Proud new owner from Texas

Took delivery on a Light White 2012 Countryman S in Late September after placing an order with the factory in July. So far am impressed with the build quality. Interior has a lot of plastic, but I knew that going in. Yes, it is quirky. Yes, it is fun (6 speed manual)! Seats are sport leatherette, they are okay for comfort. Also got the connected package. While not a huge fan of this package, I must say that it is entertaining but somewhat of a distraction. The Harmon Kardon upgrade rivals my Bose system in previous 2000 Nissan Maxima.

Cars name: Big Country Liberty - as for the traditionalists Mini owners, cut me some slack, I'm from Texas and drive a truck and suv's, but love Mini.

After the unfortunate demise of my previous Mini in 2010:

I have finally replaced it with a 2013 Cooper.

(I did actually buy two - one for my wife as well)

I just got one for the family.

2008 Clubman, NA engine, auto, 16" rims and has the steering wheel shifter. I have a few plans for it but I have been getting a few missing things for it like the factory floor mats. (got the back, just need the front now) and a tow hook. Got one more tool that was missing from the foam in the rear to replace. Got the P0015 code popping up then going away so I have been reading up to see if it's just the sensor, the timing chain or the vanos valve causing it.

I like the way it handles very well, looking into adding a little more N/A pep to it. Still exploring what is available for it.
