New Member Intro

Hey Folks,

Joining the mini forum from Australia, having emigrated from UK 6 years ago.
I have always loved Minis from being a kid, and I learnt to drive in a Mini One in the UK in 2005. I specifically picked a company who used only Minis, although i did pay a little extra.

A few years ago i also did a Mini stunt driving day, with hand break turns, jumps, skids etc - so much fun, and just re-enforced how much I love Minis.

Anyways, my dream has always been a Black Mini JCW (hatch) with a union jack on the roof, although after moving half way across the world, i was pretty sure this was a long way off.

Last year, i was browsing the Minis for sale online, as i tend to do on a regular basis, mainly to drool over how awesome they are! I found a really good priced Mini Cooper S for sale, in eclipse grey (close to black) and a Union Jack on the roof. I test drove it, and the rest is history!

I cannot explain how much I love this car, who i have named Austin (from Austin Powers and also the last 3 letters of the reg are AUS). I drive about 70km per day in this car, and it's just so much fun!

I have a few questions, so here i am, introducing myself before i wander off to ask some questions
