Somebody talk me out of it........

Do you have any other cars? Maybe you're building a new garage? Anything that doesn't fit into the categories above - feel free to put it in here!

It'll be my second kit car, it won't be replacing the Midas. ;)

Quite interested to hear from you how they compare. I once had a drive in a K3 with someone on a GTM open day and was impressed about the speed and roadholding. No harsh bumpyness but very composed and that mid engine is something.

I've been struggling to think of a reason to give you too.

I've always liked the Rossa/K3 and keep looking at them too. Not quite as practical as a Midas but then you've already got one so if you want practical just drive that....

The only valid reason that holds water is "Get the Midas finished first" but that's the pot calling the kettle black!

I've pulled the trigger on the K3, though it'll be a week or so until I have it as they are putting it through it's MOT as part of the deal, and I won't be able to insure it until the beginning of September.

Just in time for the end of summer! Envy envy

You should come along to Mini World Action Day in it then. You may or may not be permitted a space within the Club's patch, probably at the back out of site alongside my Gold :lol:

It certainly isn't a 'front of house' car! When is the action day?
