Australia Finally Got A MCS!!!

Hey guys & girls!

Found this beauty on the net a while ago and had my eye on it when it was private sale...it then finally went to a dealer and I snapped at the chance to get it... It's a pretty high spec 2007 MCS with only 44,000k's!

Here's some pics, can't wait!!!! I'm still spotting more and more extras every time I look at the pics! What can you see? It might be something I miss!

I pick it up lunch time tomorrow!!! Will post more pics soon when I have it home and give it a proper detailing!

Good luck ! Its a great car , identical to mine in Scotland minus the bonnet stripes ! You will love it . Can't see if you have the sports button or the ATC ON/OFF but Ive never used mine anyway , it is fast enough without them . Never had a real problem with mine since I got it ( slight turbo leak for a bit ) but apart from that , sound !
Bit cramped in back but hey , didn't buy it for taking kids about in it.

Enjoy !

Hey guys! Thanks for the lovely comments! I am well pleased with my new MINI! Still hasn't sunk in that I am finally driving an "S" and have the power to overtake most cars on the road now with ease compared to my Cooper! Now I'm seeing more and more Cooper's on the road, I sit and think "hey that used to be me....dreaming about owning a "S" one day....!!!

I have a sports button.... have tried it once...

Finally got my personalised plates put on....! Am coming upto a month of ownership now and I'm loving it! Now I'm just stuck deciding on what mirror covers I'm wanting to go with this time... I might even think of getting a rearview mirror cover just for something different!

My first MINI Cooper was black with a white roof and mirror caps.....so prob won't go with white... and then my Cooper Cabrio I went with Chrome mirror caps and boot hinges....I'm not sure if I wanna stick with the Chrome as I think it looks quite stunning with the black or go with something completely different and get like the Black Union Jack covers....

Wanting to keep everything looking not too over the top as I have the silver viper stripes and I don't wanna turn it into an ice cream truck! I am definitely open to other MINI enthusiasts opinions...

Here's some pics of my personalised plates finally on... I'll have to do a bit of a photo shoot when I get some time!

Well I took a few more pics today with a wannabe MINI! My boyfriends new XR4....Just a coincidence that his new car happened to be the same sort of colour with the same colour stripes as my MINI! They make a cute couple I think!!
