Hi all, I am a new member to the forum as well as a new (used) Mini owner. I purchased my Mini mainly as a "toad" to tow behind my RV, but have really wanted one for a long time. This just gave me an excuse. Bought a used Mini Cooper S from a dealer in Ohio, who had it on his lot for a long time. Don't have a clue why!! Low mileage and the price was right.
Great car. Runs like a bat out of H#$%#. I am not new to the car hobby as I have been building street machines since the 60's. I also have a 2004 Corvette Z06 and a 37 Ford street rod that my buddy and I built.
I do have one question, "How can you determine if your car has "Sport Suspension"?
Here is a photo of the little fellow. Oh yea, I also am not unfamiliar with British cars as I have owned an Austin Healey 3000 since 1968.
