Hello from Switzerland
I've been a member for a long time and I think it's about time I join the discussion. I moved to Europe from the US back in 2010 and brought my heavily modified 2002 R53 with me. Ended up in Switzerland last year. Unfortunately, due to some very strict emission/registration process here, it looks like I will have to part with my beloved Mini as it seems there is no way to get it registered (still running Florida plates).
Anyway, glad to finally post.
