Scotland Hi there

Hi there just joined today my name is Lisa and I drive a 2002 cooper s. before my cooper s I had a cooper so I'm becoming a bit of a mini freak even convincing a few people I know to buy them when I bought my cooper s 4 years ago I fell in love straight away but had 1 little niggle it had a white roof and white mirror caps but silver alloys. I finally got my wheels powder coated white and to say I love my mini now is an understatement I love it even more I look forward to having a browse through the threads and hopefully chatting with other mini lovers

It's actually not too bad.......if I don't drive anywhere brake dust is more of an annoyance than dirt
