I'm Alexandre, from São Paulo, Brazil, and I just got my first MINI a couple of weeks ago. It's a 2013 Reef Blue Cooper S (R56) with white roof / external mirror covers and a few "me-ifications" such as white hood stripes, white-painted rims and a red internal rearview mirror cover - a picture is attached, by the way.
Needless to say, I'm absolutely LOVING this little car! Its styling makes you smile just by standing there
, and the smile just keeps widening at every corner, every throttle dip, every exhaust pop...
I just love the way the MINI makes you drive pointlessly just for the hell of it...
Things I'm looking into tweaking soon: exhaust (want a little more of that sweet noise, a LOT more pop and the added power too, why not?), intake (noise and power, what else?), brakes (stock ones are pretty good, but I really like a good bite) and some minor styling cues.
Looking forward to chatting with you guys! Take care!
