2006 Mini Cooper S R53 driver - my first Mini

Hey all,

The past few months I've been shopping around looking for something to replace my faithful, reliable - but terribly slow - little 2012 Vauxhall Corsa. I shopped around and got a feel for many different little "hot hatches", and I whittled my list down to a Mini Cooper S or a Suzuki Swift. The minute I sat in a Mini Cooper S and heard that supercharger whine and the tone of the custom Scorpion exhaust, I was sold. I've had it for a few weeks now, and I can't help but smile from ear to ear everywhere I drive. I think people are starting to question my sanity!

Anyway, here I am, looking to listen and learn from what appears to be an incredibly large and knowledgeable group of like-minded Mini owners and driving enthusiasts. I already have a problem with oil leaking which I'm hopefully going to get sorted by the dealer tomorrow. Apart from that everything is perfect. Attached are a few pictures of my car.
