Friday, May 16th, 2014 was when I attached my plates and drive home in my 2006 Mini Cooper. With a VERY big smile on my face. I'm the 3rd owner. Previous owner took meticulous care of it, every one of it's 84,000 km were treated with love. Parked in the garage, it's name came to me: EE-EE.
Kind of like saying Mini but without the consonants.
I look forward to personalizing it bit. Going to be doing a lot of reading on the boards. So far I've learned that putting on a CAI would be waste of money.
I also concur that the run flat tires SUCK.
Even at bone stock, it wants to go eagerly down the road. The peak torque at 4500 RPM is intoxicating.
A guy I used to work with opened a tuning shop, I think I might be spending a bit more time with him!
Meanwhile, EE-EE is getting me to work earlier than expected
