Happy to be here!

Hi there -
I'm new to the group; Laser Blue 2007 Mini Cooper S 79000 miles; bought new by my daughter; I bought it from her after she found that the car wasn't really all that friendly to new babies... so they bought a Prius and I bought their Mini! I'd always coveted that car anyway...

Been a car guy forever- started with a new MGB/GT (!) in '73; went on to a '75 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce 2000, then 1st Gen VW GTI (not at all The Thing for city driving - txmsn ratios too short!)
While in Germany with the Army had a Euro '86 BMW 535i w/ M5 suspension under it - Wunderbar everywhere except snow!
Bought there/ brought home a Saab 9000 Turbo -- Autobahn eater - cruise in comfort at 115 MPH all day, highest ever 145mph...!
Once back in the states in 96 a Kansas barn car - a '68 Mustang coupe w/ 302/4V engine and 45000 original miles... fun restoration job!
And now the Mini - LOTS of fun, but ... trying to figger out the acceptable lubricants, coolants etc to feed it since the dealers are NOT close to my rural MD home...

Rick
