I took delivery today of my Electric Blue White with lots of add on's. Five months since ordering but worth every second of the wait! My mate drove it and he's never driven one before and I couldn't get him to give it back!!!!!!!!!!
Plus we have a new Jack Russell Terrier Puppy this week. Who sort of has the same attitude 'I might be small but I know how to kick ass!!!!!!!!
I know how you feel, i've felt the same way...
And after driving all day with Coopz in his EB/White MCS i have to say it is a great colour....
Welcome to the board and happy motoring...
Best advice i can give is get together with some other guys on this board in your area and go for a burn
Makes you appreciate the car even more when you see it from in front and behind whilst in amongst the twisties
We went for some wicked bendy bits and it is superb, grin from ear to ear. I've got to say how anyone would want more performance than the standard set-up amazes me! All the people in other cars, who seemed to want to test it's performance, disappeared rapidly in the rear view mirror and that's keeping it down to below 4000 rpm as suggested for the first 1250 miles. On the down side the dog was sick!!!!!!! But she did it with respect!!! Attached pic's as requested, pretty much the norm. Must go dog is sleeping at last.
Just wait 'til it's run in!! I've had my EB/W MCS since November and it just gets better and better
I've also got a Jack Russell - you're right, they do have a lot of the same characteristics as the MINI! BRILLIANT dogs, so much character and so entertaining! Only problem is, they play hell with the leather seats
Someone stopped me the other day when she saw my car and said that the MINI was a 'work of art' - it's perfection. That is so true! Aren't we lucky??
Well the JRT seems to have stopped weeing in the house, not bad for two weeks and the S has got sweeter and sweeter!! Bought a cover that from BMW that is specifically designed for the Mini to cover the boot when the seats are folded down, so should cure any future canine mishaps. Have to say, I try not to boot the S away from the lights as I'm still only at 270 miles on the clock but anyone who fances the chances seems to disappear once I change into second. It's not my imagination though but does the stereo get louder as the engine noise increases? One other thing, it is, all in all, quite quiet in the engine noise department, as 30mph feels like 10mph and 70mph feels like 40-50 mph. I can honestly see some points on my license with out realising it! Dare I ask this but can anyone recommend a decent camera spotter. It's not intentional honest!!!!
