of my county in one of these.
