Haven't posted in a while, and February includes my MINI's "birthday" at Plant Oxford (2/23/12).
Since delivery in late March, 2012:
it's covered 46,000 miles
has averaged a bit over 34 mpg US
participated in local club rallies
was part of MINI Takes the States 2012
enjoyed northern Arkansas hills and curves at MINIs In the Ozarks 2012
posted a 135.9 standing mile at The Texas Mile in March, 2013
enjoyed SCCA Solo autocross
mixed it up with Corvettes at a NCCC autocross in August 2013
joined 800+ other MINIs at MINIs on the Mac in U.P Michigan August 2013
What's caused trouble? Nothing at all! Oil changes, front brakes at 30k miles, rear brake pads soon. Switched to Blizzak winter tires on the stock rims, and Conti DW's on a new set of JCW
Nice to reflect on all the great motoring so far!
