Just introducing myself. I just got a promotion and a nice raise and decided to buy myself a really awesome car. Turning 30 in a couple months and figured it's about time I graduated into "dream car" territory. Found this '07 Mini Cooper S with most if not all JCW
options on CL near Chicago and jumped right on it. While I have no idea how the guy drove it, at least he kept it in immaculate condition.
I'm fairly used to internet forums (also own a '75 BMW R90/6 motorcycle and a '86 M1009 Ex-Military K5 Blazer which require constant upkeep that I can't afford to pay someone else to handle), so I know the drill in that respect. The Mini is my first though, and I'm really excited about it. By far the nicest car I've ever owned.
Well that's about it. See y'all around!
PS: I don't do a lot of cycling outside of the city, so I did not opt to purchase the roof rack from the seller of the car. So the car looks like that but without the roof rack.
